    Taking off on the Runway for Pieta House!

    A great crowd turned out this morning for the 4th annual Run/Walk 5K at Donegal Airport, the most scenic airport in the world.

    This years the proceeds went to Pieta House. It was great to see so many turn out to support the charity. Many of the Rosses Athletic Group took part.

    The walkers and runners registered at the check in desk before taking off on the runway after 11pm and got a nice morning for it.

    Pauline Sweeney, Manager of the airport along with her team were there to ensure everything went according to plan.

    I took a stroll afterwards in the beautiful Carrickfinn beach and had it all to myself, such a fabulous party of our County.

    Well done to everyone who took part to raise funds for Pieta House.
