THREE local butchers made a meaty donation to Louth Palliative Care – after raising €5,000 for the local charity thanks to their participation in the Dublin City Marathon. Father-and-son team Kevin and Conor Lambe and fellow butcher Paddy Woods, who work in Tuite's Butchers at the Bullring, all managed to complete the marathon in under five hours.

'It was the first one for all of us as we wanted to raise funds for Louth Palliative Care because of the amazing work they do,' explains Kevin.

'We had a fantastic response from the customers in all three of the shops and we have to say a massive thank you for the support they showed.'

The trio decided 10 months ago to take part in their first marathon back in January and trained intensively for the 10-month lead up, both before and after work.

The hard work obviously paid off as Kevin completed the 26-mile court in four hours 48 minutes, just 16 minutes behind son Conor who completed it in four hours 32 minutes, and Paddy who completed the marathon in four hours 39 minutes.

'It was the first time taking part of all of us so we didn't know what to expect, we just took our time and thankfully it all went well,' said Kevin, who revealed the men enjoyed a couple of drinks in Dublin after crossing the finish line.
