He will be there, as usual, on Thursday night, taking entries, and
inputting them into the laptop, making sure the results are correct.
Last week he was at the CIT track, for the Graded Leagues, he again
oversaw operations. Just as he did last Saturday, and on each of the
two previous weeks, at the Munster Schools T&F Championships.

has, for many years, been an outstanding Technical Director.
For a man who achieved so much, all the way to an Olympic semi-final,
he now gives back equally, if not more, to the sport that has been
enriched by his involvement for close on half a century. In case
you didn’t know (and he won’t tell you), the following are his
achievements in this particular race.
