Bandon 5 Mile 1st Jan, 2016

A great start to the year for the hardy Barr’s runners who competed in the Bandon 5 mile race on New Year’s Day in what can only be described as miserable conditions with the wind and rain on the day.

John Meade led the charge and finished 2nd in 25.57 with Rory O Sullivan (5th), Michael Morgan (8th) and Eoin O Keeffe (10th) all in the top 10.
Denis Lyons was 13th, and it was good to see Alex O Shea back racing and finishing in a creditable 29.09. (There is no truth in the rumour that he had just run to Bandon from Limerick :) ) Paul Duggan was another Barr’s member to break the 30 minute barrier. Eamonn McEvoy, Martin O Reilly, Conor O Sullivan, Tim O Donnell and Michael O Crualaoi completed the list of Barr’s members who competed. Well done to all!
