ST. BRENDAN’S ATHLETIC CLUB: Causeway hosted a 5K road race on Sunday 6th April, with funds raised going to Recovery Haven. For an inaugural event, this race saw a high turnout and was well organised and supported for a first outing by the hosts, Macra Na Feirme. The nice weather played its part in encouraging participation as well over 100 people started out on the 5k run/walk. St Brendan's AC had a significant turn out and featured strongly in the top finishers – Ann Mc Glynn 1st Female over the finish line and Artur Nowak 3rd overall. Medals for all participants were much appreciated, as too were the refreshments which followed in Harty's Bar.  Good to see Club member Pat Sheehy back on the road. Another good performance came from local man and also St.Brendan's AC member Tom Scanlon, finishing 4th overall.
