Ten and a half thousand women take part in the Dublin Women's Mini Marathon.

Waiting for the event to begin thousands of women sang 'Molly Malone'. Rose of Tralee Brenda Hyland sounded the start of the race. Among those taking part were Ireland's Olympic hopefuls Carey May and Regina Joyce the country's leading middle distance runner.

The course was a loop that took the runners from St Stephen's Green out to Donnybrook through Belfield and back again.

Regina Joyce was first over the line back at St Stephen's Green in a new record time of 32.34 closely followed closely by Carey May. Americans Laura De Wald and Katy Schilly took third and fourth place. 

Angela Allen, a blind runner from Leixlip, was overjoyed at the finish line to be reunited with her guide dog.
