Back To Race List

On 8th February 2020 we are hosting a charity run for Spina Bifida & Hydrocephalus Ireland and Lily’s Garden.


This run is to commemorate Lily Daly who died at the age of 7.5 due to sudden complications and onset of acute Hydrocephalus. Lily was one of a kind.  She was a ball of positive energy bouncing around with love for everyone. Her enthusiasm and passion was infectious along with her unbridled imagination.


She packed a lifetime into her precious short 7.5 characterful and colourful years leaving her mark on everyone she came in contact with, especially her school friends at Gaelscoil Inse Chor, it truly was her home from home.


Even though she was only 7 and a half she showed an empathy that was beyond her years, caring for others. She is missed beyond measure every moment of every day, her cheeky smile, her determined nature, her joyful outlook on life.


To mark Lily’s memory and to celebrate her life, the incredible teachers, parents and pupils at her school are aiming to create an amazing outdoor classroom by way of a sensory outdoor garden – a way for other kids to explore, imagine and belong, just as Lily did. We can see her now bursting with the excitement at the thought of this. She would love the idea of an outdoor classroom in her name. As a family, it would mean the world to us knowing that Lily’s legacy will live on.


Funds raised will go toward the outdoor classroom in Gaelscoil Inse Chor and Spina Bifida and hydrocephalus Ireland. SBHI
