Our team which consisted of Tom Lupton, Laura Shaughnessy, Caoimhin MacMaolain, Rory O’Connor and Ian Conroy.had an emphatic victory over a team whixh came down from the north by a margin of 16 minutes. Liz Wheeler was competing for the team which finished second and Clive Quinn help guide his team into 3rd place. Sonya McConnon got a late call up and ran a fine leg to help her team into 4th,. 30 teams took part.
