Subject to ratification, Michael Harty, East Cork AC, broke the Irish Masters M40 record, at last night's Bob Heffernan & Mary Hanley 5k Road Race, in Enfield, Co Meath. Michael ran 14:20, for third place, behind Paul O'Donnell (DSD AC), 14:00, and Peter Somba (Dunboyne AC), 14:17.  Michael's time was one (1) second inside Brian Maher's previous record of 14:21

Setting the new record last night must have provided Michael with some satisfaction after last month's Streets of Kilkenny 5k, where, running 14:14, Michael was credited with breaking the record, only for the organisers to issue a statement, some days later, disclosing that the course had been found to be short, so the 'record' set that day cannot stand
