Larne man Shortie’s marathon effort in Big Apple

Northern Ireland Fire and Rescue Service had a presence at this year’s New York Marathon, as Larne man Shortie Goldie competed to raise money for the Fire Fighter’s Charity.

Last year, Shortie’s brother-in-law Martin Campbell - who is NIFRS Northern Crew Commander, based in Carnlough - was diagnosed with endocarditis and had to undergo open heart surgery.

Following the surgery, Martin attended the Fire Fighter’s Charity Jubilee House in Cumbria for rehabilitation, which proved invaluable to his return to work and full health.
