Report from West Waterford AC.... We made our annual trip to An Rinn last Friday evening for race 8 in the 2016 Ger Wyley Sports /Skins summer series the Mooney's pub sponsored Ras Na Rinne 6 mile race. There was a good turnout of 113 runners on the night which was well up on the number who ran in 2015.
The weather was showery for the race and it was quite windy as the field headed out to complete the famed An Coinigeár course The race started at 8.00 and the runners were set on their way by Liam Morrissey the new proprietor of Mooney's Pub and we wish Liam ever success with his new venture. Local race organisers Seamus O'Droma and Gerry Cantwell the clubs road racing coordinator once again had all race day details in order last Friday evening and the event went off brilliantly.
Our thanks to all who helped on the night and to those who looked after the entries and results and finish area Tony,Ray,Sharon, Shirley and Irene great job lads efficiently done as always.
