Facebook: Dundrum Athletic Club

From Dundrum AC....The race is in memory of a great club mate of ours and athlete that is fondly remembered by everyone for many clubs throughout Tipperary.

The following words are from our Chairman John Moore shortly after Brendan’s passing.
On Wednesday 16th December 2015 the sudden death of Brendan Kinane stunned everyone that knew him. I first met Brendan in 2006 after he had returned from Japan where he had spent over a decade working in the Horse racing scene.

I remember seeing him at our annual summer road race in Dundrum which he was taking part in. Word had it that this lightly built lad was training with some of his Ballydoyle colleagues in Clonmel. Not long after he had joined our athletic club in Dundrum.

Brendan brought great enthusiasm to the club and quickly immersed himself in all club activities. His responsible work in the world famous Ballydoyle racehorse training facility where one wrong move could cost millions of euros meant he was meticulous in whatever he did.

He quickly immersed himself in the training sessions with the club. He took one of our younger athletes the then sixteen year old Kevin Moore under his wing and they had many training sessions together. He organised training sessions with his great friend Michael Ryan along the roads around Cashel for the club athletes based in that area. His outgoing personality meant he built up a great relationship with athletes from all clubs.

Road running was his favourite discipline and he took great pride especially this year when he beat some established performers in the over fifty category. But above all Brendan's great legacy in the few short years we new him was what he contributed to the club. His work in laying out cross country and road race courses for competition when the club hosted races was a huge help to the club. He was also available whenever asked to assist at our twice weekly juvenile training sessions. He was the driving force along with Michael Ryan to honour the people with a presentation who kept the clubs annual summer road race going every year for the past thirty years last July. He took on the role of club PRO and only filed his last report on the County Senior and Junior Cross Country on the eve of his death.

His popularity was there to be seen at the removal of his remains to Knockavilla Church and burial the following day in Ardmayle Cemetery where his work colleagues from the horse racing family, athletic community, neighbours and friends were in attendance. The funeral cortege was met with a guard of honour on arrival to Knockavilla church organised by Dundrum Athletic Club and joined by other athletic clubs from the county,the local Knockavilla Kickams GAA club and the Dundrum Badminton Club where Brendan was also a member.

Sincere sympathy from Dundrum Athletic Club and all other athletic clubs in the County also from Tipperary Athletics County Board to Brendan's wife Ruth daughter Ava mother Rose sister Ann her husband John and the extended Kinane and Stapleton families. Thanks for the memories Brendan may you rest in peace.

From the organiers...The Michal Rejmer Run committee have made the decision to postpone tonight's 5 mile run on the ground of the current weather warning.

From Clonmel AC... The Morrison BMW 6k road race took place in ideal conditions last night. It was the 3rd race of the series and once again attracted a very good entry as precious points were down for winning on the final night of the 3-race league as there was plenty to run for in all four Divisions. 

There were 46 teams entered and except for one team all the other teams were in with a chance of success, brilliant competition. 

The Club would again like to thank Gary Morrison and Morrison BMW Cahir for sponsoring this year’s series. 

Last night’s race was won by Jimmy Boland in 19 mins 44 secs, 2nd Colm McCarthy (The Regular Blues) in 22 mins 38 secs and 3rd man was Ian Purcell (IP Physical Therapy Team E) in 23 mins 1 sec. 

The top three women were Dympna Ryan (Where is the Finish) in 22 mins 49 secs, 2nd was Kealey Tideswell (STGH 2) in 23 mins 51 secs and 3rd was Suzanne Shine (In it to Win It) in 25 mins 6 secs. 

The Club would like to thank all the team Captains for all their help in making this series of race a brilliant success. The Club would also like to thank Tipperary ETB for the use of Colaiste Cheitinn as race Headquarters and to Tess Kiely for all her help, the Loreto Convent for the use of their facilities as the finish, the Gardai and the Civil Defence. We would also like to acknowledge the help of all our stewards and officials throughout the series, very much appreciated.

Kerry : Results of the Castleisland 10 mile & 5k - Sun 14th Apr 2019

Despite the wet and windy weather, the numbers were up for this years Kingdom Come 10 mile and 5 k road race. As can be seen below, the 10 mile numbers at 220 were the second highest to date.

What's even more remarkable was how well the race did despite the sheer number of races that were clashing with it. There were other 10 milers on the same day in Dromina, Co Cork, Kilnaboy in Co Clare and Killea in Co Tipperary and that's not even counting the glut of other races in Munster.

It was probably the busiest day of 2019 so far for races in Munster.

Tipperary : Results of the Clonmel 6k race - Wed 10th Apr 2019

From Clonmel AC..... The 2nd race of this very popular series took place tonight in ideal running conditions, mild and athletes had no strong breeze to contend with up the back road. Changing conditions meant athletes had to decide whether to stay close to last week’s actual time or set a new target to beat, tough decision. Once again, we had a very competitive race. 

This time Jimmy Boland went to the front and soon had the entire field in Indian file as he led them down the Waterford road. Over a familiar route he kept that strong pace going to come home a very worthy winner in 19 mins 45 secs, great running. Then we had Nigel O Flaherty of the Lucky Dip team finishing 2nd in 21 mins 45 secs with his team mate Brian Carroll 3rd in 22 mins 21 secs. Colm McCarthy of The Regular Blues was 4th in 22 mins 23 secs with Dermot Logue of IP Physical Therapy E 5th in 22 mins 26 secs and Patrick Roche of James Sullivan Running Technique 6th in 22 mins 35 secs. 

The Women’s race was also very competitive, here we had Dympna Ryan of Where is the Finish 1st in 22 mins 40 secs with Angela McCann 2nd in 22 mins 51 secs, Linda Grogan 3rd in 23 mins 20 secs, 4th was Ali O Connor of O Reilly Pharmacy in 24 mins 52 secs with Suzanne Shine of In it to win it 5th in 25 mins and 6th was Anne Marie Boland in 25 mins 17 secs Great running all round.

The team event is hotting up in all four Divisions and it is still all to play for on the final race of the League next Wednesday night. To give all teams an incentive to finish the League off in style we will also be giving a team Prize for the lowest score team, based solely on next week’s performances. That means that we will give a team prize to the team in each Division that score the lowest score in next week’s race outside of this Prize list – the 1st 4 team in Division One, the 1st 3 team in Division Two, Three and Four. So, all to run for.

Please note that the Presentation of Prizes will take place in Mulcahy’s Gladstone Street on Wednesday night 24th April at 9pm.

Once again, the Club would like to thank Morrison BMW Cahir for sponsoring this year’s series of races. The Club would also like to thank the ETB for the use of Colaiste Cheitinn for our race headquarters, thanks also to the Gardai and the Civil Defence and to our many stewards and officials who ensured that the whole event was a brilliant success.

Notice : Castleisland 10 mile race & 5k run in Co Kerry - Sun 14th Apr 2019

The annual 10 mile road race & 5km run in Castleisland, Co.Kerry is coming up on Sunday the 14th of April 2019.

Entries >> You can enter online HERE

The 10 mile race costs €25 while the 5k race costs €11.50. 

Please note that the 10 mile race starts at 11am with the 5k race starting 15 minutes earlier at 10:45am.

Considering its location, it is sure to attract a lot of runners from Kerry, west Limerick and the general west Munster region. Castleisland is only a short distance from Killarney and Tralee and the race should be of particular interest to runners there.

This race is organised by An Ríocht Athletic Club, one of the major clubs in the county.

You can enter and find a lot more info on the race website...

It's worth mentioning also that money raised from the road race will be used for maintenance of the outdoor track in Castleisland. It is the ONLY 400 metre track in Kerry and is used by athletes from clubs in Kerry and west Limerick. If children are going to be involved in the sport then they need access to proper local facilities like this. Perhaps for that reason alone, this race is worth supporting.

Previews....A preview of the new 10 mile course is up on the race website. The 5 km course is HERE
