Women’s Aid – Purple Run 5K

Sandymount Strand, Tuesday 25th September 2018

Walk, Jog, Run the Women's Aid 5K Purple Run.

Have a great night as you walk, jog or run the Women's Aid 5K Purple Run to help women affected by domestic violence.

The 5K event starts in Seán Moore Park just outside Clanna Gael Fontenoy GAA clubhouse (where registration takes place). The route follows the perimeter of the park around in an anti-clockwise direction on the tarmac park path. Just before 1km the route leaves the park and hits the beach. The route follows the beach before ascending Sandymount promenade. It follows the promenade to the end before descending again to the beach just 100m short of the turn point. The route rounds the turn and heads for home following the beach all the way back to the Seán Moore park. Upon re-entering the park, it's a right turn clockwise for the last couple of hundred metres and the welcome sight of the finish gantry where the race started. This route will be timed, marked and marshalled.

Number and T-shirt pick up:

  • 5pm to 7.30pm Monday 24th September at Women's Aid, 5 Wilton Place, Dublin 2.
  • 5pm to 7pm, Tuesday 25th September at Clanna Gael Fontenoy, Ringsend, Dublin 4.

Prizes: While this is very much a fun event raising much needed funds for their work, Women's Aid hope to have a number of small prizes as well as raffle prizes.

Entry price includes free t-shirt and raffle entry. This race is open to all over the age of 15. Children under 15 must be accompanied on the route by an adult.

Guinness PRO14 Leinster vs Connacht Rugby


Last season, Connacht featured in two fascinating duels with Leinster and came out honours even. In this fixture last year at the RDS, Connacht only succumbed to a narrow 21–18 defeat on New Year's Day, before ending Leinster's regular season with 47-10 demolition at the Sportsground in Galway, in what proved to be a fine send off for retiring captain, John Muldoon. However, given that Leinster are reigning champions of both the PRO14 and the European Champions Cup, they will still be heavy favourites against the westerners, who have yet to rack up a win in Dublin in the professional e
