Last Saturday, the 12th January, saw over 230 people take part in the local Operation Transformation Walk on the iconic East Pier and along the Dun Laoghaire coast. Organised by Dun Laoghaire Rathdown Sports Partnership this event was part of a National initiative to promote the message that walking is a fun way for people to get active as part of a healthier lifestyle.
The sun shone down last Saturday, 6th October 2018, as Dun Laoghaire Rathdown Sports Partnership and a range of local agencies hosted the 10th Core Credit Union dlr Community 5K in Kilbogget Park, Ballybrack. This annual event takes place during the Counties ‘Festival of Inclusion’ and is widely recognised as being all inclusive and bringing together families, friends and the entire community.
To celebrate the 10th year, fun activities were on hand to add to the fun with Ultimate Frisbee, BarMonkey, reaction challenge and target games testing both the young and old. At 2pm, An Cathaoirleach, Cllr Ossian Smyth set off the starter gun and over 900 participants, many donning super hero costumes, walked, jogged and ran the two laps of Kilbogget park.
