Also many congratulations to Tom Mc Donald of Listerlin, Patrick Bookle of Mullenakill, Breda Hennessy of Ballykenna Tullogher, William Forristal( son of Phyllis and Martin of Ballinlammy) who along with a friend set themselves a target of running 1,000 miles in 2012, as it turned out William achieved that magic figure when he completed the Dingle marthon earlier this year and he ran the Dublin city marathon on Monday in three hours and nine minutes.
