Barry MooreJul 24, 11:26pmGuide says there’s a repeat on S4C Friday night at 10
Mick HanneyJul 24, 10:48pmI watched it on S4C when it was on Sunday night. Great coverage - even if I didn't understand what was being said, apart from Brian McMahon's name lots of times :-)

The online version only displays in the UK. There is software you can download for a nominal fee or on trial which will make it look like you are in the UK. A quick google search gave me this one. Vpn Traffic. I haven't trialed it so can't vouch for it.
NIamh O CeallaighJul 24, 10:09pmWell done all! Superb results. Great to see Irish shirts up the front.
Has anyone had any luck watching the s4c coverage from Ireland?
patrick barryJul 24, 12:33amI have just watched it on the S4C catch up service

Not sure if it will work in Ireland.
cormac o ceallaighJul 23, 1:37pm Brillant results! That was one of the strongest mens teams of recent times. Plenty to build on there for next year.Super ascent time by Brian .Well done to all the runners who travelled over.
Jason KehoeJul 23, 12:03pmFantastic racing by all the lads. I hope you enjoyed the amazing atmosphere and the 5miles up and down. It's such a challenging race and the descent is a test of skill and physical endurance.

Savage running by Brian Mc' mixing it with the best on his début and Brian Furey shaving over 9 minutes off his 2008 time.

Brian O' ConnorJul 23, 8:10amWell done to all the Irish team. Ye did us proud for sure. Great race. Brian is a legend. To prove it check out a video on utube my brother got of him. It's called "Brian McMahon snowdon 2012" . Brian was at the finish line as i was only on the summit. Great to meet ye on the ferry this morning also. Well done again.

Rene BorgJul 21, 5:49pmThanks for the result Gerry, team resting in the hotel now after a dramatic day on the hill with pre-race favourite Andi Jones pulling out midway. Brian McMahon led to the top and was caught on the first third of the descent by Murray Strain and Robbie Simpson. Sadly he lost third spot only on the last k but we think he may gain consolation in having won the new "uphill sprint" - fastest man up the two staircases Allt Moses and Allt Criocht (spelling?).

Also running, for the 15th time, Tommy Galvin. 373rd in 1:56.

I put up some photos on Facebook:

Will see if I can upload them here when we get back from Llanberis.

Brian O' ConnorJul 9, 8:00pmhello Rene,
Ive entered already. We are travelling over on the thur night ferry and back on the sunday ferry also. We will walk the course friday. There are some English rock climbing friends of mine coming over to climb and support us, Accommodation is sorted also. Thank you for your help and hopefully we will meet up over there.
Kind Regards,
Rene BorgJun 30, 10:17amhi Brian,

I'm taking the Irish team (names to be confirmed here shortly) over this year and with us will be travelling Amidou Dembele, Tommy Galvin and possibly one more person, so at least a contingent of 11 by the looks of it.

We are going over on the Dunlaoghaire ferry leaving just after Noon and returning around 10 on Sunday. if you book yourself in, I may be able to get you onto the transportation that the organisers are sending to pick us up.

Most hotels are booked out now, so hope you have accommodation sorted, otherwise email me (rene at championseverywhere dot com) and I can give you some advice on places to stay. We're in the Padarn Lake Hotel but it is full AFAIK. We are also booked into The Heights restaurant for a healthy meal the day before. There's limits to how many they can take but if interested in going, let me know and I'll see if they have space. Dinner will be around 20:00 and there'll be a short walk up the early parts of the course before it.

Also if anyone else is going and wants to be in touch feel free to email me. We can't promise we can help with arrangements as we had to book the team in early but I'll do my best for you.

Brian O' ConnorJun 29, 6:22pmHello, are there many Irish doing the snowdon race this year?
Rene BorgMar 22, 9:37amEntries for the Snowdon race are almost sold out. 150 yesterday, 100 left today, so best book now to avoid disappointment for the Irish runners planning to do this:
