Re. Marathon, marathon-relay, half marathon and 6 mile run on 5th May 2013 in and around Limerick city.
If participants could fundraise on behalf of the Cleft Lip and Palate Association of Ireland your efforts can go a long way towards assisting
(1) the funding, purchase, installation and fit out of the children’s and adolescents’ waiting room in the National Maxillofacial Centre in St James’s Hospital in Dublin, and
(2) the provision of maternity packs and emergency bottle supplies.
We would be most grateful for your efforts towards raising funds for these worthy causes!
You can email me, Anne Gilsenan (Treasurer), at firstname.lastname@example.org, and I will get back in touch with you to organise t-shirts and sponsorship cards etc.

The death has occurred of Professor John Scott of the School of Biochemistry and Immunology, Trinity College, Dublin. Professor Scott contributed greatly throughout his distinguished career towards efforts to identify the cause(s) of orofacial clefts and neural tube defects (NTDs).
The Cleft Lip and Palate Association of Ireland extends its deepest sympathy to the family of Professor Scott.
The genetics and biochemistry of orofacial clefts was a particular area of interest of Professor Scott’s. As part of an international collaborative research team, Professor Scott, together with other Irish researchers, provided data for a set of Irish affected families that confirmed previously unidentified genes associated with cleft lip in children. The results of the study were published in the leading international science journal, Nature Genetics, in May 2010. The Cleft Lip and Palate Association of Ireland was instrumental in the gathering of the large sample base that made this research possible.
The funeral mass will be held at 11.30am on Wednesday 2nd January, in the Carmelite Church, Whitefriar Street, Dublin. Full details, including a wonderful tribute by his daughter Rachel, available on rip.ie.
May he rest in peace.
