Leahy Third In BHAA 5K

Brian Leahy took third place in the BHAA DCC 5K in Irishtown on Friday night.

Leahy clocked 16 minutes 21 seconds for third place as the race was won by Conor Burke in 16 minutes seven seconds.

Orla Gormley came home in 20 minutes 17 seconds while Dave Gargan posted 21 minutes 20 seconds. Valerie Clinton clocked 25:10 and Dave Brady posted 2:13.

Editor Comment: With the only major international track and field event to be held in Dublin on the same night, it has to be remarked as a strange decision by the BHAA to hold an event with such a clash.

Particularly as a number of clubs have worked with the Morton Games organisers to promote their event.
