Paddy Larkin Memorial 3k

It was great to see such an impressive turnout for the annual Paddy Larkin Memorial 3k race last Thursday evening with athletes competing in the 3000m race that took in the entire stadium in a figure-of-eight route encompassing laps of both the tarmac and tartan tracks. Christopher Whittle beat Leonard Mooney in a sprint finish to take 1st place in 9.52; Leonard ran 9.53 and Padraig Berry was third in 10.10.

Nadine Donegan dominated the women’s race winning in 10.54 with his sister Danielle a very close second in 10.56. Katie O’Keefe was third in 11.04. Mass was celebrated afterwards in the club house marking the 11th anniversary of Paddy’s passing. Well done to all who ran and thanks to all who supported the memorial evening.
