Following on from the success of the last two years, the Ardfield Rathbarry Playground Group is getting ready for this year’s Ardfield Road Run on October 12, 2014. The run is the main annual fundraiser for the playground which opened last December.  The run consists of both a 5Km and 10Km and all levels of fitness are welcome – as the logo goes ‘Walk It, Run It, Race It’. This year sees a new more attractive 10K route being introduced. Both are very enjoyable courses that start and finish in Ardfield village and take in spectacular views from Inchydoney to the Galley Head with the last 3km of both courses being the same, adding greatly to the occasion.

Registration will take place at the Mountain House, Ardfield on Saturday, October 11, from 5pm til 7pm and on the day from 11am. The race begins at 12.30pm. The entry fee is €10 for the 5K and €15 for the 10K. Post race refreshments will be served in the local GAA complex. Further details can be found on the Ardfield Rathbarry Playground Group Facebook page.

Dúchas Clonakilty's first lecture for the Autumn promises to be of huge interest to all: Emerging from the Shadow of Tom Crean – The Parish Centre, Clonakilty, Thursday September 28th 8.30pm.

Lecture by Aileen Crean O’Brien & Bill Sheppard

In May 2016, Kerry man Tom Crean, along with Ernest Shackleton and four other crew members, landed the James Caird lifeboat on the rocky isle of South Georgia. The navigation of that small boat, across 1500 km through icy winds and towering seas, is regarded as the greatest ever feat of navigation. They then trekked across the forbidding and inhospitable mountains and glaciers of South Georgia to seek help for the rest of their crew, who were left behind on Elephant Island after their ship, the Endurance, was crushed by the Antarctic ice.

One hundred years later, Crean’s grandaughter, Aileen Crean O’Brien, set off with her sons and partner to follow in her grandfather’s footsteps. Join Aileen and Bill to hear of their adventures (and misadventures) on the Southern Ocean and the island of South Georgia.
