(Sponsored by Youghal Credit Union)

Hello to all from Youghal AC.

The past two months have been very busy for the club and all our athletes. Our round the house 4 mile race was a great success and we had 235 runners on the night. The men’s race was won by Sean McGrath followed by Noel Berkley and Rory Sexton. The ladies race was won by Dymphna Ryan followed by Anne-Marie Holland and Helen Leonard.

Well done to all who helped out on the night but a special mention to the ladies who did all the catering the spread was magnificent. This race will now be an annual event on the circuit and with the fast flat course will attract more runners next year.

Thanks to TrinRun and Youghal Credit Union for the sponsorship on the night.

We have had many winners at all the recent road races but pride of place must go to Mary Kingston for her great win in the recent Conna race over a very tough course. Other winners in recent races include John Malone, Noel Curtin, Adam Malone, Eddie O’Regan, Ken Harney, Brian Landers, Sylvie O’Mahony, George Bulman, Celia O’Regan, Denis O’Sullivan, Steve Deveraux, Fergal Curtin, Thomas Curran, Dermot Ledingham.

We have carried out great work above in Tower Park over the Summer months with a new car park and additional running space. It is now great facility for all our children and adults to train in and please use it. We had many good night above there picking stones and cleaning with some great banter and stories.
