More from Sunday April 10: A couple of races in the West, and like the Phoenix Park conditions were breezy and cold. The 32nd Annual Sonny Murphy Kilnaboy 10 (432 finishers) is a traditional and popular event over a classic distance on a one lap course in the Burren. Again this year our two runners there were Anto Devaney and Anne Marie Staunton. Well done to Anto who finished in 62:52, 5th overall and 2nd M40, and to Anne Marie Staunton who finished 7th woman in 74:23, with a new 10 mile PB almost three minutes faster than her Kilnaboy 2015 time.
Well done too to Michael McNeela who ran 1:33.05 in the Connemara Half Marathon, 34th overall (1376 finishers)
