Lyall Guiney has shared his report on his brilliant run in Connemara recently. This can also be found on his blog Race the Blue Line.
Peter Delmer [co-founder of Athenry AC (Senior)] got married to the lovely Dympna last Friday!
Long life and much happiness to both.

Both are excellent events and deserve all local athletes' support. See attached for posters for both races.
In typical Connemara weather, where after 4 hours I still couldn’t figure out which way the wind was blowing (and it was blowing), there were some very impressive times posted across the three distances on offer in Sunday’s Connemarathon.
Race result located here.
Congrats to Corrib AC on the first running of their Killannin 8KM last Saturday afternoon.
Full result is here.
It's turning into a busy few weeks for Athenry members on the international stage with many of our members hitting the skies to take part in some of the biggest races worldwide.
This Sunday, 06th April, Philp Magnier & George Livanos will be lining up alongside nearly 50,000 other participants in France for the Marathon de Paris.
Another great turnout by Athenry in New Inn for their 3rd annual 5k.
It was a cracking day out there & the heat caught a few of us by surprise but there were still a few PB's produced. Gearoid Rohan, Ruth Ann Sheahan, Jane Ann Healy & Ronan McCarthy all improved on their 5k times.
Tiernan Burke produced nearly a 2 minute PB with a 20.25 & now has Frank worriedly looking over his shoulder. Bragging rights in the Burke household could be hotly contested come the 5k series I think.
Full results is now attached.
The official results of the 10m County Championships, which formed part of the Craughwell 10m, have now been released & give Athenry a huge haul of medals. Congrats to all.
