On a cold and rainy day in Dublin City an event unfolded which is recognised as one of the largest all female events in the world. Well done Ireland for this and well done to all the ladies who took part in the VHI Women’s Mini Marathon 2015. The atmosphere was amazing and as a photographer there was so much to see and so many people to meet.

I met cheeky chaps, eager husbands, couples, friends, children supporting their mams and running groups, it was great and fair play to all who kept their spirits high while being soaked to the bone. Many ran for charities around the country. Dubliner Maria Mc Cambridge finished in First place at 34.03 closely followed by Ann-Marie Mc Glynn from Tyrone who finished in 34.42 and in third place was Catherina Mc Kiernan from Cavan in at 34.46. Simply amazing.
I think that’s enough out of me, here’s a few photos to prove I was actually there.
