What A Day For Our Club
Great Results
Deidre Aherne Wins Her First Ever Race
Midleton AC Win Female and Male in Cloyne
Ann Geary 2nd Overall in Carrigaline 5mile

 Cloyne 4Km

What once again was a fantastic day for the club. We saw some absolutely brilliant racing. Once again Frank O'Brien won the Cloyne 4km  whilst it give me huge pleasure to announce that Deidre Aherne won her first race ever when today she took 1st Lady overall in Cloyne.
Deidre who has been displaying great running in training has now turned the hard work into the reality of winning. Eileen Leahy also had a fine run in coming 2nd Lady.

Our first man home was Kevin Smith who displayed some fantastic finishing speed in holding off the opposition.

 Carrigaline 5
We also had some great running in Carrigaline 5Mile with Ann Geary coming 2nd Lady overall and lots of other individual winners.
 Neilus Aherne came 2nd O/60 with a fantastic finish which was worth going all the way just to see.
Other ladies who got prizes were Sheila Buckley 2nd O/35, Margaret Jones 2nd O/45 and
Joan McCarthy 2nd O/60.

Spoiled With Choice

Carrigaline 5Mile

A great race organised by Eagle AC who have been great supporters of our own race. Traditionally this was the big one before Ballycotton and a good tester to see where one is at.

Cloyne 4 Km

Always a very well organised event with lots of families running.

Clarenbridge Report

This is how the day began

Atrocious conditions--course 99% deep mud. Neilus 4th O/60 Edwin 1st home for Midleton AC . Then Neilus, Dereck and Edmond.
 Midleton AC 16th team  (in Ireland) two places ahead of East Cork AC
This was worse than the Tipperary gig we ran two years ago. Edmond

Well done guys ye did us proud as always Danny

Jannsen 6km

We had a fine crew out here on Sunday morning despite the snow and sleet. Marie Gillman came 2nd O/59 and Joan Mc Carthy came 1st O/60 and Donie O'Connell 3rd O/65. As always it was a very well organised event.
Special congrats to Eoin White who did his first 6Km after just joining the C25K group in January. Well done Eoin.
Apologies for lack of photo's but the weather was very bad.


Clarenbridge Cross Country

Best of luck to our crew going to Clarenbridge for the All Ireland's on Sunday next. We have four members running Neilus Aherne, Edmond O'Sullivan, Edwin Cashman and Derek Aherne and we wish them all well. Some are relatively new to cross country and others are already champions but no doubt they will all do our club proud.
They sad tale is that our cross country pioneer Sally Drennan cannot make it due to injury but no doubt will be back in action soon.
