- At a recent
Munster Officers meeting, it was
proposed to abolish future Munster Road
Championships due to lack of support
from athletes. A growing trend where
athletes would prefer to run races in
their own counties has left these
Munster Championships with numbers
barely justifying holding such road
races in the future.
