Dublin City Marathon 2015

Dublin City Marathon

October 26th 2015

Dublin Marathon took place on the Bank Holiday Monday, the 26th of October 2015. Ordinarily Dublin has life and vibrancy bursting from its epicentre. It’s constantly filled with business and creativity and everyone feels a sense of home there, even if they are from outside the Pale. However I had never seen it like this before. Safe to say that the 26th was a SAVAGE day…in a good way!

I can easily say this was one of my favourite shoots that I’ve ever been on. TPJ loves the joy and hard work and each photo below shows just that!

Dublin was awash with brilliant, talented people who had all trained hard themselves for this day for no personal financial reward and had the support of their friends and family the whole way along the roads. The  nooks and crannies of the 42 kilometre stretch of inner city South and North side were filled with the prideful sweat of their loved ones.

I won’t say much more about the day. Photos speak a thousand words right?

Please feel free to share, copy or paste any of the below photos. If you know anyone who was in them, please tell them and congratulate them on a job well done.

People gave their hearts to the city on Monday and it rewarded them with the feeling they received at the finish line. If you did it for Charity even more fair play to you!

They are all on Facebook too here: please save the site with your friends if you can:


Congrats to all the organisers and event managers and helpers, you did a super job and the day went off spectacularly.

Congrats to all the runners and suppoerters that lined the streets. If I didn’t catch you in a shot, I apologise…It wasn’t for the want of trying.

Enjoy the snaps,
