The September Blarney & District Person of the Month is Jacinta Yelverton.
“I would like to nominate Jacinta Yelverton as person of the month. This wonderful woman runs Happy Feet walking and running group in Blarney. Every year without fail she organises a couch to 5K program for people who want to learn how to run. Hours of work behind the scenes goes into this. She never misses a Tuesday or Thursday night at Happy Feet and is always there to support everyone. She runs marathons every year yet still finds time to help and support her running friends from far and near. Not only does she run Happy Feet she also knows every child in Blarney from her years working in Blarney community school and always has a kind word and a smile for each of them. She adores her job and loves all her children and co workers. Jacinta is a mother, wife, childcare provider, friend and runner but most importantly she gives 100% to everything she does and does it with a smile. This woman has touched many lives without ever knowing it and definitely deserves to be person of the month as many local people would agree.”
