Chrissy Run: Once again the generosity of people was demonstrated by the huge turn-out of lorries, tractors, cars, vans, motorbike and other vehicles to raise funds to assist Chrissy McGonnell in his efforts to get medical treatment in Russia for his MS. The sun shone and, despite the social distancing, there was a carnival atmosphere and what a brilliant sight as the vehicles travelled from McAnenly’s at Moybridge on their way to Monaghan. Two cars with strangers in them were caught somewhere in the middle of the cavalcade, like a number of others, and they pulled up along beside me and asked, rather sharply, ‘what was going on’ and when I said it was a Run to raise money so that a young man could go to Russia for medical treatment, their attitude immediately changed and they smiled and said ‘oh, that’s different’ and one man said, ‘he must be a very popular young man, there is such a crowd’ and he moved on. Well done to the organisers and to the huge numbers involved and we wish every blessing on Chrissy and hope sincerely that the treatment will be successful. The space I have here is just not spacious enough to include every participant but I have included as many as possible to give you an idea of the cavalcade if you did not actually see it with your own eyes. The Lorries are on this page and the tractors on the next page HERE. To me there were almost 400 vehicles passed by.
