The 5 mile race from Goleen to Crookhaven - fairly flat all through, great location and great atmosphere and feed afterwards. Only pity was I had to leave and couldn't have a few pints! Really enjoyed the Great Island 10 in Cobh also.

Just noticed your poll, Looks like Midleton 5 is popular but having done quiet a few 5milers in recent years must say the gr8km in mitchelstown is one with great future especially as its situated in mid munster , thus having a great more mix of athletes, therfore, i'm voting mitchelstown with midleton a close second. marcel.
