Hiko Tonosa, announced his arrival on the Irish athletics scene in some style and Irish cross-country champion Shona Heaslip looked unstoppable at the annual Autumn Open Cross Country held at Abbotstown today (Sunday October 22). Elsewhere this weekend, Mick Clohisey finished fifth at the Great South Run and Ian Bailey and Shileen O’Kane were the winners at the Garmin Mourne Skyline Mountain Trail Race.
Asking Ireland’s greatest ever marathon man John Treacy about the next sub-2:10 marathon, he poses another question: “Why do we not have fast 10km runners? That’s where it starts.”In 1984, Treacy, running his first ever marathon, took a silver medal at the Los Angeles Olympics with a time of 2:09:56. He would run ten marathons in total with a 2:09:15 best from Boston in 1988. In his earlier career, he also set Irish records of 13:16.81 for 5000m and 27:48.7 for 10,000m.
Shona Heaslip and Kevin Dooney are amongst the leading athletes ready to open their cross country season on Sunday, while Mick Clohisey heads to Portsmouth for the Great South Run. Irish cross country champion Shona Heaslip of Riocht AC leads the local entry at Sunday’s Autumn Open Cross Country in Abbotstown (2.0) – the first test for anyone aiming to make the Irish team for the European Championships next December.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
