It is here once again – this is the 8th Annual Ned Run. Remember you can register on Thursday Eve from 7pm-9pm at the complex or on Friday from 5pm. Set Off time is 7.30pm. Don’t forget there is a shorter walk this year – the “village stroll” which is up to the Terraces and back. Lets all try and get out and support this event, with the proceeds going to Monaghan Hospice, Drumkill Day Care Centre and The Club for the Elderly. Its also a great way to catch up with people you maybe haven’t seen in a while and with a BBQ and Music in the bar afterwards – how could you resist!! Look forward to seeing you all there.
