There was no such thing as a relaxed Sunday morning lie-in in Kilmoyley last weekend as the village was bright-eyed and bushy tailed as locals prepared to tackle the 'Kilmolyey Miler' run.

The run, which offered participants either a 5km or a 10km route to choose from, enjoyed its seventh outing last Sunday and as usual, served as a fundraiser for the local Tidy Towns group as well.

Results wise, it was another hugely impressive outing from Kerry runner Billy Stack as he stormed home to victory in the 5k  in a time of 18:26 and he was followed closely by Adrian O Connor (19:19) and Daniel O Brien (19:44).

In the female section of the 5k, Jackie O Carroll was the first woman home, in a time of 21:53 and she was followed in second and third place by Ann McGlynn (23:49) and Hannah McCarthy (24:40).

In the 10k run, Donal Leahy was the first male home in 34:58 while Robert Purcell (36:43) and John Culloty (41:25) were close behind.

In the female section of the 10k, Elaine O' Keeffe (45:03) was the first home and she was closely followed by Margaret Carlin (46:19) and Helen Feehan (48:09) who were the second and third females home on the day.
