Carrigaline Girl Eadaoin Completes Marathon For Fota

With Fota Wildlife Park desperately needing funds to survive during the most recent lockdown, Carrigaline girl Éadaoin O’Brien took it upon herself to complete a marathon to fundraise for Fota.


Éadaoin, who is 8 years old, is in first class at Gaelscoil Charraig Uí Leighin and is the daughter of Alan and Michelle O’Brien.


Éadaoin completed the marathon between jogging and walking in only 7 days at the beginning of April and in doing so, gained both local and national headlines, even featuring on radio station Newstalk.


All told, Éadaoin’s efforts raised €3,000 for Fota, a wonderful achievement.

Well done Éadaoin.
