Ned Buggy Memorial Run to raise funds for Pieta House this weekend

The Ned Buggy Memorial Run takes place this Sunday.

This Sunday will see a memorial run take place at St Abban's AC club grounds to raise funds for Pieta House.

The Ned Buggy Memorial Run will be run over 4K, and begins at 1pm on Sunday afternoon, with registration beginning at 12.30pm. It is being billed as a 4K 'Run, Walk or Crawl', with people of all abilities urged to turn up and pay tribute to Ned, as well as raising money for a great charity.

As well as the run on Sunday afternoon, there will be a raffle and auction on Sunday night at Behan's Bar, Turra, with some fantastic prizes on offer.

Some of the prizes include gift baskets from Jameson, Tullamore Dew and Teeling Irish whiskey. There will also be beauty baskets as well as some hotel packages.

There is also an auction also for some highly desirable jerseys, including a Barcelona jersey signed by the team, two Liverpool jerseys, one from Robbie Fowler and one from Jamie Carragher, as well as Ireland rugby jerseys signed by the team and an Andrea Pirlo jersey also.
