At the Dublin 10,000M C’ship held with last nights graded meeting Clonliffe’s David Brennan finished 2nd in the Senior championship Race to take county silver in a time of 34:51. Originally it was intended that the Dublin Masters C’ship would also be held in conjunction with that race but in view of the low numbers it was unclear as to whether the Masters C’ship was actually taking place. There was also a full programme of graded track and field events which featured a number of excellent performances from our athletes.
