Sue Redmond completed the #Ironman triathlon in #Sweden last week to raise funds for Foróige! She swam 3.86 kilometres, got on her bike for a 180 kilometre cycle and then commenced a 42.2 kilometre marathon in just 11 hours and 35 minutes. 

What a momentous #achievement and an #inspiration to all of us who set goals for ourselves.

Serendipity strikes! The #SECRETMILLIONAIRE has paid a visit to one of our youth projects, the Ballybane Traveller Youth Project in Co. Galway. Entrepreneur Enda O’Coineen has gifted the project with a donation of €5,000. Not only that, a small group of the young people will be taken to New Zealand in January to take a 10 day sailing course on the Spirit of Adventure Tall Ship. 

We are bowled over by this positive, uplifting news! We'll publish the broadcast date and time as soon as we learn more but it’s expected the show will go out in late September. L-R: Martin McDonagh (former project member), Andrew Byrne (current Project Worker) and Enda O'Coineen (not so secret Secret Millionaire)
