Moyne Athletic Club Notes 17.06.2018

 

 

 

Congratulations Aisling!

Well done to Aisling who won three gold medals at the 2018 Special Olympics Ireland Finals. This event was held over four days and the track and field competition was held in Morton Stadium over the Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

Aisling Maher had a busy three days competing for Team Munster in both the 100m and Turbo Javelin. Aisling qualified from her 100m heat on Friday and saw off her competitors on Sunday morning to take the gold medal in the 100m. Aisling had a busy weekend as she was also a crucial member of 4x100m Munster relay who saw off Leinster and the second Munster team to claiming gold. Aisling ran the third leg of the relay and the team ran a very fast 1.01 to claim the top podium position. As well as Aisling’s gold in the sprint events, Aisling also won the Turbo Javelin on Saturday. Well done Aisling for the great performance over the weekend!

Moyne AC Club Notes 10.06.2018

Munster Senior & Master’s Track and Field Championships, Castleisland Co. Kerry

The Munster Senior & Master’s Track and Field Championships were held in Castleisland Co. Kerry on ‘An Riocht’ AC.’s recently renovated track. The day proved to be a successful day for the club where we had two athletes crowned Munster Champions, a clean sweep of the medals in the O35 400m and several season and personal best performances. Eight athletes travelled down on the day to sport the Green and Gold jersey and Martin Flynn kindly made the trip to support these athletes.

 

The day began with the 100m where we had a Munster Champion in the O35 category with Kate Harrison. Kate ran a PB to claim the gold in a time of 14:06 and was followed closely by Ber Spillane in the silver medal position in a time of 14:94. Bridget Gleeson followed in the 800m where she won her age category and took a second off her PB to finish in a time of 2:46. This superb performance was replicated in the 200m where Bridget was 2nd in her age category in a time of 33:97.

Our two medallists in the 100m also featured in the 200m where Kate Harrison won this event in 29.40 followed by Ber Spillane in second position in a time of 31.65. Prior to this, Sarah Healy competed in the 200m Senior category and ran 29:34. These three athletes also competed in the 400m event later in the day. Sarah Healy ran a 65.87 400m in the competitive Senior competition and Kate Harrison, Ber Spillane and Edel Delaney claimed a clean sweep in the O35 400m.

Sharon Cantwell was our second representative in the middle distances and she ran a season’s best performance with a time of 5:44. Sharon and Ber had a busy weekend having taken part in the Dingle adventure race prior to this competition and credit must be made for the great performances for both athletes.

The final event on the track was the 4x100m for Senior and Master clubs. Moyne AC had a team competing in both categories. Sharon Cantwell and Sarah Healy were joined by Katie Bergin and Lorraine Healy in the senior relay where they placed 2nd in a time of 56 seconds. The Master team comprised of Kate Harrison, Bridget Gleeson, Edel Delaney and Ber Spillane where they finished in 2nd postion.

Community Games

The club hosted the Athletic Finals of the County Community Games on Sunday for the very first time and despite this being our maiden foray into this level of competition we were delighted with the response. We had such a variety of people doing amazing work throughout the day, willingly giving their time and help, that it would be impossible to name everyone without leaving someone out but you know who you are and we are deeply indebted to you for your support.  Our thanks must also go to our landowners for allowing us to use their fields for parking, which helped alleviate the traffic on the road.  With over 500 children taking part it was a big undertaking for the club and our congratulations to each and every child that competed – you did your mentors and parishes proud.  Congratulations also to the 21 children from our own parish who competed bringing back gold, silver, bronze and pewter medals to Moyne & Templetuohy.

Well done to all these excellent athletes in what were very tough conditions for this 10k competition. The 5k walkers took to the Burma route and well done to all who walked this route.

The day saw athletes of different fitness levels and ages compete alongside one another for a thoroughly enjoyable day. A special thank you must be paid to all the committee members and volunteers who worked tirelessly to ensure today’s success. From organising the carpark, registration, kitchen staff and provisions, stewards, starters, water station supporters and the support car, all our volunteers deserve a massive thank you.

Well done to everyone who attended this event and thanks to everyone who contributed so generously.

Club Notes

Competition Results
Tipperary Junior, Senior and Master’s Track and Field Championship, Templemore
The Tipperary Track and Field Championships took place in Templemore last weekend. The bright sunny afternoon provided a great opportunity for many of our athletes to attain PBs as well as having ten county champions along with the Junior and Master Ladies relays claiming gold in the 4x100m event.
The day started on a promising note where we saw Susan Fogarty compete in the High Jump where she claimed the bronze medal. Susan had a very busy day out, also competed in the 1,500m (placing 5th), shot (placing 2nd) javelin (placing 2nd, throwing 16.96) and the senior relay. In the junior Long Jump we saw Katie Bergin claim silver and in the senior Long Jump we had Aisling Maher and Sharon Cantwell going head to head. This competition went down to the wire and the difference between Gold and Silver came down to 1cm. In the final round Aisling and Sharon both jumped their best jump of the competition (4m) however, Aisling claimed gold on count-back. In the Shot, we saw Naomi continue her golden form with a throw of 6.76cm to claim gold in the O 40’s Shot Putt.

On the track, Moyne AC had big numbers running in the sprinting events. Much of the competitors compete in the Moyne League Track and Field and have season bests set prior to this event. The determination of our women was palpable and clearly evident on the final medal table.
The 100m saw Kate Harrison, Ber Spillane, Edel Delaney and Liz Power toe the line for the ladies Master’s event, with Sarah Healy and Aisling Maher competing in the women’s senior event and Kate Bergin and Aisling Dwyer competing in the junior competition.
In the 200m, Kate Bergin and Aisling Dwyer were 2nd and 3rd in the Junior Ladies, Aisling Maher, Sharon Cantwell and Susan Fogarty were 2nd, 3rd and 4th respectively and in the Master’s competition Kate Harrison, Ber Spillane, Edel Delaney and Liz Power competed. Ray Power competed in the Men’s O55 competition, winning his category.
It was gold and silver in the 400m Ladies in all three categories, including a bronze in the Master’s category. Aisling Dwyer and Shannon Boland competed in the junior category, Sarah Healy and Aisling Maher claimed gold and silver in the senior competition and Kate Harrison, Ber Spillane and Edel Delaney claimed the top three positions in the Master event.
In the longer distances we saw Orla Healy take the senior 3,000m title with Angela Fogarty taking the master’s 3,000m title. The ladies worked with one another for the first half of the race to set themselves up to run season’s bests. Angela also competed in the 800m just minutes before her 3,000m where she placed 2nd in her category. Bridget Gleeson also ran excellently in the 800mts to take 1 second off her PB to finish 1st in her category.
In the equivalent race for the men, Moyne had three participants, with Dylan Mc Loughlin finishing 3rd in the junior category, followed home by Nathan Bowe (who had just won the junior 400m competition) finishing 4th. Ray Power finished in 1st position in his category.
In the men’s 5k the field spread considerably and Liam Kelly ran excellently to finish in 3rd place with Patrick Bowe finishing first in the O45 competition. In the women’s 1,500m we had three competitors, Lorraine Healy, Sharon Cantwell and Susan Fogarty. All three girls ran season best performances finishing in 3rd, 4th and 5th respectively.
The relay saw gold for the junior and senior ladies and a silver and gold for the Master Ladies. Congratulations to all athletes involved on a terrific County Championship.

Inter-Schools Track & Field Competition

Schools from Kilkenny and Tipperary travelled to Moyne on Friday last to take part in the Moyne AC organised inter-schools track and field competition and though noted more for hurling rivalry than athletic rivalry, being so close to the county boundary added a little bit of spice to the occasion.  Whilst the weather did spoil things a little there was no doubting the intensity the children brought as they ran, jumped and threw for all their might.  Great competition was the order of the day as Moyne, Templetuohy, Rahealty, Galmoy and Urlingford National Schools competed against each other for the right to bring home the trophies for “Best Small School” and “Best Large School”.

This competition is now in its third year and is a thoroughly enjoyable occasion for all involved.  Over the course of the 48 various events many young athletes shone whether it was in sprinting, running middle distance, partaking in the long jump or ball-throw and the spread of medallists bore testimony to this.  The top three pupils in each event were presented with medals with all their class-mates providing vocal accompaingment as the results were announced.  Stars of the show, with triple wins, in the small schools category were Reah Sweeney, Templetuohy and Evelyn Delaney, Galmoy with Aaron Meakin and Mary Cussen both representing Urlingford double winners in their section.   The small schools category saw just a point separating Rahealty and Templetuohy but it was the dominance of Galmoy, especially in the fifth and sixth competitions, which bore fruit as they were crowned “Best Small” School for the third year in a row.  Well done to Galmoy on this great achievement.  Urlingford and Moyne went tit-for-tat in the large schools event with first one then the other leading the competition for “Best Large” Schools.  The margin was so fine in the end with just two points separating the two schools and it was Moyne who came out on top this year much to the delight of all the pupils and teachers involved.  This title has been swapped around over the past three years and no doubt Urlingford will be bidding for the title again next year.

Time plays a crucial role in the running of any schools competition and to this end our thanks to everyone for their co-operation throughout the day.  Many thanks also to all the officials and helpers who ran a very efficient event and contributed in no small way to the success of the competition.  Our thanks also to all those who provided refreshments which were so appreciated by everyone.
