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. To Liam O’Donnell on van duty, Thanks to our steward's on the course, John Leahy, Conor Norris and Jamie Mills on road management duty.  A sincere thank also goes to Comhairle Phobail na Rinne for providing the use of their hall for taking the entries. 

The race Friday evening was also part of a series of races being organised by Oireachtas  na Gaeilge and we thank Majella and all involved with this series for their input into our race here in An Rinne and for providing the T Shirts for the race also, this was much appreciated by all the runners. To our race sponsors Mooney’s Pub for their generous sponsorship and to Liam Morrissey who was on hand to present the winners with their prizes. Special thanks to those who provided the food for the runners especially to Josie Ui Chuirrin for the beautiful cakes, thanks to the O’ Droma family Seamus, Mary Rose and Darren of An Rinn who presented their family shield to the winner on the night, many thanks to one and all. See you in 2017.
