There was confusion, shock and dismay this morning as Newry woke up to no photographs of athletes from Newry City Runners with their medals for taking part in the Dublin Marathon which took place yesterday it has been revealed.

The athletes from the club are infamous for posting a photograph of every minor achievement; one woman posted a photograph last week when she returned home from the shop with a pint of milk and a McCann’s pan loaf.

A Dublin Marathon official confirmed that 70% of the athletes from Newry City Runners are yet to complete the 26.2 mile course after several of them where seen calling into various public houses along the way.

One club insider told us that they nearly killed each other afterwards when they had a knees-up to celebrate travelling to Dublin with good intentions of actually doing the run.
