[acidfree:5771 align=right size=250 title=""]Last weekend saw the Galway Meet and Train girls heading to Edinburgh to take part in the Great Winter Run 2011 on Saturday morning. This run took place in very snowy, icy conditions on a 5k amended route in Holyrood Park. This was the second year in a row that the course was altered due to severe weather. All the girls completed the course in very good times with Mary Connolly leading the Irish contingent home in an excellent time of 25 mins. This is yet another successful outing for the group and major plans are afoot for their 21st Birthday celebrations next year. This group was started by Edel Murphy in the early '90's and hundreds of women have run with the group over the years. In photo are Mary Mullins, Una Duggan, Mary Connolly, Sarah Kelly (ex GCH, but now studying in Edinburgh) Hilda McGrath, Teresa Geraghty, Mary McCann and Bernie Healy.
