Create a New Mother’s Day Tradition With These Unmissable Events


Mammies are the best, aren’t they?

With Mother’s Day coming up this weekend, we’ve pulled together some quirky gift ideas. So why not swap the usual gift of flowers and chocolates or perfume for the surprise of something that you can do together, bond over, and always remember.

You never know – you might start a new tradition!

If you and your family are missing your Mum this year, it’s also nice to get out, get together and reminisce – get your siblings and friends on board, and your mum will be close by.

Here are the top five events to celebrate Mothers this year:

Wine On The Line 5K & 10K

When: 31st March 2019
Where: St Bridgets Park, Kildare

What better motivation to run than a bottle of wine on the finish line?
