The 10km Ballyduff Boxing Club Fun Run took runners down the Ferry Road and around the parish before a nice descent to Your Man's Bar where publican John Walsh laid on the refreshments.

"We were delighted with it," Ballyduff Boxing Club secretary and coach Ger O'Grady said. "We had a good turnout and one of the things most people commented on was how lovely and scenic it was which we were delighted to hear."
