Former Kilkenny person of The Year, Mr Ian Wilson, founder of the Carlow-Kilkenny Homecare Team with Norah Flynn of The Kilkenny People getting ready for the Guinness world record attempt at the largest gathering of nuns ever on Saturday, December 7 in the rose Garden ofKilkenny Castle. ‘Nuns’ can just turn up - no need to run - and support three great charities - Pieta House, The Samaritans and St Vincent de Paul. Call 0878772688. Only a limited number of costumes left for the fun event of the year. And remember, you must have black shoes or you won’t be counted.
The Kilkenny Nun Run is not really a run but a chance for peope, to come out and support three great causes.
All you have to do is turn up in your nun’s outfit and enjoy the winter wonderland created on the Parade by the city traders with snow globe, and amusements. The Kilkennys will head the musical entertainement and there will be two gospel choirs, a marching band and a number of special guests including 92-year-old saxaphone 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
