PHOTO GALLERY: 'Walk for Moggie' at Punchestown

Fundraiser in memory of Ballymore Eustace man

There was a massive turnout from the communities of Ballymore Eustace and Blessington for events over the weekend in memory of the late Moggy Murray.

More than 500 adults walked the course at Punchestown on Saturday evening, all happy to support his family in their grief.

The discovery last August, after a week of searching, of the 35 year old’s body in the grounds of the Old Woollen Mill shocked the community.

Ballymore Eustace has experienced the deaths of three men in recent years, all in their 30s, and sadly, all lost to suicide.
Next Wednesday will see an event in conjunction with Pieta House at the Bandhall, from 7pm.

“The generosity and support for the late Moggie was overwhelming,” said Rose B O'Donoghue, PRO for the organising committee. “We had over 40 raffle prizes with more spot prizes on the day. His family have a difficult time ahead but appreciate the good wishes and support witnessed on Saturday last.”
