New dad James O’Brien rang the 5 k in celebration of his new baby daughter Amelia.

“This event has been a great success and grows every year, none of it would be possible without the army of volunteers coming from local clubs and organizations. Professional services of Gardai, Civil Defense and Red Cross have been invaluable in supporting this event,” said organiser Cllr Suzanne Doyle.

“It is great to see the combined efforts of the town working successfully together.”
