Our thanks to Jessica O’Reilly from County Cavan, whose father, Padraig Smith, undertook fundraising for Lupus Research here in St. Vincent’s, raising a most welcome €2,000 for this important medical cause.
Padraig cycled from Mizen Head to Malin Head on his own. He covered this distance of 660 km over four days, which is an enormous achievement, beyond the capacity of most.
His wife Sheila followed him in a support vehicle. As depicted in the photographs Padraig’s family were on hand to cheer his arrival into Malin Head. Well done and thanks to all.
