NOTICE – Kilkenny parkrun cancelled Saturday 21st October 2017

Unfortunately we have had to cancel the parkrun that would have taken place this Saturday, 21st October 2017 due to storm damage, Kilkenny Castle Park will remain closed until further notice. Kilkenny OPW are working hard all week to clear damage caused by Ophelia. We wish them well with the process.

However, don't forget that your Barcode  Id can be used at all other parkrun events, so you have an ideal opportunity to indulge in a bit of parkrun tourism!

Check out other events to participate in http://www.parkrun.ie/events/events/ and #DFYB ! Also check with any parkrun before travelling to confirm they are running.

Hopefully everything will be back to normal for Saturday 28th parkrun!

Regards from all at Kilkenny parkrun
