Kildare man, Pa Monaghan, opened his season in style this morning (Friday January 20) when finishing second in the Dubai Wheelchair Marathon.

The Caragh native had a ding dong battle with Rafa Betello of Spain before giving way just yards from the finishing line.

It was a brilliant start for Monahan in this his first outing of 2017 in what promises to be a hectic season ahead.
