Ironman John

A special word of praise for John Mongan who competed in the Ironman on Sunday and had a brilliant race. John entered the sea in Salthill at 7am on Sunday morning in very bad conditions and swam 750m before completing 56 miles on the bike around Connemara in a howling wind and then ran 13.1 miles and was finished well before lunch time in a little over 5hrs. John truly deserves the title of Ironman as he has competed in a number of these events recently and is an inspiration to everybody in the club.
