Weekly News Roundup - Week 7/2020


Laois Novice C.C.

The first of this year’s county road races took place in Vicarstown on Sunday last, the Novice race. The left overs of storm Denis left the runners  with a blustery day on the canal  but a great turn out from all clubs meant  more than 25 lined up for  the ladies race and 40 or more in  men’s . Portlaoise had a fantastic result with individual 2nd place for Aisling Bohan and 3rd place for Gillian Cunningham. The two ladies led the team along with Anna Duggan, Sandra Fitzpatrick, Sara O Hara and Cathy Mulhare who claimed top spot,  a marvellous start to the season  for the ladies. 

In the men’s Trevor Percy made a return to the local racing scene and ran a brilliant race to take 7th position. Paul Cuddy, Donal Heagney, Niall Collins and Paul McDonagh made up our men’s team on the day, well-done lads.
