A special presentation took place where Joe Roy was presented with a medal he won 60 years ago, but was unavailable to receive at the time (better late than never !!), congrats Joe. By coincidence Joe Roy won the O’Connor Cup in 1960 !!!

Many thanks to our president; Paddy Marley for his presence and to everyone who helped make this race such a success. Thanks to Caroline and Paddy Tuite for the after race refreshments.

Best of luck in the future to Carol Flood, who returns to Glaslough Harriers.
