Records were smashed at Parkrun Ireland on Saturday with a total of 3,587 running one of the 25 events on offer. Biggest was Marlay with 602, followed by Malahide 420 and St Anne's 279. In the North, there were a further 2,180 runners. Ormeau was the most popular with 258 finishers. That's a total on this island of 5,767 - the best things in life (and running!) clearly are free!

Big road race of the weekend was the Enniscorhty 10km, won by Martin Fagan of Mullingar in a time of 29 mins 40 secs. Over a minute behind was Clonliffe's Sergiu Ciobanu (pictured), with Clonmel's Kevin Maunsell a close third. First woman was Kilmore's Jackie Carthy.
