5K Fun Run
Thanks to all who participated in and supported Good Friday’s Na Fianna 5k Fun Run. The sun broke through about 9am and held for the run. King of Na Fianna Strictly, Ciaran Heeney lead the warm-up, before guest of honour, Uachtarán Tofa Cumann Luthchleas Gael John Horan officially started the race. First home in the Mens’ section with a time of 17 mins and 6 seconds was Kieran Murray. Our own Lucy Skelly was the first Lady home with a time of 20 mins and 58 seconds, congrats to both. Huge thanks to the organising team and to all who helped out with stewarding and catering.
