Kathleen B Curran, who began working for the Galway Harbour Board after she left school, would rise spectacularly through the ranks to become the combined Harbour Master and secretary to the Port Authority (an unheard of position for a woman in Ireland). She was intimately involved in all of the major events which the harbour witnessed during the latter part of the last century. But I am sure she took particular pleasure, as an Irish language enthusiast and a great admirer of the poet WB Yeats, when Galway was picked out to play a role in the great poet’s funeral.
The Salthill/Knocknacarra minor footballers, under the guidance of team manager Anthony Finnerty and selectors Seán Murphy and Brendan Keane, proved too strong for Barna when they won the West Board minor title easily on a score-line of 4-14 to 3-11 in Pearse Stadium on Saturday.
Mayo AC were represented by 16 runners at the National 10k Championships which took place in the Phoenix Park Dublin recently. The race was run in conjunction with the annual Great Ireland run, with 5,000 participants taking part in 10k, 5k, and Junior races. The one lap 10k course is relatively fast up to the five kilometre mark, but has extremely tough uphill sections from there to the finish. Conditions were good as almost 500 club athletes competed for individual category and team medals.
