pERSONAL fitness trainer Kevin Cogley raised a whopping €1,400 for Wexford Marinewatch with a 12-hour non-stop 'trainathon' on Wexford Quays.

Kevin said he had a target of €1,000 in mind, so he was delighted when he saw that figure surpassed.

'A lot of people came along to support me, it was brilliant,' said Kevin. He said among the groups and clubs supporting him on the day were the CBS Boxing Club, Kilmore Athletic Club, the Bohs soccer club, Clonard Ladies Football Club and Wexford Triathlon Club, as well as a number of gardai from Enniscorthy. The weekend 'trainathon' started at 9 a.m. and finished at 9 p.m., leaving Kevin feeling 'bombed out'. 'It was very enjoyable, but I could hardly think by the end of it,' he said, thanking Aaron Donovan for his help and DJ Conor McGuire for playing music for 12 hours without repeating any song.
