Kenneally 2nd in Dublin 10

After a Summer of frustration Mark Kenneally took another step on the road to recovery this morning when he finished 2nd in the Frank Duffy Dublin 10 Mile Championship. The race was the 2nd in the Adidas Race series drawing a huge crowd to the Phoenix Park bright and early for the annual 10 miler over a fairly tough course on an excellent late Summer (or early Autumn, depending on your mood) morning with of course the obligatory Phoenix Park breeze. After his outing for Clonliffe in the 5,000m at last weekend`s magnificent third in a row National T & F league success Mark will be fairly pleased with his progress running a time of 51:48 in taking second place behind Scottish visitor Andy Douglas (50:52).

Yet another good run on the roads today by the ever improving Lorcan Cronin who placed 5th in 52:51. Gary O`Hanlon was the club`s next finisher in 11th place in 54:18, with Mark Birmingham 4th man home in 62:49 in 112th place.

Other Clonliffe: 135th Niall Sherlock 64:12, 157th Jeremy Chapman 64:46, 269th Kieran Murphy 67:51 and Aisling Coppinger 69:33, 338th overall and 9th in her category.

Josphat makes it three out of three

Aug 16, 2008 [Noel Guiden] Clonliffe Kenyan Josphat Boit made it three wins out of three on the roads. Hot on the heels of wins in Carlingford and Galway Josphat took the Frank Duffy Dublin 10 Mile Championship in Dublin`s Phoenix Park this morning.Race conditions were far from ideal with high winds and humidity, however, the athletes can thank their lucky stars for the early start as this afternoon`s four hour downpour would have had them looking for boats at the rowing clubs !

Josphat had things far from his own way as Raheny man Vinnie Mulvey really put it up to him matching him stride for stride. It was only in the final heart stopping sprint finish that Josphat look safe in clocking up his third road race success winning in a time of 49.22 with Vinnie only four seconds in arrears. Excellent performance from both men particularily taking the conditions into account.

Afterwards, Josphat, normally a 5,000m runner with a PB of some 13.16, confessed that he had found the longer race distance somewhat troubling : “That`s the longest distance I`ve ran competitively so I did find it a bit challenging 5K is definitely my preferred race !”

A good run also form Sergiu Turea who was racing back in the capital for the first time in several months after his move down South. Sergiu coming home third in 50.54.

Our third scorer was Michael McDiarmada in 12th recording a time of 54.54. Unfortunately not quite good enough to take the team title which was won by Raheny Shamrocks.

Other Clonliffe results spotted on the official results: 36th Declan Power 57.55, 43rd Niall Sherlock 58.37, 52nd Ronan Hartnett 59.32, his first race in a while, over a distance 16 miles too short as well. Conor Delaney is starting to show good form again and is well over his early season injury recording a time of 62.09 in 81st. Ernie Ramsey was next Clonliffe man in placing 116th (63.39). In 199th was Fergal Hartnett 66.53, clearly only getting back to training again after injury. Paul Duggan ran 67.47 while Paul Carolan will be disappointed with his 69.41, not a fair reflection at all on his current form.

Medal winning performances in Dublin 10 Mile Championships

There was success for the Club in the Dublin 10 Mile Championships incorporated in the Frank Duffy Memorial 10 Mile Road Race held in the Phoenix Park on Saturday, the 20th of August in both the Mens and Womens sections.

The organisers had changed the route somewhat however, despite these changes it was still a particularly tough ten mile course. There was a fine performance in the race by Eddie Coughlan, just finishing outside of the medals in the Championship in 4th place in a time of 54:18. Eddie led the Clonliffe senior team home to silver medal position finishing 2nd behind a very strong Rathfarnham team. (There is however some element of confusion as to whether we were 2nd or 3rd – Rathfarnham also had a strong B team out).

The Clonliffe scorers were Eddie, Kevin English now getting back to form with a time of 57:07David Brennan 57:57 and Tom Griffin 1:02:46.

The other Clonliffe men in the race were Maurice McCrohan 1:03:09 (a PB)Stephen Byrne 1:04:54 (also a PB)Jeremy Walsh 1:05:14Pat Devitt 1:07:50 and Michael Scully 1:08:36 (also a PB).

David Brennan won gold in the Masters section as the first O/45 after his superb run.

For some reason the official result as noted on the Dublin Athletics Board website have missed Maurice McCrohan, it would appear to be clearly the position that Maurice McCrohan won silver in the Mens O/40 category and with certainty finished ahead of the two individuals who are listed in 2nd and 3rd places. The Club are currently looking into this. Pat Devitt was just out of the points paying position finishing 4th in the Mens O/50.

Unfortunately for various reasons with athletes holidays and so on we did not enter a Masters team.

The Ladies team also featured and were led home by Rachel Beck in 1:05:26 with Erin McVeigh 2nd home in 1:07:49 with Bronagh Ni Bhriain 3rd home in1:12:44 to claim silver in the Ladies Senior Championship, again from Rathfarnham in 1st place.

Not a bad days work all around.
