Last Tuesday was a lovely May evening- perfect for the first instalment of the CNOC summer evening
series at Donadea. There were four courses- Long, Medium, Short and an adventure course. Eileen
Loughman was the course planner/Controller. The courses were planned to avoid the rougher terrain
so race pace was high.
The results were quite close in the adventure courses where David Collins beat the team of Fogarty
and Noonan for first place. A similarly close result in the long course saw a minute between first and
third place. Laurence Quinn beat his fellow competitors even while sustaining a crippling foot injury
towards the very end of the course.
Ruairi Long was a clear winner in the short course four minutes. Similarly Don O’Hanlon from BOC
won in a time of 50:40 nearly 5 minutes ahead of Roisín Long (AJAX).
