Colleagues remember Eoin with Charity Run
CJ Sheeran, Ireland’s largest timber pallet company with a facility in Ballinrobe is organising a charity run in aid of the Mayo Roscommon Hospice in memory of their dear friend and colleague, Eoin Malone, who sadly passed away on April 2nd last after a short illness.
Eoin, who was a native of Westport but lived in The Neale, was Maintenance Manager and Project Engineer at CJ Sheeran Ballinrobe for over 20 years. “He kept our production lines going like a watch. His talented hands can be seen over all ofour factory”, says Fergal Moran, Business Development Director at CJ Sheeran. “Eoin was a keen runner and had completed the Dublin City Marathon last October. He was also an avid fundraiser and was always collecting money for various charities around the locality. The Mayo Roscommon Hospice supported Eoin during his illness and we wanted to give something back in in Eoin’s memory so came up with the concept of Run4Eoin with all monies raised bling to the Mayo Roscommon Hospice.
CEO of Mayo Roscommon Hospice Foundation Martina Jennings said “We want to extend our gratitude to everyone in CJ Sheeran who have come together to remember their friend and colleague Eoin in this very special way. The funds raised will go directly to providing palliative care services in the community which is so important to the patients and families in need of such care. We are also in the middle of building our Roscommon Hospice which will be completed next year and the €6m it will cost to construct will all come from fundraised income just like the Mayo Hospice in Castlebar. We would not be able to do what we do without events like the Run4Eoin and the people who give of their time to organise such events. We are so grateful to everyone who support them”.
