They’re two women who come rain or shine make the effort every year at the Foyle Hospice Walk/Run.

Kathleen Doherty and Mary McKenna enter into the spirit of things fashioning different types of hats made by Mary.

“We just enjoy the craic,” said Kathleen. “Every year it’s something different and people always remark on the outfits.”

As this year’s event on June 7 gets closer the Foyle Hospice is encouraging women to get dressed up for the event.

Kathleen and Mary already have their outfit planned but Mary is staying tight lipped.

“You’ll have to wait until the day and see the outfits,” she laughed.

Pretty in pink.
