Silver For Dinny McLean

Well done once again to Dinny McLean who despite a week of coughs and colds he still managed to win a Silver Medal in the Munster's yesterday.

Kinsale 10 Mile

We had a fine number in Kinsale also on Sunday with some good results. Ger O'Regan ran 64.19, Declan Dorgan 64.47 and Tony Murray cracked the seventy minutes once again with 69.44. Others who had fine runs were Bernie Twomey, Martha McNamara, Margaret Twohig, Amanda Cooney and Francis Mauncell. Times were effected by the wind which also effected some in Killeagh.

Thanks to Sharon and Bernie for the photos

Killeagh 4 Mile

We had a nice crowd from the club in Killeagh on what was a beautiful morning for running despite a small wind on the return leg of the race. 

Once again all our runners acquitted themselves very well. Tony Forrestal finished a fine 4th overall .Caroline Geary took 2nd O/45 with a new PB by over a minute (who said Vaporfly's don't work) and Breda Sheedy once again took 1st in her category ( second week in a row) and Marc Walsh took  1st O/60.

A very well organised event with a great spread after plus the added bonus of Michael Harty having a great run to set a new course record.

Saturday Runner (Coffee) Beanz 

Saturday morning saw some of our crew stop post run for coffee and cakes at Elle's Coffee Dock in East Ferry. Word back is that the coffee is the best in East Cork and that the cakes even make you run faster. So it's definitely well worth trying, 

Big thanks to Elle and Marian from all the crew.
