A great winning weekend for Clonliffe athletes (see earlier postings on Leinster Schools and Juvenile league) continued right through the weekend. First up was Sergiu Ciobanu winning the Sixmilebridge 10k yesterday in a pretty good 30:33. The following morning Sergiu was in Youghal for the Emer Casey 10k, another win, even faster 30:06. Gary O`Hanlon continued on his rehabilition programme by winning the Maynooth 10k in 32:59 (a difficult course no doubt) chased home by Darren Reilly in 3rd (34:13) and Ernie Ramsey 4th (34:31). Also on the roads Brian McMahon was 2nd in this mornings Tom Byrne 5k promoted by Lucan Harriers (14:55 on Brian`s watch).
