Tri Kilkenny and Bruce Springsteen

These last few weeks in Kilkenny have been hectic! Particularly the last weekend in July when the Boss rolled into town!! There was a great atmosphere throughout the marble city during Saturday as many locals came out to support the great triathletes taking part in TriGrandPrix! The setting was amazing, a swim up the river Nore and into the Castle grounds to collect their bikes for a spin out the countryside, then back for few laps of the Castle before crossing the finish line just outside the Castle itself.  The sun was shining on the city (we’ll not mention the monsoon showers that happened every so often!) and everyone seemed in great spirits!! For some pictures of the TriGrandPrix check out our Facebook page. That night we were treated to the first of two show-stopping performances by Bruce Springsteen as he finished his Wrecking Ball Tour. It will definitely be a weekend that will live long in the memory of all those in attendance. Fingers crossed he will return to Kilkenny in the future for more sell-out shows!
