This weekend was a first for the club because Karen McManus and Geoff Rooney met at club training. Love started on a Ladder Session or on Death Hill, and wasn’t scuppered when Karen used to beat Geoff on the Speaker Connolly lap. So it is the first true Bros Pearse AC wedding.
A good number of the original gang were down there to celebrate the day with the most adorable of couples. Both Geoff and Karen have been with us since the early days.
They are great club people and whilst we have missed Geoff a lot in recent years with his work commitments, I know that his friendship and undoubted wit and banter was something the club benefited greatly from when he was around. I also know that the club played a big role in his life, and not just with him meeting Karen.
You can’t but love Karen. A great talent , a fabulous smile, and I am sure a brilliant teacher. Her battle with the 4 hour barrier in the marathon and her eventual joy and relief when she did do it, is one of the most enjoyable stories that I watched over the years.
The whole club wishes these two lovely people a long and happy life as Mr and Mrs McManus Rooney. Enjoy the day and the honeymoon and make sure you are back in Cherryfield in a few weeks time!
