Philip & Teresa Reign in CloghThe Clogh 5K road run and walk saw a healthy gathering to support the fundraiser for the local National school play area development. St. Abbans A.C. and local athlete Philip Roche was always in the leading group and when it came down to the final 500 metres it was the desire to succeed on home ground that prevailed as he opened up a clear lead from there to the finish, to clock a winning time of 17:34. The ladies event saw Teresa Agar register another win in a fine time of 18:34. Other members of the club to support the event included:- James Nolan, Dinny Whelan, Mark Wogan, Breda Mulcahy, Kevin Wilson, Oisin Ryan and Niall Egan.
