West Limerick AC NOTES 5/1/2022


West Limerick A.C club notes 5/01/22


The club regrets the death of Nena (nee Tion) wife of Tom Fitzgerald, Castlerea, Co Roscommon. Our sympathy goes to Tom and to the family, Morgan, and Kristina. From Ballygran, Tom was one of the Stewarts of West Limerick AC when the club was chasing down its first county senior titles. He returned from London on occasions just to help out the team and always put in a sterling performance. Solas na bhflaitheas go bhfeice sí.  

Cavan park run

Mike Mac Domhnaill, John Barrett, Davy Condon, and Danny Massey all competed in the Cavan Parkrun in honour of Nena. Mike ran well to finish second in 22.50.

New Year’s Day park run

We had six runners take part in the New Year’s Day park run. Con Mulcahy finished third in a time of 22:56. Shane Quille placed fourth in a time of 23:16. Mark Ryan ran well to finish in 26:02. Niamh O Mahony finished in a time of 30:10. Eileen O’Connor finished in a time of 38:48. Denis Fitzgeralf completed the 5k in 50:33. Well done.
