Message from West Waterford AC (Facebook page): 

Well done to each and everyone of today's finishers at the John Treacy Dungarvan 10.
A huge thank you to all our volunteers who spent months, days, weeks and today preparing for this event.Its a massive total voluntary effort by a huge number of people.
As like many events painstakingly organised by a club such as ours by all volunteers, sometimes not all goes to plan and today we were meet with a situation where our own club chip timing system gave us technical problems.
We will be working throughout the night to manually get out a set of results and the category and team results will follow as soon as we can possible have them .All prize winners will have their prizes posted to them during the week.
We thank you for your participation today and we hope you had an enjoyable day in Dungarvan and we certainly hope to have you back with us next year.
Thanks to everyone for your patience and understanding.

Well done to all our members, too numerous to mention individually, who ran the Dungarvan 10 mile race today.  Conditions could have been a lot worse.  There was a light drizzle at the start, which luckily didn't turn to heavy rain.  There was some wind in parts, but it was behind at parts also.  A lot of runners actually found it to be quite warm today, and anyone dressed for yesterday's weather may have suffered.

Official results won't be out for probably a few days, as the chip system broke down.  Only the top 10 men and top 6 women's prizes were announced.  Apparently, the organisers plan to go through video footage of the race finish, so it could be days before they compile full results, and team and category prizes.  Update (Mon): Category prizes now out - see below

In the meantime, it would be great if you would email the blog at with your photos, race report, including your time, whether you were pleased or disappointed, and don't be shy to let us know if you had a PB today.  In the meantime, I am working from memory, please do correct me if I get anyone's time wrong.  All times are approximate.

Some such PBs - Francis Maunsell clocking 63:20 (ish); Fionan OhAodain who continues in his PB streak, knocking over 5 minutes off his PB; Derek Ahern who had a fine run clocking 69:05; Paul Fleming, despite a stitch from mile 6 still PBed with a time of 80:13; Ger O'Regan posted a PB of 70:32; and Richard Power had a great run knocking 2 minutes off his previous best, clocking 82:41; also, Aoife Fouhy Evans had a fantastic run, knocking 2 minutes off her PB to clock 79 minutes.  

Shane Foley also had a mighty run finishing in hot pursuit of Francis, as had Eugene McCarthy.  Neilus Ahern, crowned All-Ireland champion only a week ago had a very strong run.  Don Ryan had a great run considering he is just back running in the past 4 weeks following a long lay-off injured.  Credit must surely go to Ger McLean, who despite battling flu during the week and pulling up around half-way, got himself back in the race to finish in a fine time of 66 mins, as did Mike Cremin. John Cashman, Fergal O'Meara and Sean O'Sullivan all had very solid runs on their way back to full fitness, finishing around the 67 min mark - watch these spaces, these men will be breaking records soon once they get fully back on track!  Edwin Cashman followed closely behind.  Brian Cott also finished well, and will no doubt continue to improve as he returns to full training.  Others who had good runs were Mick Murphy, Kris Dowdall, Barry O'Dwyer, Joseph McCarthy, Kevin Moran, Kevin Morrisson, Paul Kierans, Alan Morley, Karol Watson, Michael McNamara, Trevor Condon and David O'Sullivan (in no particular order).

Our ladies did us proud also.  Well done to Claire Parker, for whom this was her first 10 mile race, and she finished comfortably.  A great achievement Claire. Karen Knowles also made a super debut as did Shevaun Hogan aided by Vincent Connolly.  Anna Doris had a good run finishing around the 65 min mark.  It was great to see Helen Gilroy return to racing and she had a fine run. Esther Murphy finished around the 72 min mark which shows she too is well on the way back from her prolonged injury - great to see you running so well Esther!  Louise Barry and Yvonne Fitzgerald both had very good runs finishing around the 75 min mark, and were followed closely by Marie Gillman in 77 mins.  Breeda Sheedy finished strong breaking the 80 min mark, and was followed by Anne-Marie Perry.  Christine Murphy ran her first 10 miler in quite some time, showing what she will be capable of when in full training.  A big well done to Sheila Buckley.  Others who had good runs were Gillian Bransfield, Svetlana Creedon, Niamh Dorgan, Bernadette Twomey, Mary Walsh, Michelle McGrath, Susan Fitzgerald, Karen Ahern, Amanda Cooney, Siobhan Savage, Mags Mulcahy, Paula O'Sullivan, and Shirley O'Gorman (again in no particular order).

We had two prize winners as follows - well done ladies:

O/45 1st Anna Doris Midleton AC 65.46 
O/50 2nd Helen Gilroy Midleton AC 71.35 

More to follow!!  But for now, the photos will tell their own tale.  Thanks to Joan McCarthy for taking them.  Thanks also to our wonderful supporters, Donie and Kathleen O'Connell, Mark Walsh, Joan McCarthy, Margaret Barry and Alan Kelly to name but a few.


Thanks to Kathleen O'Connell for the following photos:

JOHN TREACY DUNGARVAN 10 MILE - Sunday, January 31st 1:30pm

If the number of entries are anything to go by, the race of most interest to our members this weekend surely has to be the John Treacy Dungarvan 10 mile race.  Midleton AC have 79 members registered to run, the third largest from any club in the country, and the largest from any club in Cork.  So, wishing all 79 of you a good run, and if you are injured and unable to run, or didn't register to run this time, you might consider coming along to support your fellow clubmates.  All of those running should have received your race number by now, so it's just a case of turning up at the start line.

Best of luck to all our athletes!
