This year marked the tenth anniversary of the much-loved event Relay for Life event, which returned to Letterkenny last evening for the first time following the Covid 19 lockdown restrictions and pandemic.
Chairperson Robert O'Connor says that there were nerves returning for the first time after three years but he was delighted with the turn out.
The number of teams are less than they have been over the past ten years but Mr O'Connor said that people feel there continues to be a lot of apprehension following the pandemic especially for cancer survivors.
Everyone was pleasantly surprised to see the number of care givers and survivors who did come out to support the event.
