Connolly wins Walker Cup

The 45th running of the Walker Cup took place in Morton Stadium last Thursday evening. As race starter Maurice Ahern call the athletes to the line at 8.00PM the wind picked up on the home straight and the heavens opened making for a refreshing race unlikely to produce any personal bests.

 

As is the norm Ernie Ramsey took off from the start with Colm Groom, Philip O’Doherty and Clonliffe US based athlete Gerry Deegan for company. As the race progressed Ernie pulled away winning comfortably in the end. Philip and Colm had a ding dong battle over the last few laps with 2th place up for grabs with the master taking the spot and the pupil settling for 3th spot.

 

Further down the field good runs by Maurice McCrohan 23.42, Tom Monks 24.35 and Richard Connolly 27.03.

The Walker Cup is a handicap race and is presented to the athlete that beats his handicap by the greatest margin. Richard Connolly took this year’s title with Pat O’Rourke in 2th place and Sean Doran in 3rd place.

 

Club President Paddy Marley presented a gleeming Walker Cup to Richard Connolly on behalf of Frazer Walker.
