A crowd, estimated at up to 2,000 people, many in fantastic costumes, with lots of children and parents, walked from Superquinn to the Gordon Place car park in the Zombie Walk to celebrate Halloween in Clonmel.
The event went very well and the public and participants seemed very happy. The weather stayed fine and it turned out to be a great fun and free community event, something good for morale and the town.
