Well done Jill, and thanks for taking the trouble to offer some encouragement to an old bloke who was struggling a bit(me!)as you were walking through the park with your boquet afterwards.

A long time time since we had an Irish athlete winning an international marathon, male or female.

Congratulations Jill on tremendous victory in Spain and also on excellent pb. Keep it going.
