The Maroon and White were well to the fore in beautiful Annaghdown last night with both the men and women making their mark at the top of their respective fields.
The under 9,10 and 11 competitions are run in pairs with the pair with the best joint score wins. The under 12 competitions are individual competitions.
Overall 22 pairs from Athenry AC qualified for Connacht’s unfortunately due to other commitments and holidays not all were able to take part. In total in pairs we got 4 gold 5 silver 5 bronze. Relays Two gold one silver one bronze.
A special thank you to coaches Martin Hynes and Sinead Healey.
The remaining Connacht Finals are in Dangan next weekend.

No, not Michael Douglas and Karl Malden (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Streets_of_San_Francisco) but Conor Dolan and his adventures in the _Plate to Plate 5KM_ ran earlier this week.
Sixth in a time of 17:24.
He was every so slightly disappointed with the time but as he says in his short report below, it was his 9th hard race in 10 weeks. Conor was coming off an excellent set of runs in the Galway 5KM series, (almost?) all of them sub-17!
