A great day for the Celebration Run

10K start.
On a perfect morning for running some 176 people competed in today's Celebration Run representing St Joseph's NS 60th anniversary and Kilcullen 700, writes Brian Byrne.

The first three home in the 5K, with 124 registered competitors, were Larry McCormack, Donny Maloney, and Rob Fitzgerald, and the first three women in the same category were Olivia Archbold, Mary Egan, and Barbara Chmura.

In the 10K Michael Gill, Seamus Cadiff and Stephen Nibbs were the first three home, with Emma Boylan (3rd overall), Nichola Charles, and Gabrielle Aspell with the same time as Sarah Baars, the first three-placed women.

5K start.
After the race, David Dempsey, Principal at St Joseph's NS, thanked all involved in organising, supporting, and participating in the event.

He especially thanked the sponsors who included Eurospar, Gilltown Stud, Doyles Funeral Directors, Gaffney Woodwork, Bardons, K Leisure, Woodbine Books, The Spout, Walls of Kilgowan, Nolans Butchers, and Bank of Ireland.

After presenting the winners with their prizes, and the raffle prizes, David Dempsey was presented with a framed copy of the Kilcullen 700 logo by Sabina Reddy, in appreciation of the school's support of the town's celebration of the 700th anniversary since the first bridge at Kilcullen was built.
