Sponsors Poster 2014

Brain Tumour Ireland are delighted to announce that our super supporter Michael Feeney has been chosen as an escort at this year’s Rose of Tralee Festival.

Rather than accept corporate sponsorship for his participation, Michael has instead opted to enter the Rose of Tralee at his own expense and promote Brain Tumour Ireland at the Festival.

Supporters of Brain Tumour Ireland might remember Michael as the man who survived on nothing but camel milk for seven days in aid of the charity earlier this year.

Keep an eye out for Michael at this year’s Rose of Tralee Festival between the 14th-20th August.

The End of the Earth

Finisterre 0KM. Nowhere left to run!

Finisterre 0KM. Nowhere left to run!

I made it.

22 marathons to the end of the earth for Ronnie and Brain Tumour Ireland. It has been a tough 3 weeks, full of highs and lows but there was an overwhelming sense of relief to finally reach Finisterre with literally no where left to run.
At the "End of the Earth"

At the “End of the Earth”

It was physically and mentally demanding to get up and running every morning but the Camino seems to bring something out in people to dig deep and keep going.

I knew it wasn’t going to be easy but it was definitely worth it. Although the Camino had been a personal achievement, the real success was the amount of awareness generated for Brain Tumour Ireland through the outstanding support from everyone back home.

So from myself and on behalf of Brain Tumour Ireland I just want to say a massive thank you to everyone who has shown their support.
