The annual Remembrance Run 5K this Sunday at Phoenix Park commemorates legendary Kerry sports writer and journalist Con Houlihan.
The 5K run or walk is held each year for participants to celebrate the lives of loved ones who have passed away – with an installed virtual wall of remembrance where people can share the names and memories of their loved ones along with music.
“I believe we all have a primal need/desire to be remembered with love, even in the smallest things,” said Remembrance Run 5K founder Frank Greally.
“I think it’s a fitting tribute to Con Houlihan – one of our great Irish writers.”
Mr Houlilan, a native of Castleisland, Co. Kerry, whose career spanned six decades, died on August 4, 2012 aged 86.
His many friends and former colleagues gathered at The Lower Deck Pub in Portobello, Dublin, where they shared music and stories to celebrate his 10th anniversary.
