The Irish National Masters T&F championships was another big success for Cork athletes, with thirteen titles, along with seven Silver and three Bronze medals coming back to Cork

There were seven medals for Leevale AC - Six Gold and a Silver. Next were St Finbarrs AC, with five medals - two Gold, a Silver and two Bronze, while Eagle AC garnered four Gold. Next were Midleton AC with two Gold, followed by Rising Sun AC with a Gold and a Silver, while Liscarroll AC (Silver), Riverstick-Kinsale AC (Silver) and Bandon AC (Bronze) collected one medal each.

Some of the most emphatic victories came in the final two races of the meet, the M50/55 5000m and the M60+ 5000m. The M50 race saw Eagle AC's Vivian Foley sit in behind the early leader, GCH's Gerry Carthy, with the two pulling away from the field. They were joined, after several laps, by Donore's Des Tremble. The trio continued pulling from the field, until, with two laps to go, Vivian made his decisive move and strode away, with Tremble also moving ahead of Carthy. Coming around the last bend, Foley too time to wave to family/supporters outside the fence, and eased up coming to the line, clearly unaware that he had come within a second or two of breaking the Irish M50 5000m record.

The final race was a 'tour de force' from Strive AC's (Ulster) Tommy Hughes, who ran 16:47.59, lapping the entire field, and break the 29 year old M60 5000m record of 17:02. ....To rub salt in the wounds of the other competitors, yesterday, Tommy broke the M60 10 Mile World record, and is running the Larne Half-Marathon next Saturday.

Gilshinan and Hughes highlight golden day in Santry


Anne Gilshinan (Slaney Olympic) and Tommy Hughes (Strive Running Club) highlighted an action-packed day with respective W55 3,000m and M60 5,000m Irish records at the Irish Life Health National Masters Athletics Championships in Morton Stadium (September 6th).

Anne Gilshinan of Slaney Olympic smashed the Irish over-55 3000m record, clocking 10:36.26 to win gold in Santry as did Tommy Hughes cracking 17 minutes with 16:47.59.

A commanding run from Ciara Hickey (Bros Pearse) saw her take W40 3000m gold with a superb solo run of 10:05.17.

David Clarke (North Belfast Harriers) only took up running in his 50s and sprinted to M60 1500m gold in 4:41.05. Martin Cunningham (Tír Chonaill AC) celebrated jubilantly winning the M40 Men’s 1500m in 4:22.78.

Avril Dillon (Dundrum South Dublin AC) crossed the line to win the W40 Women’s 100m in 12.94 and mark herself as the fastest female sprinter on the day.

Jonathan Carleton (Ballymena & Antrim) was the fastest sprinter of the day in the M40 category winning the 100m in 11.51.
