And what a running quest from John Cawley now on 24 of his 32 half marathon challenge, John completed Tipperary and Donegal this month for his 32 County Half Marathon Challenge and it’s 24/32 completed. John Was meant to run the Magee Wild Atlantic Way HM a couple of weeks ago but unable to do so because of my fathers sudden death. Never easy in Donegal with its hills and the heat also being a factor. This one was for you Dad.Well done John.
