Ballycotton 10 Sunday, 3rd March, 2013

There were some fantastic performances by Barr’s athletes again in Ballycotton yesterday. Scanning through the provisional results there are a lot of Barr’s members in the Top 100 and some fantastic times posted by people.

Allen Whitaker was 3rd M40. Cathal O Connell was 1st M45 (21st overall). Tony Archer was 1st M50 and Eamonn McEvoy was 2nd M55.

In the ladies Claire McCarthy was third lady home in a great performance, Margo Dinan was 2nd F45 (with a pb!) and Mary Sweeney was 1st F50.

Great performances. If I missed anyone apologies as this was from scanning the provisional results and I will update this to correct any errors or omissions when the proper results are out with the list of category winners.

Well done to all who ran so well on a nice day for running (despite the wind coming back!).
