Mary Hickey, the 65-year-old Wicklow woman running the coast of Ireland for the RNLI, is expected in Helvick Head Lifeboat Station in County Waterford at around 1pm today.
She left Youghal at 10am this morning, and Youghal RNLI took her across the bay to Ferrypoint where she got on the N25.

Mary will be turning off the N25 at Fleming’s pub in Grange, and running through Old Parish and down Seaview to Helvick Head Lifeboat Station. The distance from Flemings to Helvick is 10 miles. All welcome to run along, or join on the way.
So far Mary has raised over €25,000 for the RNLI. She will be presented with a piece of Criostal na Rinne by master craftsman Eamon Terry in Helvick Lifeboat Station.
Mary @RNLILapoftheMap will run from Ferrypoint to Grange, turning off the N25 at Flemings (expected at Flemings shortly after 1100). She will then run through Old Parish to An Rinn and down to @HelvickHeadRNLI. All welcome to join the run, I think we have 4 confirmed so far? https://t.co/hEjKwxqaN8
