Kenneally takes National 10k Title in Great Ireland Run

Mark Kenneally added the National 10k road title to his 10,000m title in the Phoenix Park today. The National 10k was held in conjunction with the Spar Great Ireland Run which attracted a field over over 10,000 runners. Kenneally was first Irishman home in 7th place in a pretty nippy 29:23. The Great Ireland Run was won by the great Kenenisa Bekele in the fastest ever 10k run in Ireland, an equal 2012 World Best of 27:49.

Other Clonliffe in the men`s race included good runs by Ernie Ramsey, Darren Reilly, Ger Kirwin and Joe Phibbs.

In the ladies race Sarah McCormack was well up in the early stages and was rewarded for her fine run (35:15) with National Bronze. Final results not yet to hand.
