Ballycotton 10 weekend 2006

As myself and the family gazed at the various rare species trotting around Foto Island Wildlife Park in Cork, my oldest daughter exclaims "Look Dad, that guy is wearing the same hat as you."

Sure enough, my Athenry 10k maroon hat was been sported by another tourist in the park, with his family in tow the same as myself. Didn't recognise the wearer. Went over to chat "are you running Ballycotton etc". Turned out it was Michael Rooney from Coldwood, a member of Athenry AC.
