Climb aboard the Corrib Princess and join in the Birthday celebrations.
We've chartered the boat from 7-11pm on August 22nd. The cost is a recession friendly €20, to include entertainment and food.
I have had a great response so far but there are still approximately 15 places left. These are open to GCH members and our close running friends. If there are stil some places and your wives/husbands/partners/better lesser halfs/lovers etc can survive 4 hours of incessant banter on all things running related, then they are welcome too.

On a lovely crisp Feb morning several members of GCH fit4life hit the country roads around Craughwell for the third 5km time trial. As usual organisation was spot on, lots of water and pacers for every level. So a big thanks to Craughwell AC! I must be jinked as this was the second 5km I have missed due to injury so rather than being a lazy sausage with the Sunday paper I said I would head out and take some photos.
So here you go.

We’ve all seen them, usually while sitting in traffic listening to the whirr of the window wipers and waiting for the car’s central heating to kick in. You are in the middle of wondering if you’ll stay awake long enough for the second episode of Corrie that evening, when a flock of high viz jackets and running tights pass you by. You shiver involuntarily at the thoughts of trotting around Westside on a dark Tuesday evening and wonder what these poor souls have done to deserve such a punishment.
