More than 40,000 women from around the country and the world gathered at Fitzwilliam Square in Dublin this afternoon for the annual Flora Mini-Marathon.

Annette Kealy from Howth in Co Dublin won this year's race when she crossed the finish line at St Stephen's Green in a time of 35 minutes and 45 seconds.

It is an extra special day for the mother-of-four from the Raheny-Shamrock running club as she is celebrating her 40th birthday.

I was there taking photographs and I must admit that seeing 40,000 women in the same place at the same time is an amazing sight and a very noisy experience but it was great fun. To give you some idea just how big this really was I am uploading photographs showing the rows of buses parked along the grand canal, there must not have been a bus left for anything else throughout the island of Ireland.
