There was a double success for the husband and wife racing duo of Ciaran and Teresa Doherty at Friday night's Ballyshannon 5k.

Organised by Tir Chonall AC, it was a glorious night in Ballyshannon and the big crowd taking part ensured it was a hugely successful night.

James McFadden of Finn Valley AC was third in 15.54.

Teresa Doherty (nee McGloin) of Finn Valley AC was first female athlete and eighth overall in 16.30.

Teresa, a native of Kinlough, is a first cousin of Olympian Breege Connolly.
