22 May, 2010Thanks to everyone for running today, the volunteers and the weather. Some really fancy dresses with Gordon Douglas being voted as the fanciest. Photos to follow and some great shots from Brian O'Doherty from the mountain rescue teams here: http://picasaweb.google.com/brianodoherty/100522FairyChase?authkey=Gv1sRgCNubotm80Ky75gE
Thanks to aisling Coppinger for organising the social side (music, balloons, room, food, prizes, etc.).
Congratulations to Crusaders (men) and Rathfarnham (women) on winning the Irish club championship titles.
Thanks also to the mountain rescue volunteers who had a busy day as well as managing the traffic, marshalling the summit, demarking the course and providing much needed cold lemon drinks at the finish.
Peter Kernan, Joe Bent, Caitlin Bent, Tara Whyte and Catherine Lyons bridged the 30 years gap by competing in 1980 and in 2010.
