The Kilkenny Nun Run Gathering is not really a run but a chance for people to come out and support three great causes: Pieta House, The Samaritans and St Vincent de Paul.

All you have to do is turn up in your nun’s outfit and enjoy the winter wonderland created on the Parade with snow globe, and amusements.

The Kilkennys band will head the entertainment and there will be two gospel choirs, a marching band, buskers and a number of special guests including 92-year-old saxophone playing Pat Shortis, a Freeman of the City.

Costumes are available from the Kilkenny People office on high Street and can be booked through eventbrite.ie If you are going just email kilkennynunrun@gmail.com

There will be no registrations on the day and sisters have to wear appropriate black shoe wear. Call 0878772688 for more info.
