Eyeries 5 mile road race…Saturday 8 November 2014….This new race in Eyeries in West Cork got a huge turnout with well over 200 taking part. Club member Mark Gallagher was one of the organisers who put a huge amount of work into organising this new race in his home village and it was great to see it paying off.

2nd Nov…Eagle AC finish 5th in Cork Senior Mens Cross Country Championships

The Cork Senior Cross Country Championships were held near Riverstick on Sunday the 2nd of November. With some of the top runners in Cork taking part in the mens race, it was always going to be very unlikely that the club would medal but an effort was made all the same to field a team and have the club represented at the main cross country event in the county for the year.
