“The Village Run” with Ballylinan GAA

The community of Ballylinan and the surrounding areas have come together to raise funds to provide a purpose built Walking Track on the grounds of Ballylinan GAA Club. The walking track will provide a safe and welcoming environment for both young and old to exercise and enjoy the outdoors.  “The Village Run” (Half Marathon, 10k and 5k) is part of a bigger program of events.

To raise these funds over 100 local people have come together as actors, crew and support teams to act in, produce and shoot clips from 7 well-known movies for the Ballylinan OsKaRs 2024.  The actors will be coached and mentored by Kevin Rowe Events to ensure a top class OsKaRs event. The movies will be shot in Ballylinan and surrounding areas giving it a real local spin.

Roll out the Red Carpet – a cinematic extravaganza awaits.

Put on your runners and join us for “The Village Run”
