Weekend Round Up

Galway City Harriers were triumphant in both the mens & womens races with Matt Bidwell & Sinead Brody winning in times of 33.43 & 39.46 respectively.

Galway 5k Series - Leg 4 - Claregalway

After the thunder, lightning & stormy showers died down early in the evening, leg four of this years series was held in a wet Claregalway on Tuesday last with over 570 runners braving the elements for another PB attempt.

Collette Touhy of Mayo AC was third woman home.

Roundstone Bay 8K 2014

A crowd of almost 200 runners took to the start line for the RNLI Roundstone Bay 8K in Connemara on Saturday. The rain held off for the duration of the race and a small breeze along the course ensured none of the participants overheated as they wove along the scenic coastal roads that are a feature of the event.

Weekend Round Up

There were some great times posted yesterday in the River Moy Half Marathon in Ballina with a handful of PB's in the process.

Assumpta's Euro Success

Forget bearded ladies and no Irish entry in the Eurovision final over the weekend, Athenry AC were making a somewhat more successful competetive attempt at the World Drug Free Powerlifting Federation European Championship in Belfast.  Assumpta Feeney yet again powered her way to top spot in her weight category and now adds the title of 'Euopean Champion' to her achievements.  There is talk that Floyd has been dispatched to the shed to work on an extension to the trophy cabinet, and rightly so as we feel that there is plenty more to come from the Athenry AC powerhouse.
