From Dundrum AC....The race is in memory of a great club mate of ours and athlete that is fondly remembered by everyone for many clubs throughout Tipperary.

The following words are from our Chairman John Moore shortly after Brendan’s passing.
On Wednesday 16th December 2015 the sudden death of Brendan Kinane stunned everyone that knew him. I first met Brendan in 2006 after he had returned from Japan where he had spent over a decade working in the Horse racing scene.

I remember seeing him at our annual summer road race in Dundrum which he was taking part in. Word had it that this lightly built lad was training with some of his Ballydoyle colleagues in Clonmel. Not long after he had joined our athletic club in Dundrum.

Brendan brought great enthusiasm to the club and quickly immersed himself in all club activities. His responsible work in the world famous Ballydoyle racehorse training facility where one wrong move could cost millions of euros meant he was meticulous in whatever he did.

He quickly immersed himself in the training sessions with the club. He took one of our younger athletes the then sixteen year old Kevin Moore under his wing and they had many training sessions together. He organised training sessions with his great friend Michael Ryan along the roads around Cashel for the club athletes based in that area. His outgoing personality meant he built up a great relationship with athletes from all clubs.

Road running was his favourite discipline and he took great pride especially this year when he beat some established performers in the over fifty category. But above all Brendan's great legacy in the few short years we new him was what he contributed to the club. His work in laying out cross country and road race courses for competition when the club hosted races was a huge help to the club. He was also available whenever asked to assist at our twice weekly juvenile training sessions. He was the driving force along with Michael Ryan to honour the people with a presentation who kept the clubs annual summer road race going every year for the past thirty years last July. He took on the role of club PRO and only filed his last report on the County Senior and Junior Cross Country on the eve of his death.

His popularity was there to be seen at the removal of his remains to Knockavilla Church and burial the following day in Ardmayle Cemetery where his work colleagues from the horse racing family, athletic community, neighbours and friends were in attendance. The funeral cortege was met with a guard of honour on arrival to Knockavilla church organised by Dundrum Athletic Club and joined by other athletic clubs from the county,the local Knockavilla Kickams GAA club and the Dundrum Badminton Club where Brendan was also a member.

Sincere sympathy from Dundrum Athletic Club and all other athletic clubs in the County also from Tipperary Athletics County Board to Brendan's wife Ruth daughter Ava mother Rose sister Ann her husband John and the extended Kinane and Stapleton families. Thanks for the memories Brendan may you rest in peace.
