What is crowdfunding?

Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


On Sunday 28th October 2018 I will be running the Dublin City Marathon πŸƒβ€β™‚οΈπŸ’¨

This will be my 4th Dublin Marathon and the 1st one which I will be fundraising for. I'm not a big fan of asking people for money but having completed the previous marathon's, people often asked "who I was running it for?" I'm currently following my own 16 week marathon training plan & am aiming for a time around 3hr 15mins.

If your reading this please take two mins & contribute towards my goal.

I have chosen 'Teconnaught Cross Community Pre-School' because my two eldest children have attended the school and I feel they carry out a fantastic job with the young people within our surrounding community.

They are a registered charity & depend on fundraising to provide the best start for our pre-school aged children so please follow me in supporting them and donate today. Their BiG goal is an outdoor educational play area which will cater for the surrounding area.
Your donation will be greatly appreciated by me and will make a big difference toward them.

Thank you. Dermot :-)

    Weekly update for all you social bunnies! 11 week's to go - Dublin Marathon 2018. Feeling tired earlier in week so that meant a couple of easy runs before Wednesday evening session with the lads. Intervals which were hard but those are the runs that are rewarding. Got a nice 17m in Sat morning with Gareth. It makes it so much easier when you've company. Next week it'll be more of the same. Run coming up is Strangford 10K which I'll run with Gareth & incorporate as part of a long run.

    12 week's to go...... A good week's training which incorporated a long run with some quicker miles on Saturday. Mid-week with the Wednesday evening crew, Gandalf, GK, Tarmac Ray, The Rainman Jimmy & Stevie saw us do some tempo work & a couple other easy runs kept the legs going. Tired enough today so planning easy miles this week with long easy run next weekend.

    13 weeks to go..... A good week's training with the normal Wednesday evening session replaced with the Downpatrick RGU 10K. A very tough run but with it spent with friends, (the 1st half spent with Philip & 2nd half chasing down Teaguie) I finished 40.53. Received a cup for 1st M35 so was chuffed 😁 Long run this week, 15 miles with GK, always good to have company on those. The week ahead same as before πŸƒπŸΌβ€β™‚οΈπŸ’¨
