Eagle team take Bronze in Munster Half-Marathon Championships

The Charleville Half-Marathon was held back on the 20th of September and it also doubled up as the 2015 Munster Half-Marathon Championships. While the individual and category results were released almost straight away, the results for the Munster Championships took a while longer longer to compile. They were released in the last week and they show that the Eagle AC mens O40 team took bronze in that category! Well done to Frank Hill, Colin O’Herlihy and Pat O’Connor who made up the team.
