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
