Dozens of motorcycle riders took to the roads today for the first-ever Brian O’Callaghan-Westropp Memorial Run, which was staged to remember the “force of nature” behind the charity Blood Bikes East. Brian, who was the organisation's secretary and financial manager, sadly passed away in the 2018 Greek wildfires, just four days after his wedding to Zoe Holohan. Zoe - who works for the Sunday World newspaper - saw off the more than 60 riders before they set off from Ashbourne in Co Meath to Clonmel in Co Tipperary. Blood Bikes East (BBE), a volunteer courier service of elite bikers that transports urgent medical supplies - has operated free of charge since 2012.
