We returned to training in January and we had some huge turnouts at training on Tuesday nights with numbers between 50 and 60. This was a great way to start the new year and the enthusiasm was infectious.[ads1]
We had seven club members set a world record in January. There was a world marathon relay record set in UL in aid of the Clionas Foundation. The magnificent seven were Eoin McAuliffe, Caroline Conroyomalley, Declan Guina, Edel Henriques, John O Shea, Paul Crotty and Sean McAuliffe.
Carmel Mac Domhnaill took the Munster Senior and Masters Indoors by storm as she won 3 gold medals and Niall O Riordan ran a very good race in the 3000m. A sign of things to come for Niall.
At the other end of the sporting spectrum we had Sheila Clavin completing the Art O Neill challenge in icey conditions in the Dublin and Wicklow Mountains. A tough endurance race.
