Colm Sheehan was the first Leevale finisher at today’s Charleville Half. Colm finished 10th in 70:49, in what was a high-quality field that was led home by Martin Fagan. James Grufferty and Owen Casey also had good performances, 71:53 and 72:21, while John O’Connell and Darragh Canavan were inside the 75-minute mark.
In other recent results, there were two wins for Leevale yesterday. John Shine made a welcome return to action in winning the Rebel Run 5K in Ballincollig. John was followed home in 2nd place by Dave Comber. Also yesterday, Michelle Finn was the runaway winner of the Killarney Women’s 10K Mini-Marathon.
Last weekend, Mark Hanrahan comfortably won the inaugural John Buckley Sports 10-miler that was held in the Blackrock\Mahon area. The race, hosted by St. Finbarr’s AC, is a new addition to the calendar, replacing the Cork Half-Marathon that used to be held on the same weekend.
