The club was represented by 1 man and 7 ladies at the County Intermediate Road Championships hosted in Faugheen by Carrick-on-Suir AC. With a constant drizzle and a cold day it was hard for the athletes to keep and stay warm but the performances from the eight of them were excellent.
Stephen Flanagan was our lone representative in the men’s 8k race, run over a two lap course, but did himself and the club proud with a great performance to finish in 8th place overall in a time of 28.11. In the ladies race it was once again Angela Fogarty who led the team home with an excellent fifth place finish in 15.48. Three of our athletes finished within 16 secs of each other when Louise Fogarty posted 10th place in 16.18, Kate Harrison 11th in 16.33 and Susan Fogarty 12th in 16.34. Sarah Healy came through to finish 15th overall in 17.03 while Sharon Cantwell finished 22nd in a time of 18.55 with Catherine Dunne 27th in 20.51. On a score of 26pts the club finished third in the team category with Angela, Louise and Kate the recipients of the bronze medals. The second team of Susan, Sarah and Sharon finished 5th overall from a total of 10 teams. To have two teams in the top half of the club competition is a testament to the strength of the ladies.
