St Nicholas AC Coolagown 5km

                                                     Tonight saw the welcome return of the Coolagown 5Km the first since 2005 which seems unbelivable but the facts are in the results.Old results were displayed courtesy of Denis Mc Carthy and what might be of interest to many members is that in former years Eileen Kenny (Michelle's Mam) was one of the major prizewinners.
                                               But enough history lets get back to tonight.There were some great runs  Paul Spiteri who is having a superb season came home in 18.48 which believe me on this course is some running and getting a 20 sec PB. Then Paul was followed home by John Cashman the Ballintotis Rocket running the best he has in years taking 2nd O/45 next came Edmond O'Sullivan who seems to running his best in ages also and he also won 1St O/50 for his super running.( He seems to be making a habit of this lately and according to himself he never came first in anything until recently ) Next came Fergal O'Meara who despite being in  heavy training managed to cruise up the fingerboard in a fantastic time of 19.29 well ahead of his recent Carrigtwohill time.Next came Tom Cody getting 2nd O/55 and then came John Carey who amazingly did the Lost Sheep Triathalon last weekend and still managed a fantastic run tonight,Next came the solid as the rock Mick Murphy in 21.20 consistent as always  and heading back to his best.
Our ladies as always despite missing some of our leading lights did well as always Joan Hough  came 1st O/55 whilst Kathleen O'Connell coming back from injury came 2nd O/55.
