Limerick...Results of the Kilmeedy 5 mile road race - Fri 3rd Aug 2012

A record 128 runners turned out for this years Kilmeedy 5 mile road race in Co.Limerick. This was the 8th race in the ongoing Ballyhoura Active Series. The first man home was Mike Cunningham of Bilboa AC in a time of 27:35 while the first woman was Breeda Lynch in 31:56.

Race report from the organisers.....
Mike Curly Cunningham from Bilboa Athletic Club wound his way to victory in the annual Kilmeedy 5 mile held on August 3rd. His winning time of 27 minutes 35 seconds was just three ahead of clubmate Declan Moore. They set a ferocious pace at the race start, reaching the mile mark at Gilbournes gates in 4.55 along with Ennis Track runner Patrick Quinn. By  three miles at Belville, the Ennis runner had been dropped and turning by Kilmeedy church Cunningham had the narrowest of leads which he held to the line in front of the Glen Bar.

Our ladies title this year went to Breeda Lynch from Doneen in Limerick a clear winner in 31.56 over a minute ahead of Clare's Loretto Duggan with Orla Power in third. The junior womens race also went to Limerick as Saoirse Callaghan Herrity of Limerick Athletic Club won her section and Patrick Hayes took the boys title.

In the over forty section, Edward McDonnell of Mallow was victorious and Verena Tarpey, Doneen Athletic Club won her women's race. Kieran O'Connor from North Cork lifted the mens over fifty title and Berna Egan from Newcastle West won the womens section. John Brady an old friend of this writer took the over fifty five honours for North Cork. Carmel MacDomhnaill of the host club West Limerick won her section here. Now I must pay tribute to West Limerick Athletic Club. Kilmeedy is their fourth road race to organise in the last month in the area and they do trojan work to promote athletics. Once again their help is invaluable at the Kilmeedy race. We had one hundred and twenty eight runners this year, a new record with over forty walkers. Being involved with the Ballyhoura Series of Road Races had been of huge help this year. . We appreciate
also the assistance by Kilmeedy Community Development and their excellent facility in Arás Íde.
