The fourth annual Ballydehob 10k run will take place on Sunday, March 16, 2014, St Patrick’s weekend, in the West Cork village of Ballydehob.

New to 2014 is a 3km run for children and ‘come-and-try-it’ participants who want to run but are not yet ready for the 10km distance. The accurately measured 10km event offers chip timing, with the option to enter as a runner or a walker. Last year’s winner Cathal O’Donnabhain, the current Irish Duathlon champion, who competes for both Cork Tri Club and St Finbarr’s Athletic Club, set a new course record of 33.26 along the undulating route.

The beautiful scenic route takes runners and walkers along small rural roads, sheltered coastline and historic locations. Starting at the edge of the village of Ballydehob, the route passes alongside the beautiful harbour of Rossbrin with its 500 year old castle and small boats, and finishes on a downhill stretch passing beneath the route of the old Schull and Skibbereen railway and towards the picturesque 12 arch bridge across the estuary at Ballydehob. The first 100 across the line earn themselves one of the Ballydehob 10k t-shirts, whilst prizes are awarded in the different age group categories.

The event is a fundraiser for St Matthias National School, Ballydehob.

Walkers will set off at 10.45am and the runners at 11am, whilst the 3km run starts at 11.15. Check out www.ballydehob10k.com for event details and online registration.

The Cast of Harold Pinter’s ‘No Man’s Land’ are on their way to the All-Ireland finals, having won 26 awards, including five best of Festivals, at the Amateur Drama League of Ireland annual three act festivals. The play ‘No Man’s Land, by Harold Pinter, the Nobel Prize Winning Author is directed by Jennifer Williams.

One last opportunity to view this multi award winning play at Skibbereen Town Hall, on Saturday 14th of April, before the finals.

Having met by chance in a pub, two aging writers continue a long night of drinking and reminiscing in a stately London home. As the night wears on, their conversation wanders through memories long forgotten or invented. Is their encounter real or a delusion? Are they strangers or do they share a past history? When unexpected guests intrude upon an increasingly surreal evening, the atmosphere quickly changes from friendly to threatening, and the encounter becomes a game of survival.

Tickets may be purchased at the door or in advance by emailing schulldramagroup@gmail.com
