Happy Saturday everyone. I had an amazing time hanging with the Cork crew & on the run. I'm posting links to the photos I shared over on Facebook for my pics from the run. Feel free to download any that you like.

Here are some more of my pictures. https://www.flickr.com/photos/jimskater/sets/72157651816598203. They're in an album entitled "Ireland - Kids, People & Pets". A good half of these pictures are from the run.

If I've done this right, a couple of the pics from the kids album/link are below:

A line up of cars at Mizen Head--and only the Italian one has its hood open. Or is Gerard dreaming of an RV? :1icon_eek: :)

Ok just to confirm a time for this coming Monday - we will be handing over the cheque to Marion from the Cork Association for Autism at 7.30pm at Actons Hotel in Kinsale . Everyone is welcome ... We can hand over the cheque and have a few photos , and then whoever wants to have a bite to eat, we can do so at the bar there. I will have a final figure tomorrow of what we have raised - just waiting on one more sponsorship card to come in ,
Thanks again,
Sarah

Hi guys. We are pleased to announce that we raised a whopping €2,230 for the Cork Association for Autism as a result of our event , Minis on the Wild Atlantic Way 2015. We handed over the cheque this evening to Marion Courtney from the charity in Actons Hotel in Kinsale, the starting point for our adventure! Well done to all who donated to generously to the cause, through sponsorship cards, the silent auction and raffle. And massive thanks to those who helped organise the event - you all know who you are ! A fantastic result and we will certainly be doing more with the Cork Association for Autism later on this year. Thanks again guys,
Sarah x

Also just another nugget of information - Modern Mini Magazine were in contact with me from the Uk - they have asked me for a write up and pictures from the event to put in their magazine. I have sent them my article and some pictures so keep an eye out for coverage of our event very soon! Great publicity for the club !!
