Successful Fun Run/Walk

On Saturday last, a very successful 5K/10K fun run/walk took place in Carrickedmond. This fun run/walk was organised by the Carrickedmond GAA club. A good number of adults and children turned out for this fundraising event with all proceeds going to the local GAA club. Well done to all who finished the course and well done to the organisers who left no stones unturned in assuring that the day’s proceedings ran according to plan.
