Report from Dundrum AC.......

Coillte 10k/5k Dundrum
An entry of 245 athletes went to the start line which included 29 athletes in the Junior 5k race down overall on last year but still good for the roasting hot weather conditions of the past few weeks. The hot conditions probably accounted for some of the 10 athletes who failed to finish the 10k and the 1 athlete who failed to complete the Junior race. Even though non finishers are common every year with the two lap race.

Kenyan athlete Freddy Keron Sittuk who competes for Dublin club Raheny Shamrock’s was gone from the whistle at the start of the two lap course and he was well clear as he headed out on the second lap. Kevin Moore from the host club Dundrum put in a great last lap to close down the gap on the African man to one second at the end. International athlete Siobhan O’Doherty from the Borrisokane club was a clear winner of the women’s race for the eleventh time.

Twelve year old Shane Buckley from the Dundrum club was a impressive winner of the Junior 5k race while Thurles Crokes athlete Nuala Fitzgibbon won the girls race.

Limerick : Results of the Briff 5 mile - Fri 30th June 2018


The annual Bruff 5 mile road race was held on Friday the 29th of June 2018 and 131 runners took part. That's a 25% reduction on 2017 and as can be seen from the chart above, there has been a big drop since 2016.

Perhaps another sign that the running boom is beginning to fizzle out a bit?

Notice : West Waterford Greenway Half-Marathon - Sat 8th Sept 2018

The 2nd West Waterford Greenway Half-Marathon is coming up this year on Saturday the 8th of September 2018 at 9am. When this new half-marathon opened last year, it sold out in just 2 day!


There is a limit of 750 entries this year and it will open on Monday the 2nd of July at 9am.


The new Greenway which runs from Waterford City to Dungarvan follows the route of the old railway line and opened in 2017. With a combination of mountain and coastal views, it has been really popular with walkers, runners and cyclists.

This Greenway goes from Kilmacthomas to Dungarvan going across several viaducts and through the 400 metre long Ballyvoile tunnel. This video below gives a flavour of what the greenway is like.



This is likely to fill up fast so don't delay entering if you are interested.

This race is organised by West Waterford AC and they have all the info up on their website HERE

Limercik... Results of the Bilboa AC 10k & 5k - Fri 15th June 2018

It's always interesting to look at the numbers for a race like this which has been going for a number of years to see if there are any trends. This year, the 10k dropped to 96 finishers which is the lowest since at least 2007 (not sure what year the race started?). The 5k was also down with 34 finishers.

It seems to follow a trend of other races in Munster as the number are dropping gradually. It's hard to know what the exact reason is but there does seem to be a drop off in adults under the age of 35 coming into the sport.

Notice...Dromcollogher Carnival 4 mile road race, Co.Limerick - Mon 2nd July 2018

The annual Dromcollogher Carnival 4 mile road race is coming up on Monday evening, the 2nd of July 2018 at 8pm...



As a race, it may not be as high profile as say those located closer to say Limerick or Cork City but it is an event with a lot of character and a long history. The race was originally started back in the time of the original running boom in the late 70's and early 80's by Christy Brosnan and Joe Quaid of North Cork AC. The original idea was for it to be part of the Dromcollogher Carnival which has been going since the 1940's and for the race to take place on Monday evening, a tradition that survives to this day.

In it's heyday, the race used to attract some of the top runners from all over Munster even though the prizes were always modest in comparison to other races at the time. On one occasion, Liam O'Brien from Cork won the race the day after winning the National 3000m steeplechase title! The triangle shaped course started and finished in the main square of the town much to the delight of the crowds. This did however mean that the race was in fact 'slightly' longer than the advertised 4 miles ;o)

One of the other unusual features of the race at the time was that the winner received a small porcelain figurine. One of the biggest employers at that time in the town was Irish Dresden, a German company which made high quality collectable porcelain items in the town which employed over 60 people, a huge number in what was and still is a rural area.

West Limerick AC are helping out with the organisation of the race and they are putting up a cup in memory of Christy Brosnan who unfortunately has now passed away. This replaces the old cup which was named after Marky O'Shea who used to run in the local races of the late 70's and early 80's barefoot, a long time before minimalist running and Vibram Five Fingers became all the rage ;o)

Getting there.....Dromcollogher is located to the west of Charleville near the Limerick - Cork border. If you are coming from say Limerick city then the easiest way is probably to head south towards Cork and turn off at Charleville and follow the directions for Newtownshandrum, Milford and Dromcollogher. If you are travelling north from Cork then turn off at Buttevant and go via Liscarroll.


As you enter the town from the east then you should see that the road forks into two where the central square is. Take the right here, drive a few hundred metres on what is a very straight road and you will pass the start line just opposite a service station. The GAA hall where the entries will be taken is just beyond this on the left.

Notice...Coillte 10k road race, Dundrum, Tipperary - Wed 4th July 2018

This popular 10k race in coming up in the village of Dundrum, Co.Tipperary on Wednesday the 4th of July 2018. In terms of fast 10k courses, this must surely be one of the fastest in Munster if not the country.



Dundrum is a small village just 9 miles or so west of Cashel in the south of Tipperary...

Organised by Dundrum Athletic Club, this race is noted for being a flat fast course. As well of there being no hills, the course consists of multiple long straight sections rather than the more usual twists and turns. I've previewed many courses on this site but this one is really fast.


Entries......The entry fee is €15 on the night.

The map below shows where everything is. For spectators...note the points A, B and C. If you move between these points which are just over 100m apart you can see the athletes at approx. 0.25miles , 2.4miles, 3.2miles and again at 5.4miles.

Course Preview......The 10k course is essentially two laps of a 5k loop. A full preview of the course with maps, description, photos, etc can be seen HERE


Many races have different traditions. Some give out t-shirts, some mugs. In the case of the Coillte 10k, they give out a quality embroidered hand towel given to every finisher. and they have been doing this for over 20 years. Even on years where they had run out of towels on the night, they hand delivered them to these people in the following weeks.


The Tim Crowe Trophy is presented on the night to the first Tipperary Athlete in honour of his 24 national titles won in the early 1900s, who was from the village of Dundrum.

Notice...Ballynonty 10 mile road race, Tipperary - Sun 29th July 2018

This 10 mile road race is coming up on Sunday the 29th of July 2018 at 11am. It could probably be best described as a 'back to basics, no frills' 10 mile road race.



There is no chip timing, no dry fit tops, no medals, no online entries, no early bird entry, no late bird entry, no goodie bags or any of the other stuff. Just a good quality old fashioned 10 mile road race over an accurately measured course for a very modest price with a great spread afterwards.


The village of Ballynonty is in South Tipperary and is just a few miles off the M8 motorway.


The race is organised by Ballynonty AC who have a website HERE.
