Silver For Cork
Well done to Michelle Kenny on getting a silver medal with the Cork Team in the All Ireland's in Waterford yesterday. No Report on the race to hand.

Helen Gilroy Wins
Helen Gilroy had a fantastic win on Sunday morning in the BHAA Simon Turkey Trot.Helen had a brilliant run and came home in almost the exact time she predicted 26+ .Finishing well up with the front runners Helen got the first lady.What a way for this amazing runner to finish her season as she will be starting her Boston Marathon training programme tomorrow.

                                                 Overall we had a great crew from Midleton AC there far too many to mention bur a few. Mary Toher was there just after completing another marathon yesterday bringing her total this year so far to twenty two.Paul Spiteri was there and the first man home wearing a Santa hat.
Special mention must go to Helen Kidney and Paula O'Sullivan who were doing their first race after starting only with the beginners group last Oct. which is great progress in just over two months.Helen deserves extra special mention as she was wrongly directed on the course and ran nearly an extra quarter mile.Well done girls ye did yourselves proud.May it be the first of many.
