Notice...Twomey Family Remorial Weekend 4 mile in Meelin - Sun 11th June 2017

This 4 mile event is coming up in the village of Meelin in NW Cork on Sunday the 11th of June 2017. It starts at 2pm and will be chip timed.

The entry fee is €10 or €15 if you want the event dry fit top...


The village of Meelin is just to the north of Newmarket in NW Cork. Meelin is signposted from the crossroads in the centre of the town. (The signpost says 6kms although it is actually 7k).

Stay on the R578 road for Chareville for 2.3kms until you come to a crossroads.

Turn left for Meelin (Signpost says 3kms although it's really about 4.7k).

Course......The 4 mile course has been accurately measured and takes in a 4 mile loop to the south-west of the village.

From the organisers....We began Twomey Family Remorial in June 2014 in honour of my late husband Con and our beautiful 16 month old son, Oisin and his precious unborn sister Elber-Marie, whom we lost as a result of a tragic car crash whilst holidaying in Devon on July 6th 2012. Our Twomey Family Remorial Weekend is centred on valuing how precious life is. 

Twomey Family Remorial has now raised over €110,000 thanks to the huge support we have received from near and far. This phenomenal amount will certainly help many people in need and please God save lives. This money has been raised for the hospitals who looked after us after the crash, for Bru Columbanus in Cork, where my brother Tomas and I would have stayed for the last few weeks before Con left (they provide home from home accommodation for the relatives of seriously ill patients in the Cork hospitals) and for suicide support groups, Pieta House, 3Ts, Suicide Aware (Cork), ReachOut and Walk In My Shoes.

The aim of our weekend is to Remember Con, Baba Oisin and Baby Elber-Marie and to promote the value of how precious life is. Our weekend begins on Saturday morning, with the Under 12 ‘Connie Twomey Memorial Cup’ Hurling Blitz, this is followed by a table quiz on Saturday Evening. On Sunday 11th, we have a 55k & 110K cycle in association with Cycle Ireland and Kanturk Cycling Club, this is followed by Mass, and we have a 4 mile Family Walk and a 4 mile run. 

This year Twomey Family Remorial is supporting Bru Columbanus Cork, St Josephs Foundation Charleville, ReachOut, Cork Samaritans and 3T’s, all of whom are formidable organisations.
Our Run is chip timed and is in association with Duhallow Athletic Club.
