Kilmurry National School 2016 Fun Run
On behalf of all at Kilmurry National School, we would like to thank all who supported the annual 5K Fun-Run held in Cordal on Friday evening.
Thanks to all the stewards, time-keepers, people who made tea/coffee and whose who made sandwiches etc. for their help.
It is gratifying to see the amount of support and assistance offered to organise such an event and demonstrates the close connection between the school and community.
A pleasant summer evening set the scene for the run. Along with the serious runner, past, present and future pupils of all ages came along to do their bit and to give the course a go.
A children’s disco was held in the community centre afterwards.
All proceeds of the 5K are used to support the school swimming lessons programme.
