Youghal AC had a large number of athletes who participated in the very well organised Clonpriest 5k Road Race on 30th April. There were approximately 51 athletes out in force from the club. It was great to see Aoife Cooke running for Youghal AC finishing in 1st place in a superb time of 17.38. Aoife was followed by Ann Marie Holland 2nd lady in a time of 18.39 and Evelyn Cashman was the third lady in a time of 18.43. Mary O’ Keefe was 1st O50 in a time of 22.01 and Deirdre Ansboro also won 2nd prize in the O35 category 21.11. The ladies are indeed proving to be very strong.

Nigel Sheehan was the first Youghal AC man home in 6th place in a very good time of 17.09 and won an individual prize. Marty O’ Keefe was 1st O45 in a time of 17.23 and Stephen Devereaux was 2nd O45 18.18. Ciaran Coleman was the 2nd man O40 18.13 and Noel Curtin who is improving was 2nd O50 18.05. These were excellent results and great form is being shown throughout. Many PBs were obtained on the night and the refreshments were as usual superb and a very good atmosphere was experienced.
