If you are looking for an evening of fitness and fun, then, Kilmurry N.S. may well hold the answer. Cordal’s cherished, local national school is hosting its now annual 5k Fun Run on Friday, April 17th at 7pm.
Registration will take place at Cordal Community Centre from 6pm on the evening of the event. All monies raised will go to funding school resources and sporting activities.
“Kilmurry N.S. has a proud tradition of sporting excellence and athletics is no exception. Athletics is a very popular activity within the school and children compete in various competitions throughout the school year.
The school has some very accomplished performers in its midst and they will be hoping to showcase their talent in this event,” said principal and Cordal native, Thérése Kearney.
“Shortly after last year’s successful 5km run, the school was awarded an Active School Flag. This flag is awarded by The Department of Education and Skills and recognises schools that work to achieve a physically educated and physically active school with the community.
The flag was raised by past pupil and Kerry footballer, Philip O’Connor on the day of the Easter holidays. There was a fantastic turnout of parents, neighbours and past pupils at the event and it is hoped that the people of Cordal and surrounding parishes will join us and support our fundraising venture on Friday 17th.,” said Ms. Kearney.
The race route will begin at the Old Kilmurry School and go through the townlands of: Kilmurry; Kilberehert, Glenlarhan; Ballyplymoth and Ardmona and the finishing line will be at Cordal Community Centre – where refreshments will be served after the race and all are welcome.
