The familiar setting of the main street in Hollymount village was the backdrop to the traditional November road races on Sunday afternoon. Sean Reilly and his team put on another well organised version of this popular annual event. It was the 52nd running this year - a fantastic and unique achievement - which once again took place around the familiar 3k lap.
With events in full swing the Galway Pride Festival is proving to be a great success and it has still got some amazing events coming up.
It was an historic day for Hollymount. There was a real buzz about the village as the 50th Anniversary International road races took place on Sunday. Conditions on the day were tough to say the least. It was a day for digging in, supporting, enduring and above all celebrating a unique event in Irish athletics. For a race that was 'baptised' in 1966, uisce played a big part in the day, not least during the short flood on the Kilrush loop. It never dampened the enthusiasm or enjoyment of participants, and reminded us that sport reveals the greatest of the human spirit. And we needed that reminder after recent events.
