Regina Casey wins 48th Hollymount Race

The 48th Hollymount Races took place Sunday 10th November.

This year there was a low turnout in numbers but the traditional coach of visitors from the Liverpool area was especially welcomed to boost numbers and spirits.

Congratulations to Regina Casey (GCH) who won the women’s 3k lap. Second place Colette Touhy (Mayo AC) was leading all the way with Regina hot on her heels but a fantastic sprint finish by Regina placed her first in 10:37, and Collette in second with a 10:45 finish. Elizabeth Egan (Liverpool Harriers) finished third in 11:07

In the Mens 10k Race John Byrne (Mayo AC) led from start to finish and took his first Hollymount 10k win in 34:12. Alan Ashton (Liverpool Harriers AC) was not far behind and hung on for second place in 34:56. Anto Devaney (Mayo AC) finished third in 36:57.
