A total of €575 was raised in Duncannon for Goal on New Year's Day during the annual Gaol Mile.

One of the organisers, Brian Stafford, said the event had been a great success.

'We hold our walk on New Year's Day because a lot of the people who own holiday homes in Duncannon come down for New Year's but are at home for Christmas. We had between 70 and 80 walkers on the day so we were very happy with the turnout.

'For once it was a lovely fine, bright day and it started the year off on a nice positive note,' said Brian.
