A group of men raised more than £3,500 for a Stevenage special school when they ran the Dublin Marathon.
They all drink in the Marquis of Lorne pub and raised the money for Greenside School’s Fairy Godmothers Committee.
Runner Andy O’Keeffe, 49, said: “It was the most amazing feeling crossing the finish line. Every mile I did I said to myself that’s another mile for the kids.”
Andy was joined by his nephew James O’Keeffe, Gary Bodenham, James Lucy and Mark O’Connell on Monday.
The committee will use the money to buy hard-to-replace toys and play equipment for the disabled kids at the school.
