Report from Clonmel AC.......
Kevin Maunsell wins Kilsheelan 10K..........In glorious weather the Kilsheelan 10k took place today with 187 participants starting. The pace was strong from the whistle as a trio of Clonmel AC athletes dictated the pace and they were Niall McCormack along with the Maunsell brothers, Kevin and William. These three athletes last clashed over the Clogheen 5k with the finishing order of Niall, William and Kevin, how were they going to fair out today? 

As they approached Ballypatrick they reached 5k in 16 mins 9 secs. Then Kevin went to the front and put in a very strong sustained effort that eventually shook off both Niall and William and he kept that pace going all the way to the line to win in 31 mins 45 secs, fantastic running and setting a new course record by beating the old record of Patrick Hogan (Ferrybank) of 31:47 set in 2012. Then we had William Maunsell running well to finish 2nd in 31:51 and Niall McCormack 3rd in 32:38. David Ryan of Clonmel AC won the men’s over 40 award in 35:35 with Tom Bourke of Clonmel AC winning the over 45 award in 41:14 and Bernard Feery of Fethard winning the over 50 award in 38:59. 


In the Ladies race Angela McCann of Clonmel AC went into the lead early on in the race and made every stride a winning one when coming home to win in 40 mins 23 secs with her training partner Siobhain McHugh 2nd in 40 mins 52 secs and Suzanne Shine of Clonmel AC 3rd in 43:56. Yvonne O Connor of Clonmel AC won the Ladies over 40 award in 46 mins 2 secs with Anna Byrne of Clonmel AC winning the Ladies over 45 award in 48:13 and Joan Guidera of Clonmel AC winning the Ladies over 50 award in 53:23. 


The organising committee would like to thank the Gardai, the Civil Defence, stewards and anyone who helped to make this event such a success. The Ladies committee are to be complimented on the Post Race refreshments they were appreciated by everyone.

Endorsement of Killarney 10 mile from former Olympian Peter Maher...

The Killarney 10 mile road race is coming up on Saturday the 27th of September. Proceeds from this race will go towards the development of a 200m micro track which will be used by the local college as well as local athletic clubs. More info in this earlier post.

One of those supporting this initiative is Peter Maher who is a former Olympian having represented Canada at the 1998 and 1992 Games.



This is from the organisers.......Peter Maher (former Sem Boy) lends his support to the Killarney 10 Mile. He swapped the shamrock for the maple leaf (country of his birth), and represented Canada in the marathon at the 1988 and 1992 Olympic Games, and at the 1987, 1991, 1993 and 1995 World Championships, 1991 he set a world record for a 25km road race when he ran 1:14:29 in Indianapolis, USA - his split times at 5 mile was 22:57, 10km was 29:05 and 10 mile was 46:29. He has competed in some 50 marathons worldwide with a total of 19 victories. Peter Maher now runs his own physical therapy business in Carrigaline, Co. Cork – and often writes for the Irish Runner magazine. He has asks anyone training for the Dublin city marathon to use this event.

Clare...Results of the Bunratty 10k road race - Sat 6th Sept 2014

I'm not sure what the story is with this one. I'm a bit shocked to be honest...just 31 finishers! It had an AAI licence and was properly measured by Jones Counter. There was a charity run in Kilnaboy but the numbers there weren't huge. Where was everyone? Was the €15 entry fee too expensive?
