Lizzie Lee of Leevale improved Siobhan O’Doherty’s course record of 21:50 by 18 seconds to 21:32 at the MSD four-miler in Clonmel as O’Doherty took second place in a time of 22:17.

Sean Tobin of the host club knocked 20 seconds off of the previous men’s record when defeating fellow-internationals Brian Maher (KCH) and Kevin Maunsell (Clonmel).

Tobin, who ran a 3:57.00 mile last summer at the Cork City Sports and who was Ireland’s leading finisher in 15th place at the European cross-country two weeks ago, finished in a time of 18:34 with Maher (18:51) also inside the old record as Maunsell equalled the previous mark of 18:54."
