The Sheep’s Head Easter Run 2019 is a 10k race which offers wonderful views over Dunmanus Bay and the beautiful Sheep’s Head peninsula
Athletes can experience the breathtaking views over Dunmanus Bay and the Sheep’s Head countryside as the route takes them up past Rusnacahara Church, on through the townlands of Kealties and Brahalish, back onto the main road and finishes at ‘Arundels by the Pier‘.
