Fiach Hartigan looks like he will be a flier like his mother, Anna and Ella Moyles burned up the cinder track like their mam did in her prime, Niamh, Grace and Sean Summerville all did the sprint and distance races as well as the long jump and turbo javelin and now wonder why their dad makes such a big deal of an Ironman and great performances too from first timers Mae Fahy, Annie Lynch and Sara Duffy and from 2 more of our experienced campaigners Hilliary Larkin and Ben Foley in the various events – well done all!!!
