Poulmucka 8k

A field of 132 athletes lined up for the annual Poulmucka 8km road race on Friday evening last.In the men’s race, Carrick Roadrunners were very much to the fore with David Waters running a fantastic race when just pipped for first place by Declan Doherty (Thurles Crokes) in a sprint to the line.Only three seconds separated these two runners and Carrick’s Tommy Falconer was hot on their heels in third place with a time of 27:59.Patrick Roche finished in seventh with another fine run.The ever-consistent Brendan Cronin (30:45) once again took first O/50 prize.
In the ladies’ race,there was a comfortable win for Siobhan Doherty (Borrisokane) from Margaret Danagher (Templemore).There was a welcome return to action from Carrick AC’s Martina O’ Dwyer who was fourth lady home.Claire Annan ran very well to clock 32:41.There were also very good performances from Teresa Cunningham, Nanette O’ Connell and Ann Cronin.
