Results of a Race [whether posted in Events or not]
A large amount of work has gone into these Provisional results and we are very thankful to one of the Mullins (Tuam AC) clan for capturing the vast majority of the finishers on a camera phone. Mark Davis has been able to convert the resulting 3pg file to AVI and thereafter onto Google Video and for doing the really hard work of converting this information into hard finishing times.

2008 Galway May 5KM Series - Craughwell 080513
Another great night out in Tuam last Tuesday as the second in the Galway May 5km Series for 2008 took place. Local organiser Brendan Monaghan and his dedicated crew of Tuam AC volunteers put on a great show and the race went off very well. At the very front of the field our very own Brian O'Connor crossed the line first and he had 263 enthusiastic souls trailing in his wake.

NB. Carney Lissadell 10k Race Result Below
Rumours have been perculating through to Athenry AC Central for the past few months that one of our top 10k'ers Brian O'Connor was "...training like a trojan..." . Other words like "madman" and "lunatic" were bandied about as well. We were told that he was preparing well for the National 10k in Athenry in April and was focused on running a good race there.
