Guest Post: For Aoife... by Pat Walsh

** For Aoife ** 🥰😘

The best of my friends have failed.

The very best have failed spectacularly.

All have got off their ar*e and tried again.

Not easy but we dream and go again.🤩🤩

If you never get off the couch of course you never fail

If you don't dare to dream you can never achieve f*ck all.👌

Please read the message in the picture. It sums up every runner who has ever toed the line at the start of a race.

All of Cork is proud of Aoife Cooke and what she has achieved.

My friend the Olympian and happy to know her.

We will put the great Cork Comfort blanket around her and no doubt she will be back, faster and stronger than ever.

All of Ireland is proud of Aoife and Fionnuala Mc Cormack and her heroic 25th place

2 Countries  (Ireland and Australia) are proud of Sinead Diver, fine daughter of Belmullet for her 10th pace finish.

Lads drive on, do the best you can. Thankfully sport can lift us out of the mediocrity and give us a purpose.

"but who does actually strive to do the deeds, who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions, who spends himself in a worthy cause, who at best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat."
