Darragh Courtney’s 100m final was very tightly contested on the finish line with Darragh coming out the eventual winner!! Ciara McCarthy had a stormer of a race & led from the gun to finish in first place!!  Trevor Leen had a very good throw & placed in an event which he hasn’t competed in a while.  The girls relay of first & second class had a long wait for their relay but were delighted to be the gold medal winners on the day & they all ran exceptionally well.
Thank you to teacher Deirdre Courtney for co-ordinating the children on the day & the many parents who helped out.

Lakes of Killarney Half & Full Marathon 2013

The first Lakes of Killarney Half & Full Marathon took place on Saturday 18th May 2013 and was represented by St.Brendan's AC runners in both distances FULL & HALF Marathon.
Derek Griffin completed the Full Marathon in 3:29, Artur Nowak completed the half in 1:44, Paul Harris, finished his FIRST half marathon in 2:07 and Kirstie Nowak finished the half in 2:29. Congratulations to Paul on this milestone.

There were a total of 330 people competing in what were favourable weather conditions on a spectacular course within Killarney National  Park. Without doubt, this was a very pleasant and not too difficult route, with many runners making it their first full or half marathon.
