World event to take place in Cahir

Cahir News is delighted to share that the World Masters Mountain Running Championships 2021 will be held in Cahir, this will be a huge boost to the area.

Cllr Andy Moloney received the conformation today from the organising committee, he said that it was welcome news and that a lot of groundwork had been done and a huge application was considered and has succeeded.

If the HQ is based in Cahir there will be a festival built around the event which will consist of a parade of countries and traditional music in the pubs and a showcasing of all that's good in Ireland.

There could be up to 1000 participants from all over the world and there won't be a bed space for miles.

The group also intent to organise a Celtic Challenge for October 2020. This would be a mini version of the event in 2021 with participants coming from England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. This will be a great opportunity to test and promote the main event.

Cllr Moloney wished the organisers the very best in their endeavours and said that the town will need to row in behind the competition and be ready to welcome an influx of tourists to the town for the event.
