Kilworth native Kieran Walsh recently undertook a marathon challenge in aid of Cork Penny Dinners.

Kieran who now lives in Silversprings, Cork said that this is only his second ever marathon since running the Dublin City Marathon in 2017.

“While the lockdown was on, I wanted to do something for charity and a marathon is on a lot of people’s bucket lists. It took me four years, but I did it,” Kieran said.
