Congratulations: Leyna and Gordon Rodgers


This in from the lovely Rena Rowe who sez:

Hi Peter,
Just sending you a photo of Leyna, with medal and her son Gordon. Gordon completed the Marathon mile.

Just an update on Leyna`s Marathon last Monday. In dreadful windy and rainy conditions Leyna was delighted to finish her marathon walk in a time of 5hrs and 45 mins. It was Leynas 10th Marathon, her last one being ten years ago in New York, so a brilliant achievement. On behalf of the Senior Citizens Group we would like to thank everyone who supported Leyna both from the local business sector and every individual both in the locality and surrounding areas. . We also wish to thank the Ballyboughal Community Council, the Tidy Towns Committee, Ballyboughal .net, The Gun Clay Target Club in Lispopple for their help and continued support its very very much appreciated. Also we wish to thank the pupils and staff of Ballyboughal National School for their donation from a `Wear a Jersey day`. Well done to everyone involved your efforts are very much appreciated.

Thanks again Peter.

Very well done to all who supported and much congrats Leyna and Gordon. Very proud of you.
