Rás na hÉireann 2015
Dunleer AC hosted Rás na hÉireann cross country on Sunday February 22nd 2015 at the historic Oldbridge Estate (Battle of the Boyne) course near Drogheda, thanks to the kind permission of the OPW. Coca Cola kindly provided sponsorship for the event once again.
"The Rás" as it is affectionately known celebrates the life of Larry Mc Guill who dedicated his life to the promotion of athletics and sadly passed away in 2011. The Larry Mc Guill cup was presented to the first senior man home, David Scanlon Rathfarnham. Louis Duffin was also remembered for his commitment to Rás na hÉireann with the awarding of the Louis Duffin Cup for the first Dunleer man home, Darragh Greene.
Dunleer AC moved the Noel Mc Guill/Sandra Floyd event to the Rás date in order to incorporate the two events and provide a fitting tribute to the memories of Noel and Sandra also. Winners of the Noel Mc Guill Cup were North East Runners, while the winners of the Sandra Floyd Cup were Dundrum South Dublin.
Dunleer AC was delighted to welcome all friends and supporters of Dunleer AC, Rás na hÉireann and cross country running to Oldbridge, to the best cross country course in the country.
