On Friday the 25th  of November 2011, at 8.30pm, a history of the Derrydonnell AC, entitled ‘In Their Bare Feet’ will be launched in the Raheen Woods Hotel, Athenry, Co.Galway.

The book, which has been written by Mick Rice, a member of Athenry AC, is generously illustrated with vintage photographs of the various club teams and individuals that brought such honour to their
club and county and which recounts in detail the adventures that gave rise to the legend. With contributions from the athletes themselves and a number of prominent athletics journalists, the book will be enjoyed by anyone with an interest in Galway’s sporting heritage.

Many of the athletes who ran with the club, including Tommy Madden, Willie Morris and many
others will attend that launch. Master of ceremonies will be Frank Greally of Irish Runner Magazine
