Kerry...Results of the Killarney 5km race - Sat 27th Feb 2010

This was the 4th and final race in the Spring series of 5 km races in Killarney organised by Gneeveguilla AC for the month of February.

Race Report by John Dunphy...
Another fine performance by Ed Murphy of Gneeveguilla AC saw him take the overall title by claiming his third victory in this 5k road race series held in the  Killarney National park. After four very good outings, John Barrett also of Gneeveguilla AC picked up second place overall to cap a very enjoyable series in which John was never above 17 minutes in any of the four races.Niall Collins (No Club) and Billy O'Brien of An Riocht took third and fourth place overall with some excellent performances from both lads throughout this series.

In the Women's section Maureen Harrington of An Riocht AC and Anna Meria Costello of Gneeveguilla AC produced a fine race between the two in which both ladies were at each other's heels from the off. Maureen held on at the finish to win by 3 seconds from the overall series winner Anna Meria Costello. Mary O'Connor of An Riocht took second place in the series with some fine performances through out each race. Geraldine O'Sullivan of Bantry finishing a very creditable third place over all in the series.

After the race the athletes enjoyed some nice refreshments in the Kerry Parents & Friends (Old Monastery), Port Road.where all the category prizes were awarded to each individual in their respective categories.

I would like to congratulate Gneeveguilla AC on putting on this excellent and well organized series and I'm sure all that took part really enjoyed each event. Well done to all at Gneeveguilla AC!!.........
