Having travelled to Two Mile Boris, Co Tipperary on Sunday morning for the Munster Intermediate Cross Country Championships Sineád O'Driscoll (Keavney) had a brilliant run to claim the Munster Intermediate Title. In what can only be described as a classic finish Sinead showed her strength and intelligence in coming from behind to claim victory in the final stages of the race. Having paced herself well during the race she outsprinted her rival to win the race in great style. She also let the Cork Team home to win another Gold. Well done Sineád you have done yourself and our club proud once again. Danny

Clonakilty 



We had one runner in action in Clonakilty this morning. Margaret Jones was running her 19th marathon. In conditions that were anything but favourable to running and marathon running in particular things did not go quite to plan but were not far off either when Margaret ran a great time of 3.54 despite the unfavourable conditions. Well done once again Margaret you did yourself and your club proud once again and roll on number twenty in London next year.
Ian Kohler also had a fine run in the Clonakilty 10km where fighting the same conditions as Margaret but not for as long Ian came home in the fine time of 60.17. There were over seven hundred runners in this race.
