Nearly 3,000 runners from all over Ireland and the world gathered at Killarney Racecourse on Saturday for an event which proved to be a runaway success.

FINISHED: All smiles for this group of runners after finishing Run Killarney last Saturday.

GREAT DAY OUT: A great day at Run Killarney for these racers last Saturday proudly wearing their medals at the finish line at The Gleneagle Hotel.

.

It was all part of the first Run Killarney half-marathon and 10k since 2019.

Both the half marathon and 10k races started at the new venue of Killarney Racecourse and ended at The Gleneagle Hotel, where participants were able to celebrate with friends and family. There was a new route this year that took runners along the picturesque Muckross Road, with beautiful views of Lough Leane and Muckross House and Gardens, before turning around at Five Mile Bridge for the half marathon and at Muckross House for the 10k.

“We were delighted to be back in Killarney for an amazing day, and thank the runners for their support over the past couple of years as we put the race back on the road for 2021,"​​​​ Race Director, Oliver Kirwan, said.

"It’s fantastic to see this event is still so popular with local people and visitors alike. We are privileged to be able to run this event in such a spectacular setting. Well done to everyone who took part, and to all our volunteers and the Killarney community who helped make this happen at relatively short notice.”

WINNERS

Winners of the half marathon were Vivian Foley in a time of 1 hour 12 minutes and Hannah Steeds in a time of 1 hour 20 minutes.

Winners of the 10k were Gavin O'Rourke in 31 minutes 28 seconds and Ann McPhail in 40 minutes and 39 seconds, while Ger Daly came first in the 10k Wheelchair race category in a time of 1 hour and 3 minutes.

"Run Killarney extend their congratulations to everyone who took part; to those returning to the race after a two year absence, and a heartfelt welcome to those competing for the first time. We hope to see everyone back in 2022!"

What do roses, wrens, King Puck, fairies and Santa Claus have in common? Well, all now feature in a new children’s book co-written by a mother and son.

The new illustrated poetry collection for children, ‘A Very Kerry Year’, by Killorglin mother and son, Jacinta and Conor Browne, has been published just in time for Christmas.

And all proceeds will be donated to Comfort for Chemo, an organisation whose mission it is to build and equip a chemotherapy unit for the people of Kerry.

The charity is close to the young author’s heart as Conor himself was undergoing cancer treatment while writing this book.

With original poetry by the mother and son, the book also has another separate family connection as the talented illustrators are local artists, father-daughter duo Con and Rochelle Lucey, with each page awash with colour and beautiful drawings.

“I know first-hand how important it is to have a comfortable environment while receiving chemotherapy,” Conor said.

‘A Very Kerry Year’ is currently available for €12 from The Crystal Cave and the Reeks District Tourist Office in Killorglin and will soon be available in many more outlets throughout the county.
