The night af­ter win­ning over 8km at Lom­bard­stown, Ban­teer run­ner Eoin Su­grue showed his re­mark­able pow­ers of re­cov­ery when tak­ing an­other first at th e Lis­car­roll 10km.

Twelve months ago Su­grue had fin­ished sec­ond in the Lis­car­roll event, held in mem­ory of lo­cal man Tom Fitz­patrick, in a time of 34:59 but on this oc­ca­sion the 44-year-old was over a half-minute faster when win­ning in 34:22.

Jeremiah Shee­han, a ju­nior ath­lete from Lis­mire, took sec­ond place in 35:56 with David Han­lon of Lim­er­ick AC fin­ish­ing third in 36:30.

Af­ter a hard-fought vic­tory the week be­fore at th e Route2Crook, Har­ring­ton had an eas­ier win as his time of 35:38 gave him over two min­utes to spare over run­ner-up, Ciaran Bouse of the Ea­gle club. f r om
