Youghal hosts another successful Emer Casey Memorial Run

On an ideally calm evening for running and walking, another successful Emer Casey Memorial 5k road race took place in Youghal on 12 April.  Almost 350 athletes competed for the top prizes with many more walkers participating and enjoying the fine evening.  At the finish, it was a double win for Leevale Athletics with Andrew Sheehan (pictured above) and Sinead O’Connor (right) taking the top spots.  See the full results list here with thanks to the Youghal Athletics Club.   And enjoy some fantastic action shots of the evening here courtesy of Dave O’Brien Photography and photos of the prize giving here with thanks to Cork Athletics. The Foundation would like to thank all the hard working volunteers who made the race possible again this year and the people of Youghal for their unstinting support.  The goodwill of all who participated was palpable in the Community Centre afterwards as everyone tucked into the well-earned refreshments. It’s hard to believe that this was our 12th annual run! Well done everyone!
