Great Limerick Run

On a wild and chilly morning four of our athletes took part in the Great Limerick Virtual Run. Breeda Sheedy ran a very impressive 10 miler and Marian Ahern completed the 10k run, despite carrying a hip injury. Linda Curtin and Mark Walsh both ran the half marathon, with commendable performances.  Well done to all.  A good finish to a tough year.
