Sunday, 15th September - Individual & Team Medals at the Donegal 5k Championships - Report

Donegal Championship 2013

Inishowen AC confirmed themselves as one of the top athletics clubs in Donegal following Masters Men Gold and the Senior Ladies Bronze at the Donegal 5k Championships in Letterkenny on Sunday, 15th September. With strong winds and driving rain, it was one of the more difficult Championship races. But a racing crowd of over 300 turned out on the day, and as usual the yellow vests of Inishowen AC were prominent. Pauric McKinney was the top Inishowen AC finisher with a 15.52 finish, just missing out on Individual Bronze but winning Masters Gold. Culdaff athlete Martin Mooney followed McKinney over the line in 17th place with a 17.17 finish. Joe McKinney continued the scoring for IAC with a 17.37 finish. In the Ladies race, Theresa Doherty was the top Inishowen performer with a 19.40 finish. Sheila Doherty was next best, running to a 21.30 finish.

Well done to all the Inishowen AC athletes who turned out on the day, and congratulations to those who came home with individual and team medals. No doubt a successful cross country season lies ahead for the Club.
