Royal Canal Run
Making a welcome return after 4 years, the Royal Canal Run saw big numbers across the different distances on Saturday last with many club members among the large entry. Fiona Gettings and Barry Sheil claimed first place finishes in the 10k and Edel Mooney took the win in the half marathon in 1:28. Seamus Murtagh and Adrian Wrobel covered the most ground when completing the marathon distance in good times. Well done to the race organisers on a very enjoyable event.
Weekly Juvenile and Little Athletics at the Mall resumes on 6 May.
The club extends its sympathies to the Carberry and Murphy families on the sad passing of Robin, Kenagh. May he Rest in Peace.
