Weekly News – 19th March


Fionnuala Britton won the St. Patrick’s Festival 5k for the second year in a row on the streets of Dublin this past Sunday. She ran a time of 15:52 to hold off the challenge from some of Ireland’s top distance runners, including Anne-Marie McGlynn and Siobhan O’Doherty. Meanwhile, the men’s race was won by John Coghlan of the host club MSB AC in a time of 14:32.

We also wish the best of luck across the Atlantic to Úna Britton as she resumes her US collegiate season. Úna will be competing every weekend for the next two months in the colours of Eastern Kentucky University.

Upcoming Events

Back home, our next Championship race is the Leinster 10 mile Road Race in Raheny on Easter Monday. Our friends from Sli Cualann are sending a strong team of 30+ male and female athletes across all age-groups (S, O40, O45, O50) to this race. This means there is a great chance for our runners to claim spots on medal-winning County Wicklow teams.
