A good weekend for Lucan Harriers

Some great performances by Lucan athletes

Lucan's Niamh Fitzgerald and Carol Kearney travelled to Athlone to take part in the Indoor National League.  Carol ran the 200m in a great time of 31 seconds and Niamh stormed to an over 40's Irish National Record in the 1,500m in a time of 4.46.

At the AXA Raheny 5 Mile, 27 Lucan athletes joined the 2,724 runners in the very popular annual road race.  There were some great performances with a new route in 2016 taking in St. Anne's Park.  Will Byrne and Patrick Holden finished in the top 100 and Breda Smyth was the leading Lucan Lady home with a well deserved PB.  Lucan Men finished in tenth in team competition with Lucan Ladies coming in twelfth.  8 fit4life athletes took part in the race with many of them taking part in their first 5 Mile race.

Lucan's Ciaran Dunne finished 3rd in the Men's Section of the Ballyfin 6k in County Laois, held on Sunday 25th January.
