Blackrock A.C. Out In Force Over The Weekend – Weekly Round-Up

Blackrock A.C. members were out in force over the weekend taking part in events in Dublin, Clare and Valencia, Spain. 

Cabinteely Parkrun Takeover

A big thank you and well done to everybody who took part in the Blackrock A.C. Cabinteely Parkrun takeover on Saturday. It was a very blustery day but the atmosphere was brilliant and the club was very well represented with over 50 members and some dogs taking part. 

There were some brilliant runs on the day with Blackrock A.C. representing positions 1, 2 and 3 in the men’s results. Ted Burke came home in 19:38, Barry Thornton in 20:12 and Ger O’Toole in 20:21. 

Louise Dobbins from Crusaders A.C. was first home for the women in 23:48, with Michelle Langan, Blackrock A.C. following in 24:13 and Paula McCabe, Cambuslang Harriers in 24:27.

In the all-important age-graded results, Gráinne Grennan claimed first for the club, with Ger O’Toole and Dee O’Mahony coming in second and third respectively. 

Well done also to Blackrock A.C. member Caiman who got a PB on the day.


Thanks to the Blackrock A.C. member volunteers for making it happen. Johnny Sheehan, who was race director on the day, as well as Aideen Sheehan, Antoinette Healy, Arik Var, Barry Thornton, Claire O’Connell, Conor Murphy, Cyril Treacy, Daniel Mourenza, Dervla Batt,  Emer Murphy, Gerry Flaherty, Ger O’Toole, Hugh Finlay, James Dowling, Janel Gleich, Marie Therese McCoy, Mary Butler, Mairéad Walsh, Melanie Pape  Miguel Flores, Pierre O Conghaile, Sarah Conroy, Ted Burke and Valeria Sofia. 

Thanks also to Neil Clancy and Róisín O’Shea, who should probably consider becoming members also 🙂
