The 42nd Annual Wellie Race in Castlecomer on New Year's Day was a huge success, with great crowds turning out for a brilliant series of outdoor activities.

The emphasis was on safety, and participants and spectators rose to the challenge with sterling assistance from the Garda Siochána, Order of Malta, stewards, and volunteers. The changed format meant registration and the race start was from Chatsworth Street, the wise decision to let the walkers go as early as they wished was a visible social distancing success.    

For all the pictures and full report from the brilliant day out, see this week's Kilkenny People!
