Former Olympian Lizzie Lee of Leevale AC in Cork won the marathon with an incredible time of 34.18, followed closely by Laura Shaughnessy from Dundrum South Dublin AC with 34.30, hot on her heels was Siobhan O’Doherty of Borrisokane AC, who finished in 34.55. The champion runner said that having a baby just under a year ago spurred her on to win the marathon.
