Cork County Road Racing Championships
Medals Galore For Midleton AC
Ladies and Men

At the Cork County Road Racing Championships in Castlelyons on Monday we had a great crowd out representing the club and also a great crowd supporting. It was all well worth it as we came away with a load of medals all very well deserved. Our first lady home having another great run was Gillian Bransfield and our first man home was Barry O’Shea both too young to qualify as masters.

Our ladies team took 2nd O/45 and got the Silver Medals. They were Marian Ahern, Claire Fitzgerald, Christine Murphy and Margaret Twohig whilst Marian Aherne also won Bronze 3Rd O/50 and her first championship medal.. Other lady prize winners were Kathleen O’Connell Silver  2nd O/55, Joan McCarthy Bronze 3rd O/60 and Margaret Barry Gold 1st O/65. Anne Marie Perry and Amanda Cooney also had very fine runs narrowly missing out on  medals.

Our men also had great runs with Tim Hannon getting another PB that is two PBs in two days over different distances. Kevin Smith also had another great run. Our medal winners were Mark Walsh Gold 1st O/55 and our men O/50 team Bronze with Mark Walsh, John Cashman, Donie O’Connell and Barry Drennan.

 Midleton 5 Race Director Marc Dalton believes in
starting them young.
