FB1

 

Donore Harriers athlete John Travers has won the 2014 St. Patrick’s 5K Festival Road Race, which took place in Dublin today. He completed the course in a time of 00:14:07.

Race Results

Second place went to Colm Rooney from Clonliffe Harriers AC who finished in 00:14:23. He was followed in third place by Kevin Maunsell of Clonmel AC in a time of 00:14:43.

Winner in the women’s category was Kilcoole AC athlete Fionnula Britton who completed the course in a time of 00:15:33.

Second in the women’s category was Catherina McKiernan with a time of 00:15:58 followed in third place by Lifford AC athlete Ann-Marie McGlynn in 00:16:01

Organised by Metropolitan Harriers & St. Brigid’s Athletic Club, the race was a highlight of the annual St. Patrick’s Festival programme and a major element in attracting tourists and visitors to Dublin City. The record 1,700 entries were made up from dedicated athletes, families, tourists and fun runners alike.

Praising the efforts of all who took part, race director Eamonn Coghlan thanked Dublin City Council and An Garda Sochna for the support which they had given to the event.

Sponsorship was provided by Kleinwort Benson Investors, specialist provider of niche investment strategies for pension funds, charities and corporate bodies, who have supported the event for a number of years.

As an added attraction this year and to coincide with their forthcoming Muppets Most Wanted movie, Disney held a competition for the ‘best inspired Muppet costume’ in the race which was won by 11 year old MSB AC athlete Sarah O’Gorman from Castleknock whose prize is a private screening with 100 of her friends!

 

Dublin Indoor Juvenile Championships

on .

Well done to all Juveniles who took part in the Dublin Indoor Championships.

The Dublin Indoor Track & Field Championships took place over the last two weekends. Unfortunately the bulk of the events took place outdoors on the track in Santry and Tallaght. But the weather was kind – for the most part there was no snow or rain, just the wind to contend with and some individuals were lucky to have their event indoors in Santry. We had 33 individual juveniles take part plus 9 relay teams. And we came away with seven Gold medals, five Silver medals, one Bronze medal and a silver for one of our relay teams. Plus a few very close fourths – these races were often the really exciting ones to watch.

It is early in the season and considering we trained all winter on grass this is a wonderful achievement. Thanks to all the coaches for their dedication and to the parents for their support. Thanks to all who helped out at these Championships. The number of Juveniles has increased exponentially and in order to facilitate the competition, clubs have to contribute helpers. Our parents have always been wiling to help at the various events. Medal winners were:

U9G            Aoife Brown – 2nd 500m

U9B             Thomas Bolton- 1st 500m

U11G          Sadhbh Mohan – 1st 600m

U12 B          Traian Rebegea – 2nd 600m

U11B           Niall Hogan – 1st 600m

U13G          Sarah O’Gorman – 2nd HJ

U14G          Molly Brown – 1st 800m

U14G          Aisling Mohan – 3rd 800m

U16G          Nicole O’Gorman – 1st 800m

U17G          Aoife Simm – 1st SP and 2nd HJ

U18G          Vanessa O’Connor – 1st 400m and 2nd 800m

U14G          4 x 200m Relay – 2nd

All of the above from U12 up qualify to go to Nationals. Congratulations to all concerned but especially those who where 4th/5th . We can be proud of all our athletes both in their competition and their behaviour off track.

€2,767 raised! Thanks to everybody who came along on the day and contributed very generously not just from your pockets but with your time and your great spirits which created a really nice event suitable for all the family.

Crowds were well up on last year and we were really lucky with the weather. The field looked good. Great to have local GAA celebrities in attendance from the Brogan family, Bernard Snr and Alan

Thanks very much everybody who helped out.
