Your participation in our events has meant that this year we could make a donation of €1100.00 to Doolin Search and Rescue  and a contribution to the John Joe Scanlon Memorial Weekend.

Our Medal for this event commemorates Ellen Hanley – the Colleen Bawn, She is reputed to have been of outstanding beauty and in addition, was of a bright and friendly disposition. Unfortunately she eloped and married a scoundrel - John Scanlan. He soon tired of his young bride and with his servant Stephen Sullivan murdered her. She was tied up and thrown into the Shannon. Her body was recovered 6 weeks later. Scanlan and Sullivan were arrested, tried and sentenced to death by hanging.
The Colleen Bawn is buried in Burrane Grayeyard.near Killimer Co. Clare
