This weekend promises to be full of messy fun as children, parents and staff take part in a colour party!

Kilgobnet National School Parents Association are organising the 5km Family Colour Splash Run on Sunday (June 26) and everyone is welcome to come and join.

The circular 5km route will complete the final kilometres required for the children to reach the 42km goal set by the school, as part of the Health Promotion initiative.

Along the route, participants will be sprayed with colour at the various stations, along with a few other messy surprises to add to the fun!

Donations can be made on the day and there'll be refreshments, music, a raffle and a cake sale.

“The Colour Splash 5km, which is organised by our Parents Association, is an important fundraising event for our school," Marguerite Casey, Chairperson of Kilgobnet NS Parents Association, said.

"Everyone, from the school community and beyond, has a great time for a good cause.”

Maura O’Connor, Principal at the school, said that they're all excited about the event.

“It’s great to see the fun run going ahead again this year after a three year void due to the pandemic. We’re all looking forward to a great day!”

For anyone looking to get involved they said just come along from 1.30pm on the day and join in.

"Donations will be gratefully received."

Killarney cyclist Sam Bolger (18) has been selected as one of four riders for the Belgian Project – one of the most prestigious stepping stones for Irish riders with ambitions to turn professional.

Northern Ireland-based Belgian Danny Blondell is the man behind the project.

For the last 15 years Blondell selects between four and six Irish riders and sends them to Belgium where they stay with local families and contest pro and semi-pro races.

As a race commentator Blondell is well placed to decide who is deserving of inclusion in the project.

Over the first six months of the year he makes decisions while attending early season races.

Those lucky enough to get selected go to live and race in Belgium for the second six months of the year.

Bolger, from Lewis Road, was selected after winning the junior race in the Cycling Ireland National Road Series in Mayo in March and the Orwell Stage Race in County Wicklow in June.

“He is delighted, it is a very big deal,” his father Paul told the Killarney Advertiser.

“He has had a very good year and the wins in Mayo and Wicklow secured the Belgium Project.”

Bolger will head to Belgium in late July and after to the Junior Tour of Ireland which takes place in County Clare between July 12 and 17.
