Fantastic News

2 weeks ago my local football team (Lyre Rovers) managed to win promotion
to Div 1 of West Cork League following a play-off v Rosscarbery.
1-1 after extra time it went to penalties and I was lucky enough to slot home the winning pen and secure victory and promotion for our up and coming football club. Great Day and great end to the season.

But..the Fantastic News came a week later at 10.47pm on Tues 27th March when Mum gave birth to Oran Robert O Sullivan.
Bit of a marathon session in the labour ward but Oran and Mum
did fantastic and the lad weighed in at a healthy 8lb 15oz.

Last few weeks have been a bit of a blur, a few 3 mile morning runs while Oran is feeding never felt so good..


  1. Congratulations Diarmaid, great news indeed.

  2. Thank you Grellan.
    Big well done on your Ultra time.

  3. Congrats. That's fantastic!!!! (on both counts :) )

    1. Cheers Bricey

      I have learnt that you need fair stamina for a 3 week old baby!
      But, he is a good, easygoing fella.

      Impressive 20 mile run you had there..
      Go for a good time in Cork City Marathon - the pacers really help carry you along in a group.

    2. the question is what is a 'good time'! one month ago to complete it would have been good for me but after running sub 7:30 for a 20 mile training run reasonably comfortably I'm beginning to wonder what could happen!!! :)
