Loughglynn Results

The toughest assignment of the day was undertaken by Michael McNeela who travelled to Limerick to compete in the marathon with a 9am start time – one of three races in the city. It was his seventh marathon and he finished in 3:17. That’s a couple of minutes outside his Dublin 2012 PB 3:14. Michael says he was ‘happy enough, conditions were dry but windy in spots’. Well done, Michael.
