We have finally got confirmation of John Byrne’s bronze medal in the National Half Marathon 035 category. This is great news, and well deserved for our ‘long running’ leading athlete! Like Pauline Moran (as we have noted in last week-ends Outdoor Track results) this completes a wonderful book-end week of medals for John, adding to the medal he won in the O35 5,000 metres at Tullamore last Sunday.
There was another bonus to the Half Marathon amendments made by Athletics Ireland. John Byrne’s finishing time was not included in our Senior team result when they were first published. Now that it has been, they have moved up a few places to a very creditable 4th position. The other team members are Roger Barrett and John Nolan. Thanks to Ann McDonnell and others who helped get all this sorted…again.

The provisional results from the Streets of Galway have also been amended. As we reported in the week-end results, Colette Tuohy finished 6th woman overall. However, this was not acknowledged when the prizewinners pdf was published on the GCH website. The organising committee have now reviewed this ‘anomaly’ and Colette is now placed 6th overall. Well done again!
