Huge Crowds Take Part In Fun Run For Seán Cox


Share this article


Community spirit was well and truly alive in Dunboyne this morning, as huge crowds turned out for a fundraiser for Seán Cox.

The 3km event around the grounds of St. Peter’s GAA Club was to raise funds for the 53 year olds recovery.

The father of three was assaulted outside Anfield before Liverpool's Champions League game against Roma last April and is currently in the National Rehabilitation Centre in Dun Laoghaire.

St. Peter's GAA Club chairman Fergus McNulty says that Seán has a long road ahead of him:

"He's getting the right care and he's taking some small steps. They are very small but I think they are moving in the right direction. It's going to be a very long process so it's a bit early to say what the longer term prognosis will be."

A Support Seán GoFundMe page has raised more than €150,000 to date, with Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp donating €5000 himself.

Irish internationals Seamus Coleman and David Meyler have also supported the fund. 

Fergus McNulty has said that today's fun run is one of a number of planned fundraisers:

"We'll be running a series of events over the rest of this year and into next year, including All Ireland champions Dublin are coming out to Navan on the 16th of December to play a Meath side."

"That'll be another good event which hopefully will boost the campaign."
