The results of Ballycotton are up - despite bitterly cold conditions, a big Galway cotingent this year - especially from Loughrea, Athenry and GCH.

Best Galway result was Loughrea's TJ Beatty winning the M60 category in a highly creditable time of 1:12:59 (1:12:36 chip time).  The overall race was won by Vinny Mulvey who has now won it 3 times.  By all accounts he had a terrific battle with Tallaght's Sean Connolly but prevailled in the end.  Pauline Curley won the ladies race.

Well done to all that braved it out - the weather during the race was cold and very windy, but at least the wind was with you on the second half so it wasn't too bad.  I was down as Athenry but no panic I haven't transferred - they seemed to use my address as the club in the results.
