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.
