Mayo AC results at Kinsale 5, Streets of Galway 8k

Norah Newcombe Pieterse on Streets course with Sean Burke Tuam AC








On Saturday evening (August 12) the 37th edition of the Streets of Galway 8k road race was hosted by Galway City Harriers.

As usual a huge field assembled at Fr Griffin Road. The course took them through the city centre, out into a south westerly breeze along St Mary’s Road to Salthill, and back along the Bay with the wind to the South Park finish.
Race winner was David McGlynn Waterford AC 24:07.
Íde Ní Dhomhaill Donore Harriers was the first woman home in 26:48 just two seconds better than her winning time last year. Two weeks ago she won the National Senior 5000m title in 15:44.
