Cloyne Commons Challenge;

Race number 2 of the 5 race series took place on Sunday 28th December with 218 runners taking part. A slightly colder day than day one but running conditions were very good and the large turnout were eager to rid themselves of the Christmas excesses.

Race number 3 will take place on Sunday 25th January again with a 9.30am start. Parking is available at both of Cloyne GAA fields and the registration of €4 will be taken at Harty’s Bar.

Sean McGrath of Churchtown South has been victorious in the first 2 races and for a full list of finishers and their times check out the Cork running blog,

Training 2015.

Training for all club players commenced on Tuesday night last 13th January at 7.30 pm in the Old field and what a night it was, high winds snow and rain were the order of the night but it didn’t deter the lads who put in a great effort as usual.

Munster Council Grant;

We received a grant from the Munster Council this week, they are doing a great job redistributing gate receipt money throughout the Provence.

32 clubs in Cork were in receipt of money as well as €3.75m going towards the redevelopment of Pairc Ui Chaoimh.

So it’s great to see your hard earned money that you spend to follow Cork filtering back down to help clubs develop their facilities.
