The annual Scoil Ailbhe Fun Run took place on Friday evening, May 9th.Â Following 4 miles of the popular Seskin route, the fun run attracted nearly 350 runners, walkers and even a few crawlers!! People turned out in all sorts of gear and some of the celebrities who attended included Spiderman and Scooby-Doo!!Â These caused great consternation along the route, as people sought their autographs!! Winner of the the adult male section was Liam Shanahan, who ran a phenomenal race in record time. His two sons were justifiably proud. The leading lady home, Carmel Fitzgibbon, also had a terrific run, and was cheered on by her son, Conor. First amongst the primary school children was Adam Daly of 5th class.Â Adam is a fine athlete, as well as a great speller, and comes from a great tradition of runners in his family.
The event was organised by a committee of teachers and parents, who worked tirelessly to ensure the success of the event. The highlight of the evening for many were the refreshments at the end back in the school hall. It was a well-deserved treat for all concerned.Â This money will be used to further the IT programme in the school, and to maintain the current levels of equipment in the school.Â To all the parents who contributed, attended, and generally, spread the word, mÃle buÃochas.Â A huge word of thanks to the sponsors and friends of Scoil Ailbhe, who contributed so generously to our school for the event.Â NÃ neart go cur le chÃ©ile.Â Planning for 2015 is already underway – so keep the date in your diary free!!
Below are the results of the runners in the Scoil Ailbhe Fun Run, as accurately as they could be recorded on a wet night.Â Rain obliterated one or two times on the sheet – apologies if yours was one of these.
