“We are very proud to once again partner with Goal for the 2019 Goal Christmas Day Mile” explained Raheny Shamrock Athletic Club P.R.O Dave Hooper.
“Raheny Shamrock Athletic Club have organised a Christmas Day race or run since our very first Christmas in 1958, which enshrined our home in Raheny and the surrounding community.”
“In 1972 the club set-up base with our ‘race down the avenue’ in St. Anne’s Park, which has become a great meeting point and competitive race, enhanced by the donation of trophies from families who have made such an ever-lasting contribution to our club.”
“We have partnered with Goal since 2001 and are proud to support the work that Goal contribute to the third World.”
“We look forward to welcoming everyone on Christmas Day and hope all members and friends of Raheny Shamrock Athletic Club have an enjoyable Christmas and Happy New Year.”
