ST STEPHEN'S DAY RUN: Despite the difficult conditions, there was a fantastic turnout of 100 runners, joggers and walkers at the Annual Tinryland AC Turkey Trot on St Stephens Day in aid of the Tinryland Tidy Towns Committee. Pat Byrne recorded the fastest time on the day of 21 mins 34 seconds while Brian O'Gorman correctly predicted his time to within a second of 29 minutes and as a result was the individual winner of the Turkey Trot.
There was a prizegiving ceremony afterwards in the local school where it was also announced that the event had helped raise over €700 for the local committee. The Tinryland Tidy Towns group would like to thank all who gave such generous donations on the day.
