Moire O'Sullivan is a well known figure on the Irish mountain running circuit. Twice winner of Ireland's Mountain Running Championship, she has won the Irish 24 hour Rogaine Championships with Andrew McCarthy as well as the two day Mourne Mountain Marathon mixed elite class with John McEnri. In 2008, she secured the IMRA fifty kilometre Irish Mountain Navigational Challenge Series title, the first time a female has won the event outright.
In 2009, Moire became the first person ever to complete the Wicklow Round, a 100 kilometre circuit of the Wicklow Mountains to be completed within 24 hours.
When not running, Moire works for an international aid organisation. As part of her work, she has travelled to some of the world's poorest areas and worst conflict zones. Moire lived in Kenya for seven years, working with mentally handicapped children in Nairobi's slums. She currently lives in Cambodia.
