In the Dublin City Marathon (National Championship), we had 4 athletes taking part in this event, and Ballynonty had much to cheer when Tom Halpin ran a blinder to win silver O/55 in 2 hrs 59min 19s.

Tom has been running very well at the long distances all summer and this is a deserved honour. Also taking part were regular competitors, Jimmy Butler 3hrs 55.07, John Durnin 4hrs 00.50 and Neilie (Sonic) Hall 4hrs 12.55.
