The mens race saw a magnificent front running performance from Damien Lawless, Parnell AC, to be first man home ahead of the incredible Mick Byrne, Parnells AC, Gary Condon and Joe Cawley. The womens race was a entirely different race, with 7 athletes, 3 from Kilcoole, 2 from Parnell AC, 1 from Greystones and our own Ashling and Suzanne all in with a chance of winning as they entered the final lap. In the end it was Carol Costello, Greystones who finished first after a great battle with Ashling Smith, 2nd and Annmarie Kenny, Parnell Ac, 3rd (all in O/40 Cat). Great turnout, with almost 70 athletes taking part. Well done to all who took part.
