A Cork fire fighter who is running 32 Marathon across Ireland's 32 counties in just 16 days is coming to Donegal next month.

'The Running Fireman' Alex O'Shea will bring his 32 Marathon, 32 counties in 16 days Challenge to Donegal on Wednesday, September 5.

Alex will have completed Marathon No. 9 earlier in the day in Fermanagh before travelling to Bundoran.

Alex will be joined on his challenge by Tralee native Garda Ollie O'Sullivan who will not only crew for Alex but will take on his own personal challenge to run 50km of the 84km a day every day of the challenge.

Ahead of the challenge, Alex said: "A big thanks to everyone in Donegal for supporting us with Marathon No 10. We are looking forward to taking our amazing challenge to Bundoran. I would encourage everyone to come along and run even part of the distance."

Once Marathon No. 10 is completed Alex will immediately head on to Tyrone where he will rest overnight before embarking on Marathon No. 11 and No. 12 the following day in Omagh and Derry.

All proceeds will go towards supporting the life changing work of the Irish Guide Dogs for the Blind.
