The Councillor was speaking after completing the Duathlon, a 2.3 mile run, 9 mile Cycle and finally another 2.3 run.

Speaking to Newry Times, McGinn said that despite the outbursts of rain it was a demanding but enjoyable event for all the participants.”Many thanks to those from the local Bessbrook Community who came out to support and cheer us all on. Ultimately everyone got home safe and sound and thanks to all who ensured that.”

“It was great to see stewards including my colleague Cllr Turlough Murphy and members of the Camlough Community Association and Feile Camlocha Group helping out on the night, which is what true community partnership is, and I must say the tea and refreshments in the Bessbrook Institute were very welcome.”

Summing the Model Duathlon up, McGinn added, “A great event. A truly memorable sporting and community night.”
