New Ross Standard - - PICTURES -

MORE THAN 300 peo­ple, aged from four to 70, par­tic­i­pated in the Tin­tern Trails run re­cently.

De­spite the wet start to the morn­ing the run­ners and walk­ers turned out, en­joy­ing 5km and 8km routes through the his­toric and stun­ningly beau­ti­ful Tin­tern Trails. Or­gan­ised by Gusser­ane GAA Club to raise money for the Coiste na nÓg sec­tion, the event was a great suc­cess. One of the or­gan­is­ers Pat Walsh said: ‘It was more of a so­cial event. Fam­i­lies came along and had a great day. It started off foggy but it cleared up nicely af­ter a wet morn­ing.’

All of the run­ners and walk­ers en­joyed the ex­pertly run trails event and the teas, cof­fees, scones and buns which were in plen­ti­ful sup­ply af­ter­wards. ‘Every­one en­joyed com­ing back and talk­ing about it. This is the sec­ond Tin­tern Trails event we’ve had this year and we had one last year also. It’s all for Gusser­ane Coiste na nÓg.’

Pat thanked Jim Cado­gan for the use of his field, Coillte and the OPW for the use of grounds and the stew­ards and ladies for bak­ing and serv­ing teas and cof­fees.
