Married couple Joe and Kay O’Regan, both 80 years old, received a wonderful reception as they held hands when they crossed the finish line of Cork City Marathon today.
Having been part of an RTE “Would you believe” documentary last week, the couple crossed the finish line with little sign of ware.
To a rapturous applause, the couple from Ennicorthy, Co Wexford, crossed the finishing line in an amazing time of 5hrs, 25mins and 24 seconds.
Kay and Joe both turned 80 this year – Joe on February 24 and Kay on March 18 and they have been married for 57 years.
Having run marathons a combined 142 marathons around the world, the likeable couple kissed and declared this was definitely her last marathon.
