A memorial run will take place in Co. Mayo today for Castlerea detective Colm Horkan.

The 49-year-old Garda was killed following a shooting in the town in June 2020.

The run, now in its second year, will take place in person for the first time in Colm's hometown of Charlestown.

Participants can also take part virtually with all funds raised going towards the development of a new all-weather floodlit pitch, to be named in Colm's memory.

Gemma Higgins, from East Mayo Athletics Club says the support for last year's virtual run was overwhelming with over 4,000 people taking part.
