Who won what and times did not matter we has just a wonderful time seniors and juveniles families and friends coming together. Great food, great competitions and mighty craic. Well done to all involved ye really did the club proud and here's to another fifty years.

Shannonvale 10Km

Well done once again to Shane Fitzgerald Foley on a great run here where he finished 7th overall in a time of 38.26. Someone must be doing something right with our latest results .Great running Shane.

Today Rose and I completed a 2.6Km swim from Ballycotton Pier to Ardnahinch Beach Garryvoe. It was cold, deep, very choppy and at least 1Km further than either of us had ever swum before. We did this with 17 other swimmers a number of Kayaks and the Ballycotton lifeboat in aid of Marymount hospice. They do amazing work and anybody can donate at any time at the following link

Brandon Half Marathon

We had one man out here today where conditions were good except for a few showers and a stiff breeze on the way back. Declan Dorgan finished in a very respectable 5th place overall in a time of 1.32. Well done Declan.
