I'm a Yorkshire man living in southern Ireland for over 22 years and was very proud to come and take part in the marathon. Me and my wife stayed for the weekend in a hotel a short walk from the city. The buses to the university on the morning of the race ran like clock work from the train station. Unfortunately the weather wasn't on are side as it rained non stop but didn't dampen the spirits of the crowd the race and the hole event. I enjoyed the the event so much and can't wait to come back. The only thing I would fault was the spectator buses to the different points on route took too long. My wife spent most of the day stick on one in traffic. Hopefully this was just because of the weather on the day. Fantastic race other than that.
