ONE’s Band of Sisters are hitting the road again

ONE’s Band of Sisters are hitting the road again to take part in the Vhi Women’s Mini Marathon on June 2nd 2024 in Dublin.

In September last, 15 women aged between their early 30s up to late 60s, ‘rucked’ (walking in combats and boots, carrying backpacks) from Áras An Uachtarain in the Phoenix Park to McKee Barracks to attend the ONE Annual Convention in their ‘Rucking it to Convention event, raising over €3,000.

All proceeds will go to the ONE to continue charitable aims to support ALL Defence Force Veterans. Donations can be made via Revolut on Audra 0852182620 or the link

Check out their Facebook page ONE Band of Sisters and if you know or are aware of any individuals/women’s groups who would like to join them, please contact Audra.

ONE – Oglaigh Náisiúnta na hÉireann (or the Organisation of National Ex-Service Personnel) – is a registered Irish charity offering housing and support for Defence Forces’ veterans, with the ultimate goal of accessing permanent accommodation, improving mental health, and preventing future homelessness.

ONE’s services are available to ALL veterans of the Defence Forces, while also facilitating homeless veterans from other countries living in Ireland, from time to time. ONE’s mission is to “No Irish Veteran Left Behind”.

ONE’s primary objective is to support the needs of Irish veterans by the provision of accommodation to homeless and other veterans in need of such domestic accommodation in its Veterans’ Homes and the provision of other advice and support to veterans, in particular Mental Health advice, through its nationwide network of Branches and Veterans’ Support Centres.
