This year’s Leprechaun Chase was another great success – despite the bitterly cold weather. Over 2,000 people crammed into Blackrock Park and much fun and merriment was had by all, including the much chased-after Leprechauns themselves! We wish to sincerely thank all those who participated, in particular the kids and parents who braved the elements but also Johnny Sheehan and his merry band of Leprechauns. In total we raised €3066 for Blackrock Hospice and Laura Lynn charities. We are also most grateful to those Blackrock businesses who supported the event financially. The occasion is now firmly established in the Blackrock Events’ Calendar. However, as always, the burden of organisation falls on too few people and future running of the event and its quality will depend on more trusty citizens putting their hands to the pump. Finally, to the two main organisers Angela Kelly and Catherine Curran – a huge thank you for all the effort you put in to ensure this year’s great success.
