He is a familiar figure to all who participate in the hugely popular Longford parkrun which takes place every weekend at The Mall, Albert Reynolds Peace Park. 

Stephen completed his 100th parkrun this year under the stewardship of Longford parkrun’s exceptional Director Kevin Kane. 

Stephen trains every week in athletics at St Christopher’s with Michelle Murray.

He also trains around Killoe with his family and never misses a Saturday parkrun in the Mall. Indeed, Stephen is particularly proud of his local GAA club, Killoe Emmet Og, who were crowned Longford senior football champions in 2019 and back in 2012 and 2014 his brother Joe had the honouring of captaining Killoe to Sean Connolly Cup glory. 

Stephen went to London in January 2019 to complete his first European parkrun. 

Stephen has also been  involved in Special Olympic swimming over the last number of years and he enjoyed a number of successes in January 2019.

A talented athlete and swimmer, congratulations to Stephen McCormack, our Sports Ability Award winner.
