Dungarvan: Great things can be achieved when people join together

Race - I know that the Stook 10 mile race took place a week ago. This event involved a huge effort on behalf of the groups who’s thought up the event, the people who organised the event and the support that they received from the club members and the goodwill of the people of the parish . It cannot be said often enough that the 10 mile Stook Race was successful because of the hard work of the organising clubs and the unselfish committment of a huge number of volunteers. The choice of the route for the race was very challenging and some of the participants were so taken by the view from the top of Stook that they were tempted to stop and enjoy the view. It was great that runners from the Dungarvan area were awarded for their achievements. First local woman home was Evelyn Bollard and first local man was Eddie Fenlon. This was an amazing event for a small village like Dungarvan but the Village came up trumps as hosts. The village hall was a super venue and was buzzing with activities such as an entry station to a food hall for athletes and supporters. Other facilities in the village, The Ouncel house, and through the generousityof retired shopkeeper Jim McCarthy the village once more had a shop. All that helped to add to the atmosphere of the day. This athletic challenge is destined to become an annual event.
