New parkrun starting in Ennis

Fresh on the heels of the new parkrun in Tralee, it has just been announced that a new parkrun will be starting in Ennis in Co.Clare.

That brings the total number of 5k parkruns in Munster now to six. In the order of which they started, they are....

Cork...Macroom...18th May 2013
Cork...Clonakilty...1st Feb 2014
Cork...Bere Island...30th Aug 2014
Clare...Clarisford...25th Oct 2014
Kerry...Tralee...24th Jan 2015
Clare...Ennis...14th Mar 2015

The Ennis 5k parkrun will start in Lee's Road at 9:30am on the 14th of March.  If anyone is interested in being a volunteer, then call Cathy on 0656865454 or email

They will be running an information evening on the 18th February in the West County Hotel at 8.15pm. People will be able to hear the experiences from the volunteers at Clarisford Park parkrun, in Killaloe.

Where next? Will we see more starting in Co.Cork in 2015?

I believe there are discussions ongoing with Cork City Council regarding using the long-awaited Tramore Park for a parkrun in town but have no idea of the timescale.
