Eimear Hoare’s brother Martin of Celbridge AC and Courtney McGuire (Clonmel AC) have both claimed their first AAI National Marathon Championship title at the 2022 Irish Life Dublin Marathon.
Earlier this year the Celbridge athlete was the second man home on the Irish team, at the Rotterdam Marathon, finishing in 26th position with a time of 2:20.31. He also took third place overall in the Dublin Half Marathon last month. He has described today as a fairytale, ‘“It’s still sinking in to be honest. I can’t really believe it, it’s a fairytale”.
