Jacob Buchreiter, a young Austrian student spending his summer working at Island View Stables in Moneygold, won the annual 3 mls. Hospice Race in Mullaghmore in a time of 17.45. The race as always was well supported by the local community with athletes like Jimmy Currid and Mary Gilmartin prominent. First lady home was Patricia O’Hagen, St Peter’s, Lurgan (formerly Patricia O’Callaghan from Enniskillen).
The walking section was well populated by local families and Hospice supporters. The Sherlock family from Ballisodare took the first three places and the next three were occupied by the Dunlop family from Kinlough.
The organisers are grateful to John McHugh of the Pier Head Hotel for allowing the use of his facilities and providing tea/coffee afterwards. Thanks also to the Gardaí and the volunteers who helped to run the event. Full results can be found on www.tirchonaillac.ie .
