Cork runners dominate at Limerick Half-Marathon...

The annual Great Limerick Run was held this year on Sunday the 6th of May 2018 with 723 in the full marathon, 1973 in the half-marathon and 4211 in the 6 mile. It also doubled up as the Munster Half-Marathon Championships.

In the Half-Marathon, runners from Cork were very much to the fore as they claimed several podium places.
