Sean O’Flynn, RIP

It is with great sadness to announce the passing of Sean O’Flynn who passed away unexpectedly on 10th Decemeber at his home in North Carolina USA , formally from Derrynane Road, Turners Cross, Leevale AC and Richmond University.
Sadly missed by all who knew him here in Leevale.

Sean ran a number of the early Ballycotton five-mile races in the late 1970s/early 1980s, finishing second to Liam O’Brien on a couple of occasions. His fastest was 24:49 at Shanagarry in 1980 (Liam 24:47). An all-time Cork marathon list compiled in 2018 shows Sean ranked fifth with his 2:19:05 from the Virginia Marathon of 1982 (his time would now place him sixth following Tim O’Donoghue’s 2:18:37 last June).
