Kieran Murray – Donegal

Run For Life

Kieran Murray is from Ramelton, Donegal and received his kidney transplant in 2013.  This is his 5th time to compete and this summer he will be in the 30-39 years age category in the following events:

  • 5K Mini-Marathon
  • Pentanque Singles
  • Golf
  • Track & Field 1500m
  • Track & Field 4x100m Relay
  • Track & Field 800m

‘I am married with 3 beautiful daughters and have had 2 kidney transplants.  After my most recent transplant, I took up running in which I love every minute of it.  I also play golf, enjoy meeting up with friends and socialising.

‘It improves you physically and mentally.  Help meet new friends and to challenge yourself into trying new things and to do things you never thought possible.  Being part of Transplant Team Ireland is like inheriting a new family.’

‘This summer I am looking forward to ‘meeting old friends, make new friends, create awareness of the importance of organ donation and to enjoy the experience.’
