The race was won by Siobhan O'Doherty, Borrisokane AC, in a time of 34.20. Persistence pays off for the winner as she had been 2nd in 2011 and 2012. Well done to everyone who took part in what is a great occasion.

A reminder to all our female athletes that we are hoping to have a large group travelling to the Tipperary Womens 10k, in Clonmel, on Sunday 29th September at 11am. Details can be found on . We are also hoping to have a large group of our male athletes travelling to support those taking part.

RTE's,   IRELAND'S FITTEST FAMILY.  From Sharon Dalton

I am working on a show called Ireland's Fittest Family and I was hoping that you might be able to help me. We are looking for fit families to participate in the show. Please have a look at the promo and I have attached a press release. We would love if you could post the promo on your Facebook or maybe send it out to your contacts. As the criteria is quite particular you might know people personally that you think would be great for the show, if you do please send them on my number. The family need to have 4 members, 1man, 1 woman, 1 parent (all over 14) and be fit.

Give me a bell if you have any questions or suggestions. If you think of a family please send them my direction or they can apply on this link
