Well done to club member, Martina O’Dwyer, on her great performance at the prestigious Gerry Farnan Cross-Country race in the Phoenix Park on Sunday last. Martina was the third home in the O/35 category.

This race was used by some of the Irish senior team in preparation for the European Championships and the ladies’ race was won by Fionnuala Britton.

Martina’s run has qualified her to represent Ireland at the upcoming International Masters’ meeting in Cardiff. All in the club wish her well in her training for this event.
