As the times tell, great performances from all our athletes, Neil, Gary and Joe Cawley all smashing their old Pbs. Joe taking over a minute off his previous best. Des O'Hare breaking 40 for the first time and with Diana Doll knocked over a minute off their old marks. Denise O'Leary also Pb, great return after long injury layoff, Georgina Devlin and Andrea Murphy also set new marks. Great runs from Elaine Nuzan, just 10 seconds outside her best time, Helen Barry, Jason O'Connor, Noelle Thorpe, Emer Hynes and Paul Humphries aslo close to their Pbs. Helen, would surely have set a new Pb had it not for a lace becoming undone at the 8k mark. Well done to all who competed. Congratulations to the organisers, great race.
