Sinead Kane is a marathon runner who, despite her blindness, has recently completed the World Marathon Challenge. Never heard of it? That's seven marathons, on seven continents, in seven days...

We don't know about you but we got tired just writing that!

Following her victorious adventure, Sinead Kane went to Kinsale Community School to spread a little inspiration.
