POIGNANT MOMENTS
To mark the occasion 100 balloons were released after the parade finished to honour all who have gone to their eternal reward in the community.
As the runners were under starters orders a flock of pigeons were also released into the blue skies.


FAST EDDIE INDUCTED
Race Personality Eddie Brennan enjoyed the hospitality and unique transportation in Martin Brennan’s pony and trap, and the visit to meet and greet patients and staff at Castlecomer District Hospital.
His only regret was the Major Regrets and he sported the special facial war paint which is part and parcel of the induction process into that motley crew.


BUGGY’S COURTESY EXECUTIVE SERVICE
Denis Buggy via his luxury coach provided refreshments and aperitifs which were most welcome on a chilly day to all our senior citizens and also to those on the reviewing stand.
