All Ireland Juvenile “B” Track & Field Championships

Saturday next, 15th July in Tullamore sees the staging of the All Ireland Juvenile “B” Track & Field Championships for U/12 to U/16.  Following on from his performance in the “A” Championships Dylan McLoughlin will once again represent the club at these championships in the U/16 800mts and he will have nothing to fear against many of the same opposition.  We wish Dylan the very best of luck.

Munster Representative

Congratulations to Aisling Maher who has been selected to represent Munster at the Special Olympics National Games to be held in Dublin next year.  Aisling is well deserving of this accolade as she has trained consistently throughout the year culminating in winning a Munster title in Cork last month.  All her energy and focus will now be on winning a national title and no doubt the club will support her in every way to achieve that aim.
