Dick Hodgins...RIP

Another piece of sad news. It has been announced that Dick Hodgins of the Cork City Sports has passed away.... Notice.

As a member of Leevale AC, Dick was a fine athlete in his day recording 2:25 in his first marathon and won the National Marathon title in Galway in 1975 in a time of 2h 19m 46s.

He finished third in the first-ever Ballycotton '10' in 1978 and was runner-up to Liam O'Brien three years later in 1981.

In later years, he was one of the key people behind the organising of the Cork City Sports every year.
