We provide specialist palliative care to patients suffering from terminal illness


We are challenging all our members young and not so young to take on the Éire Óg solo challenge. 

What It involves is completing a run of a distance that is suitable to your fitness level or age, but you have to solo a Gaelic ball throughout the full run. What we ask is that you donate £1 for every Kilometre you complete. We would like to get past £486 which would mean we have soloed the equivalent length of Ireland. I know we can complete this and more.

This is a time when we all need to pull together and really try and do any small thing to help some fantastic causes out there. Charities are really struggling during these uncertain times and if we can help in any small way then we have to try.

Let’s get the challenge started we will leave it open for 3 weeks starting from 27th April until 17th May for you to complete  your run or runs. No limit on how many runs you can do.

This challenge can be completed by all levels from our youngest mini Ogs through to our Senior Men’s and Ladies teams, it will provide all with a welcome distraction and will lift spirits.

Even if the challenge is not for you we welcome any donation no matter how small.

So let’s show what our club is really made of, have set a modest enough target of £1500 but I know we can smash this.
