Brianna Lynch Memorial Cup

Late Brianna Lynch on her horse
19 Feb 2023

The Brianna Lynch Memorial cup is back once again for the 3rd year of the race!

Brianna sadly passed away in 2019 at the age of 9 due to SUDEP. Through her life, Brianna had a number of needs, including epilepsy, but she faced them all with a smile – and touched the lives of so many within her local community and further afield with her infectious smile and zest for life – despite all the challenges she faced.

Since her untimely passing, Brianna’s family have worked to raise funds for Epilepsy Ireland in her name – and to raise awareness of SUDEP amongst the epilepsy community. Brianna’s mother Arabella wrote about the loss of her child as part of our activities for SUDEP Action Day 2020 – you can read this piece by visiting the ‘SUDEP’ section of our website.

With strong connections to the local point to point community, her family decided to establish the Brianna Lynch Memorial cup in 2020 – you can read our report on this inaugural running by visiting the ‘News’ section of our website.

If you’re in the area, why not join Brianna’s family and local community in remembering this wonderful young girl by attending the running! The event will see young riders from across the local community taking part in the point to point, vying to walk away with the Brianna Lynch Memorial Cup!

Further details of the running are below and we would like to thank the Lynch family and their local community for the continued support for Epilepsy Ireland in Brianna’s name.
