This weekend Emma O Donoghue is hoping to win the Oscar for Best Screenplay for the Film Room. The Black Valley, which is home to Emma O Donoghues ancestors and some of the most beautiful and remote locations in Kerry and is part of the Quest Killarney March adventure race route.

The Black Valley was the last place to be connected to the main electricity network in Ireland but it’s well and truly in the limelight now. Ireland will celebrate Emma’s success over this weekend and the following weekend the achievement of 1200 people , as they complete the two stunning routes which are suitable for all levels of fitness.

Quest Killarney March is a chance for people to experience the remote beauty of the Black Valley as competitors run, kayak and cycle their way through Killarney National Park and along the Kerry way. We are backing Emma to bring the Oscar back to the Black Valley.
