Byrne and O'Rourke win Bray cancer support garden of Ireland 7k run
The Bray Cancer Support Garden of Ireland 7k run and family walk took place in glorious sunshine on Saturday evening.
Over 500 runners, joggers & walkers of all ages and abilities took part in the 2nd annual Garden of Ireland 7K Run & 3K Family Walk in Powerscourt Estate, Enniskerry yesterday.
The sun certainly helped in attracting such large numbers to one of Irelands most popular tourist destination’s for the scenic 7K run and a 3K family walk.
Competition was fierce with winner Mick Byrne from Rathdrum taking the 1st spot in the 7K run. He was closely followed by Finbarr Kirwan from Bray Runners in 2nd place and Wayne Drea from Real Fitness in 3rd place.
In the women’s category, 1st home was Grace O’Rourke from DSD with Sheelagh Jones from Enniskerry in 2nd place and Patricia Mahoney from Bray in 3rd place.

Race director Conor O’Leary says ‘We were delighted with the turnout today, the weather was on our side. The post race BBQ and music by Bray Gospel Choir really helped create a great fun atmosphere. We would like to thank everyone who participated today as 100% of the proceeds will go to Bray Cancer Support Centre’s support services in Wicklow & South Dublin. Today’s event could not have taken place without the support of Wicklow Civil Defence, the Gardai & our sponsors CPI Foam LTD, The Wicklow Times, Amphibian King, DK Orthotics, Windsor Motors & Greenstar , we would like to say a big thank you to them.’
