Thanks 2012 Committee

As this year’s committee take hold of club affairs for 2013, it’s time to say thanks to the 2012 committee who did such a fantastic job in maintaining the day to day running of the club, including the organisation of the Kilfinane 5 mile which proved to be a great success.

Judging by new members alone 2012 was certainly a very successful year for the club. Michael Halpin has continued his excellent work in developing the club website which continues to provide a catalogue of club events and news. Thanks also to all of our club members who ensured our club colours were to the fore across a range of events from cross country to marathon distance.
