Win, Win, Win and Win Again.
Midleton AC Ladies sweep the boards.

                                                  What a fantastic series of wins we had on Sunday at the Eddie Hennessy Memorial 6Km race in Little Island. Anna Doris showed the form she has been promising for some time and came home 1st Lady. Louise Barry had another great run and came home 3rd O/35 to claim her first prize ever to huge applause. Not to be out done Bernie Twomey claimed her first win ever in taking 1st O/40 follow by two ladies well used to the podium Margaret Jones took 1st O/45 and Marie Gillman took 2nd O/50 and she also won a team prize and to crown things off got a PB as did several others.
                               The the newly organised team by Edmond O'Sullivan Midleton Town Council took 1st Team with Anna Doris and Helen Leonard (2nd Lady overall) this again was the first win for the new team. On the mens side we had one prize winner with John O'Halloran  taking 2nd O/60.
                                          We had a fine crew out from the club including some supporters. There was a total of four hundred and forty two ran making it a new record for the race. The new 6km course proved very popular and the event was as always very well organised. Of course we have come to expect nothing less with Midleton ACs good friend Denise Twohig as one of the main organisers. Well done all and congrats on all the PBs.
