Clonliffe at Raheny 5

Almost 60 Clonliffe athletes competed in the Raheny 5 mile in Raheny Village this afternoon. Great compliments must go to the organisers for putting on a top class event with a huge field of over 4000 athletes led home by Mick Clohisey of the host club in 23.26.

First of the black and amber was Ian Guiden  in a time of 24.21 to take 7th place with Cathal Doyle next in (24.39) for 12 place both running pbs Sean Doran 29th in 25.47 (looks like that is also a PB) and Robert Reid in 28.55 to finish 3rd M50. First of the Clonliffe ladies was Maura Matthews 32.07.

Table below sets out all 57 of the Clonliffe finishers:
