Couch 2 5K for Pieta House

A final head-count of just over 200 local men, women and children welcomed the Operation Transformation bandwagon when it rolled into Castleisland on Thursday evening, January 16th.

An impromptu Couch 2-5K session was held to mark the visit and the proceeds of the evening went to Pieta House: Suicide and Self Harm Crisis Centre which is soon to open a branch in Castleisland.

On this clip you’ll see: Mary Fleming, chairperson of Kerry IFA Farm Families outline her role in the event; Kerry IFA Chairman, Seán Brosnan endorse the movement and the motivation behind it; Operation Transformation national finalist, Richard Harnett explains his leadership links with the programme and on-screen OT panelist, Dr. Eddie Murphy urges his audience to seek out and invite along neighbours they feel may be lonely and in need of company.

The event was filmed in the magnificent settings of An Riocht Athletic Club grounds.
