Another great race, by Limerick Triathlon Club
The 28th Kilkee Hell of the West Triathlon was a huge success this weekend despite the challenging weather conditions. The spectators were out in force, friends & family of the athletes were lining the beach and roads of Kilkee to cheer their loved ones on. Over 46 different triathlon clubs were represented; which is a huge compliment to the Limerick Triathlon Club that people traveled from near and far.
Bryan Keane was first over the line in a time of 2hr 9mins. A former Eurpopean Champion, Brian is returning from injury and chose this race as his first Olympic distance race back. Keane is well on his way to recovery having a phenonminal run in the tough conditions. Shane Scully, from Nenagh, was second over the line. Shane had a very strong cycle and led out the run, however that was not enough to hold off Keane.
