Three Superb Mountain Race Events on Sat. 9th Feb. 2019

Irish Mountain Runners Association Millstreet was the true focal point for numerous energetic Athletes from 6:00 am until Sat. Night when no less that three highly regarded Mountain Races took place.   The first group of Athletes were transported to Kealkil in West Cork where at 8am they began their journey to Millstreet.  Gavin Byrne of Dublin was the first to reach the finishing flag just before 3pm.   A second group were transported to Ballyvourney from where they set off for Millstreet.  Official tracking was provided where one could follow on a special phone app at what stage the various participants were.  And at 1pm a group of almost one hundred climbed Clara Mountain.  Here we share some 24 images from what was a wonderfully sporting occasion in Millstreet.  Splendid refreshments were provided in Millstreet GAA Community Hall.  Click on the images to enlarge.  (S.R.)
