AS PART of the Dungloe Women’s Weekend, a 5k fun run and walk is being held this evening (Good Friday), March 29, in aid of Baby Lucy.

The event is raising funds for eight-month old Lucy Gallagher, the daughter of Carleen and Gary Gallagher from Maghery, who is still at Our Lady’s Hospital for Sick Children in Crumlin.


Lucy was born with a rare genetic skin condition called Harlequin Ichthyosis. She is the only one with the condition in Ireland and there are less than 100 word-wide.

Registration begins at McDevitt’s Filling Station, Mill Road, at 5.30pm, with the race beginning at 6.30pm sharp.

Refreshments will be served afterwards at Ionad Teampaill Chróine. Entry fee is €5 per person or €10 for a family entry.

Go along and join the fun for a good cause.

THE world’s stage will come to Dungloe tonight (Saturday) for a first class performance of Riverdance as the finale...

Ryan Connors gives us an insight into the Dungloe dressing room.

The final takes place on July 28 in the Waterside Theatre in Derry.
