A SMALL but mighty group of Boyne AC athletes were among a field of almost 1,20 entrants for the Jingle Bells 5k race, hosted by Donore Harriers in the magnificent Phoenix Park on Saturday last.

Running alongside Santa and plenty of his elves, the atmosphere on the day was truly festive and senior member Rebecca Carolan gained a new PB with another strong run to cross the finish line in a time of 22:18, while son Harry, making his 5k debut, ran a great race to finish in a time of 25:37.

Clubmate Niamh Bergin, also running well, crossed the line at the 31-minute mark.

The Boyne AC agm took place recently, with a newly elected committee in place for the coming year, as follows:

Chairman - Brian McGuinness; Vice-Chair - Robbie Faulkner; Secretary- Deirdre McTeggart; Treasurer - Anon, PRO - Rebecca Carolan; Registrar - Keith Byrne; Competition Secretary -Barbara Kelly; Child Welfare Officer - Dolores Kahn. Club Captains - Niamh Kelly & Oisin O'Gibne.
