Weekend News

We had two members taking part in the London Marathon yesterday with Mary Kealy first home in a brilliant time of 3:21 & Pat Forde finishing in 3:38.

Closer to home our newest piece of kit got its first run out at the Under 9-12s Galway T&F meet in Dangan. With the unsettled weather our new marquee tent was put to good use & I'm sure we'll see more of it in the coming months.

Two Halves of Manchester

Now for a report with a difference. How else to report on a marathon than in two halves….by two separate people! Mary Rohan & Esther Leahy give a great account of their experience in the Manchester Relay Marathon last weekend.
