Once again the people of Boyle and all the surrounding area came out in big numbers to take part in the annual Run Walk n Roll for Cancer Research . With almost 400 participants of all ages young and old running, walking , cycling, kids in buggies even the dogs on the street knew this event was on (anyone that was there will know what I mean when I was aptly interrupted by a ‘Wuff’ when i said dogs were welcome). All participants received well deserved medals and refreshments in the hall afterwards so it was a great social occasion.
First man home was Eastersnow/Croghan man Paul Little in a time of 20.10 with local Boyle teen Daniel Casey getting nearer winning every year in a close second. First lady was Croghan teen Kristy Mc Henry so it is great to see some great young runners coming up.
