Richie's memory honoured

THE ANNUAL Richie Young Memorial Race took place on Sunday morning at the Pink Rock. A total of 149 runners and walkers turned out to take part in the 5km race in which the winner is not the first person past the line but the person who runs closest to the time they predicted they would run at the start of the race.

Sean Murphy was the winner of the running section running a time of 17.59. Brian Lynch was second with a time of 30.02 and Antony O'Connor was third in 30.02. The event rose €795 for the charity Compassionate Friends and Aine Ryan spoke on behalf of the charity.
