Crocus Run 2019: The annual 5k/2.5k Run/Walk in aid of Crocus was held on March 17th in Monaghan Town and about 400 men, women and children took part. There was a heavy rain/hailstone shower prior to the start but then the day remained dry and everyone enjoyed the event. The mens 5k was won by Alex Eskander Turki followed by Conor Maguire and Liam Brady. The Ladies section was won by Donna Mohan followed by Maeve Coyle and Helen McCrystal. The 2.5k was won by Ella Connolly. However the main purpose of the evnt was to raise funds for Crocus and Raymond Aughey thanked everyone for taking part and spoke of the great services being offered by Crocus, free of charge, for people diagnosed with cancer and their families. Mary Callery, Chairperson of Crocus explained its work and thanked all involved in the event especially, Raymond, Frank McEneaney, the organisers and stewards and all who contributed a donation to Crocus. Barry Evans, Monaghan Town runners who organised the run, presented €4,825 to Mary. The Squealing Pig also presented her with €2,360, proceeds of some events organised in the Squealing Pig over the Christmas period. Raymond together with Patricia Lee and Paul Bond presented €2500 to SOSAD, which was accepted on behalf of Sosad by Geraldine McAree. This money was raised by the three who completed a 5k Run every day in January. Well done to all involved. All photo show a selection of those taken and are in no particular order.
