Margaret Glavey made a brilliant start to the New Year in the Resolution 5k, where she won the W60 category in a very fast 22.13. Swinford based Margaret is one of our National category medal winners and has had a fantastic year. Her finishing times in distances from 5k to the half marathon are an inspiration to many men and women masters in the club and also to quite a few seniors!
And Congratulations to all our prizwinners and finishers in Ballinrobe and Manulla. Well done to Tracy Durkan who led the organisation of another successful Manulla FC 4 mile.
