A Chairde;

Naomh Éanna stalwart Dara Mac Coille will be #RootingForReece this Saturday when he competes in the gruelling White Bear Iron Man Triathlon taking place across the Glens of Antrim, in aid of his Nephew Reece, who is battling against Leukaemia.

Dara will be swimming 2.4 miles; Cycling 112 miles and finishing with a full marathon 26.2 mile Run; keeping him occupied from dawn until midnight on the 10th June.

Needless to say any support that we can offer Dara would go a long way.

If anyone is around the Glens between 7am and midnight on Saturday please take some time to give Dara some support around the course.

He will pass through Ballygally every 3-4 hours from 7am. The specific routes can be seen at the links below:
