Once again our members scored well in the County Galway 5k series. Ruaidhrí Geraghty won the Craughwell 5k in 16:32 on a fairly tough course in windy conditions. He was followed again by Conor Moloney in second. Ned O'Sullivan (unaffiliated) was third man - I guess that means he'll be running in a Craughwell AC vest next week! Martin McEvilly was fifth overall and John Devlin made it four in the top six for GCH.

Regina Casey was first woman home in 19:12 with Anne-Marie Miskell taking second.
