Kudos to Kay and Joe O'Regan

See here for one of the many articles done before & after the recent Cork Marathon regarding Kay and Joe O'Regan (ex-Kinvara) of Enniscorthy [both proud Slaney Olympic club stalwarts] and their finishing the full distance, both 80.  I had the great pleasure of meeting them 5 or 6 years ago out in Connemara after Kay finished that full there.  Wonderful people, both full of the joys of life.

Jim McNamara RIP

It is with great sadness that I note the recent passing of the truly great Jim McNamara, Donore Harriers.  There is much about him on the web which is easily found via your favoured search engine but I will reference an article by Frank McNally, here.  I am fairly sure in saying that Jim visited Athenry twice in recent years, for the National 10KM in 2008 and then again for the National Half in 2012.  I also recall him being in Ballybofey in 2009 at the National Hal
