Malcolm ‘Running’ for the Dail 30/01/16

| January 30, 2016

Malcolm Byrne is perhaps the fittest candidate for the Dail. He has completed 23 marathons, many for charity, as well as lots of other distance runs including the Wexford half marathon, the Oylegate half marathon and the Enniscorthy strawberry marathon.

A former Chief Executive of the National Community Games organisation, Malcolm believes that sport is hugely important not just for physical health but also for mental wellbeing.

He pointed out,

“Exercise can play a huge role in positive mental health. We are lucky that we have many great running clubs in Co. Wexford but you don’t need to even be in a club to just stick on a pair of runners and go out and hit the roads. Running has certainly helped prepare me for the physical and mental exertions of a marathon election campaign!”
