All roads to Raheny for National Road Relays (Updated)

Raheny village is once again the venue for Sunday`s National Road Relays with Rathfarnham and DSD expected to put up strong defences of the senior men and women`s titles won last year. After a period in the mid to late 2000s when the Clonliffe men were dominent the road relays have not been a happy hunting ground in recent years,  however the men will look to improve on last year`s 5th place showing by what was a very youthful team. Word in Santry is of stiff competition to make the A team with 2 teams to start. The club captain after much deliberation and consulation with his staff confirmed the 2 senior and master  men`s teams:

Senior A : A. Hanlon, K. Valters, D. Fitzmaurice, M. MacDiarmada

Senior B: M. McDonald, C. Healy, I. Guiden, L. Ashton

Masters A: N. Bouzine, C. Muldoon, P. O`Doherty

Masters B: L. Hennessy, P. Byrne, McCarthy

The women`s teams look strong, in particular Pamela Cooper has named an impressive A team that looks well capable of repeating 2012`s medalling performance. The A team is Michelle English, Ailish Malone and Becky Woods,  the B team is Sinead Hartnett, Roisin Leahy, and Orlaith Durkan.
