Great Limerick Run 2024

We would like to extend a huge thank you to all those who volunteered on behalf of Na Piarsaigh for the Great Limerick Run on the May Bank Holiday Weekend. We had 20 volunteers, each raising €60 per person, and in turn a total of €1,200.00 for Na Piarsaigh. Special mention to Seoirse Laffan who once again assembled a great team. We look forward to seeing ye all back next year for what promises to be another brilliant weekend for the city and our north side community.
