Update on the Cork BHAA 'Iniscarra' 4 mile race... CANCELLED!!
With all of the news reports about the recent flooding near Iniscarra, some people have been asking whether this will impact on the race on Sunday or even if the race has been cancelled.

The race is in a spot called Ballyanly which is about 3 kms to the north-west of Inniscarra on high ground. It is not near any major rivers although I suppose the possibility of some pools of standing water along the race route can't be ruled out.

If the flooding has any real impact then it will probably be on access routes to the race. In the preview for the race, the routes given used the river crossing by the Anglers Rest pub which may well be closed.

If you aren't sure on the day, you might be better going via Blarney.

From Cork, take the main Limerick road (N20) and turn off for Blarney onto the R617. Keep going straight, through Blarney and then onto Tower and through it. Eventually, you come to a T-junction with the R579 in Cloghroe. Turn right here and you'll see the turn-off left at Blairs pub about 2 kms later.
