Congrats to Craughwell AC on a superb event today.
A good smattering of Athenry AC athletes competed successfully, which saw Laura Shaughnessy (DSD, ex-Loughrea AC) first person home. Has this ever happened before in a local road race, a lady being the first home? Congratulations to this excellent local athlete on this pretty unique achievement!
Congrat to South Galway AC on a superb 8KM race and organisation yesterday, Sunday 12 February. The full result can be obtained here and attached.
Mary Kealy was the W50 winner. Conditions were bitterly cold, windy but dry over a challenging course. It idid'nt stp quite a number of people running close to their POBs for the 8KM double loops to the west/south of town of Gort.
A good turnout from Athenry AC graced the roads around Coldwood today, Sunday 29 January! The weather was not very kind but it did not stop over 200 people from toeing the start line outside the school.
Fergal Walsh was third in an excellent 22:05, followed closely by Dave Meehan, who dipped under 23 for the 4M course, the latter shouted on by his three girls near Pump House Cross.
This years race was sponsored by Hygeia and we are very grateful for their support. Race Director Jim Leahy and his committee organised yet another very successful event. Now in its 15th year The Fields of Athenry 10km attracted 1031 athletes who took on the single loop of the 10km route which started at the train station and finished under the famous Arch. Weather conditions were perfect as we experienced the calm after storm Barbara! A headwind was reported for the first 4km after which the athletes experienced gentler and more pleasant weather as the sun appeared and it remained dry.
The Athenry AC woman did the club proud in Corofin last Sunday, 6 November, with a 1/2/3 result.
Deirdre Brophy followed up her sub-40 in Carna with a pretty much identical run over the new 8KM course. Yvonne Fehilly kept her teammate honest with a superb near-32 (PB?) run. Bernie Mulryan made a welcome re-appearance, taking the W50 prize, though she was also third woman home on the road. Fiona Doughan was first F40 and 5th woman home, which Enda Munnelly was blessed amongst all those fast AAC women breaking 35!
