Colette Tuohy third in Fields of Athenry 10k

Our happy and successful crew at Athenry

It was a mild and misty St Stephen’s Day start for athletics events around the province. Ideal for all those blowing away the festive cobwebs and calories. For many it was a final opportunity to finish 2018 on a high note.

Colette Tuohy had a brilliant run in the Fields of Athenry 10k finishing third woman overall in an excellent 39:10.
The women’s race winner was Laura Shaughnessy in a course record 34:56, with Jane Ann Meehan (GCH) second in 37:28. Mick Clohisey (Raheny Shamrock AC) was the clear race winner again this year in 29:46, over half a minute faster than last year. Hugh Armstrong (Ballina AC) was second in 31:07.

Mags Glavey was our other winner with a great time 47:02 (46:44 chip) and 1st F65.
