Just to clear up the prizes from our bubblegum race event.
we Still have a voucher for Peter Kernan and Joan Stapelton.
we also have recolites for Tom and Gavan
Just to let you know that we cant wait to give you free stuff here.
|gearoid towey||Aug 21, 12:47pm||Great to hear from you Aisling.|
I hope you will be out on the hills soon. I will arrange the jacket return. My number is 086 3997278, give me a bell when you are back home and I will collect them.
Hope you are mending well,
|Justin Rea||Aug 21, 10:01am||Hope you get home soon Aisling. I'm sure the trauma of four days spent between A&E and surgery far outweighed that of the incident! Sorry to hear of the extended tour of the facilities of the health service.|
This accident shows the importance of having a good plan in place for getting injured runners off the mountain. Having an experienced team like Gearoid and Wayne in place made that happen like clockwork. The fire engine was probably a bit much though ;-)
|Wayne Jenkins||Aug 21, 8:07am||Thats great news Aisling.|
Glad to hear you will make a full recovery. It was a very serious wound & I'd like to echo previous comments & commend you on your bravery.
Also fair play to all the helpers involved. We managed to gel together like a well oiled machine having you treated, insulated & packed up for immediate evacuation when the paramedics & stretcher arrived. So well done everyone.
Wishing you quick recovery.
|Caroline Reid||Aug 20, 8:49pm||Aisling,|
Delighted to hear you are on the mend - best wishes for a speedy recovery :)
John, End of league tops can be collected next Wednesday night at the Hellfire. If you can't make, please get a friend to collect it. Prizes cannot be stored until the winter league!
|Tadhg Crowley||Aug 20, 8:34pm||Aisling,|
Very glad to read your posting. You deserve a special price from IMRA for courage, resiliance & fortitude.
Best wishes for a speedy recovery,
|Ken Cowley||Aug 20, 5:08pm||Aisling,|
Wow that's great that there was nothing broken. Obviously it was an extremely bad cut, but fingers crossed you'll make a quick and full recovery. The way you coped with your predicament on the night was very impressive by the way, you were by far the calmest person at the scene!
|Aisling Harrison||Aug 20, 4:30pm||Hi All,|
Very Big thanks to everyone who assisted me getting off the mountain on Wed nite especially Ken, Jack, Donal & Wayne from Mountain Rescue. The update is that I'm still in Tallaght until Sunday my knee is just v badly cut but thankfully no damage to the bone. I have a wide range of jackets and tops that folks kindly gave me to keep warm and will arrange for them to be at the next race meet and if not claimed there will drop to Basecamp. I was really enjoying the race until I fell and hope to be back running soon:)
Many thanks to everyone again!
|Jeff Fitzsimons||Aug 20, 1:46pm||That is indeed a smashing picture Gilly, question is can anyone identify the silhouetted runners for a blankety blank cheque book and pen?|
|John Ahern||Aug 20, 1:37pm||Hi Caroline,|
I didnt make it along on Weds to collect the end of league prize. Any chance it'll still be poss to collect it at the start of the winter league?, or is there any other way to pick it up?
|Gillesa O'Shea||Aug 19, 6:00pm||I agree Mick, the photos are great. Especially this one|
|gearoid towey||Aug 19, 1:50pm||Last news is that Aisling was being treated for her injury in Tallaght. On the mountain she was in good spirits and according to those who assisted her, was remarkably calm and cool given the situation.|
Further news to follow.
|Mick Hanney||Aug 19, 1:36pm||Terrific set of photos (again). Some contenders in there for a yearbook.|
|Tadhg Crowley||Aug 19, 1:08pm||Very concerned for Aisling. It looked a nasty injury. Please could we know about Aisling's well being? Is she in hospital?|
|Niamh Garvey||Aug 19, 12:19pm||Hi Gearoid,|

|susan seager||Aug 17, 10:46pm||I have a lift organised. Thanks|
|susan seager||Aug 17, 8:06pm||If anyone has as spare seat in their car going from town or near Celbridge, I'd very much appreciate a lift to the race. Please text me on 087 9332128. Thanks|
|Eoin Keith||Aug 17, 3:36pm||Parking for the Bubblegum Club Tibradden Basecamp race differs slightly from previous editions.|
The Merry Ploughboy Pub can't be used for carpooling due to space restrictions and they have requested that we do not use their carpark before the race.
They have kindly arranged for us to park in the Ballyboden Wanderers GAA Club carpark before the race so we can carpool from there. There will be some parking in the Pine Forest Car Park but we would ask single car occupants to please pool from the GAA Club.
About 200m past the Merry Ploughboy Pub towards Pine Forest, there is a RIGHT turn onto Mt. Venus Road. Continue on Mt. Venus Road for approx 500m and on the LEFT is the GAA Club.
|Gearoid Towey||Aug 17, 10:37am||massive thank you to everyone who has volunteered so far.|
would those who have, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org so I can send out details of what where and when?
Thanks a mill,
|Mary McD||Aug 16, 6:01pm||Hi|

|Brigitte Morrogh||Aug 16, 12:48pm||Hello Gearoid, I have put my name down as a helper. This is my first time as a volunteer, so I do not know how many people you need. |
Please let me know if I am needed and what time to arrive.
|Gearoid Towey||Aug 16, 10:12am||HI Catherine..... more the merrier!!!! Thanks a million.|
See you out there as early as you can make it
|catherine halpin||Aug 15, 9:32pm||have you enough volunteers already? if you need another one, i am around and not running?|
|gearoid towey||Aug 13, 6:02pm||cheers warren,|

|Warren Swords||Aug 13, 5:03pm||I can volunteer for this event. Not running.|

|Gearoid Towey||Aug 4, 12:28pm||Hi Everyone,|
I am putting out a needy call for a Laptop operator for the Bubblegum Club Charity race on the 18th.
Thanks in advance,
|Gearoid Towey||Jul 9, 3:54pm||HI Everyone,|
just when you thought you had survived yet another Leinster league unscathed.......
We are organising this race on Wednesday the 18th of August to raise funds for The Bubblegum Club which is a small charity dedicated to improving the lives of disadvantaged and sick children all over Ireland.
A small charity like that would benefit greatly from the funds we could collect from a fun night of hill running on Tibradden and so all proceeds will go to the Bubblegum Club. The end of the Leinster league and the week after the Mountain Rescue Benefit race means some of you might have an idle wednesday evening with twitchy legs.......well not anymore!
Check out their website on www.bubblegumclub.ie to see what it is they do.
Basecamp are sponsoring the race and prizes and the prizegiving will be at the Merry Ploughboy afterwards.
A map of the route will follow on the site shortly
i will be needing some volunteers for the night, both running and non running and would be delighted if some people came forward
Hope to see you there for a good night of hill running
