Galway City Harriers are deeply saddened to hear of the tragic death of Sinéad Brody, a valued member of the club. Sinéad was a club member for several years, and a person and athlete of great talent, dedication and determination. She was a vibrant presence at training sessions and races throughout Galway and further afield. Her death leaves a deep void among her many friends in GCH and wider athletic circles.
Many thanks to all who made the 2018 Galway Clinic Streets of Galway 8k a huge success.

Well done to everyone who was there!
