John and Helene go great guns in Dublin

A Douglas couple have completed the fourth largest marathon in Europe.

John and Helene Quayle were among 22,000 men and women who took to the streets for the 26.2 mile route through the city of Dublin.

They completed the course in a time of three hours, 51 minutes and 59 seconds, raising funds for Fragile X syndrome, which their four year-old nephew has.

It's the most commonly inherited cause of learning disablity and can cause difficulties with learning, emotions, and behavioural problems.
