Photo of the 1984 Cork City Marathon...

This photo taken by Joe Healy is of the 1984 Cork City Marathon and the runners are turning onto the South Mall after coming down the Grand Parade.

Do you recognise anyone? Any names? Leave a comment.

John Walshe sent on the following info...

According to the race programme, the names of those identified in the photo include;

Seamus Casey (732) from Cobh, running with the Navy. Seamus is now very involved with the Cork BHAA and on that day in 1984 finished in 3:02:22.

John Moloney (473) from Waterford, finished in 3:10:28.

Robert Curtin (911) from Foxrock, Dublin, finished in 3:15:28.

John O'Kelly (654) from Glounthaune, finished in 3:18:55.

That was the controversial BLE Irish championship and Olympic trial where the late Jerry Kiernan was disqualified - full story and results elsewhere on your site.
