County Road Relays

The start of the road season gets underway on Sunday next 4th February with the staging of the County Road Relays in Clonoulty commencing at 12 noon.  Last year the club managed to have 4 mens and 4 ladies teams in action and hopefully we can repeat that number again this year. This is the one road competition where our junior and senior athletes can compete together and it forms a great bond between them.  The format of the relay is 800 x 1,500 x 800 x 3,000 with the junior athletes confined to the 800mts and 1,500mts legs.  The best of luck to all competing and if the athletes could give their names to John Flynn as soon as possible it would help in making up the various teams.  Athletes are also reminded that they must be registered for 2018 to compete.

Special Olympics Ireland Games 2018

Munster Club Indoor Relay Championships

Munster U/18 Bronze Medallists

Just one team from the club took part in this very prestigious championship but what debut this quartet produced with a bronze medal winning performance in the Boys U/18 4 x 200mts event.  Jack Hickey, Sean Burke, Brian O’Callaghan and Dylan McLoughlin ran a lifetime best of 1.42.42 to finish third behind track specialists Leevale and Dooneen. This quartet, along with Michael O’Mahoney who was nursing a groin injury and was unable to compete, have just come together as a group but have now shown the potential that is there. With further track relays down the line who knows what they can achieve.

Club Annual General Meeting

The club AGM took place on Friday night with a great attendance of officers, committee, athletes and parents.  The many reports on the night highlighted the successful year 2017 was for the club with numerous medals and awards coming the way of the club, the continued rise in membership between juveniles and seniors, the lowering of the debt to just below €100,000 and the vital support of the parents throughout the competition year.  With some of our officers stepping down it was also heartening to see parents and athletes coming forward to fill these positions which bodes well for the club going forward into 2018 which is the 70th anniversary of the founding of the club.

Those tasked with running the club are:  Hon. President: John Flynn, Vice-Presidents: Fr. Pat Murphy, Jimmy O’Meara, Thomas Flynn, Sean Hayden, Fr. Jimmy Kennedy, Chairperson: Paddy Doyle, Vice-Chairperson: Richard Daly, Secretary: Kate Harrison, Treasurer: Elaine Flynn, PRO Senior: Lorraine Healy, PRO Juvenile Cross Country: Joanne Phelan & Ber Spillane, PRO Juvenile Track & Field: No appointment, Competition Secretary: Geraldine Hickey, Registrar: Sharon Cantwell, Child Protection Officers: Sinead Tynan, Liz Power, Designated Liaison Officer: Sinead Tynan, Recorder: Eileen Ryan, Complaints Committee: Imelda Flynn, Paddy Doyle, Martin Flynn, Appeals Committee: Sinead Tynan, Kathleen Maher, Rosemary Cleere, Committee Members: Naomi Morrissey, Aisling Maher, Sinead McLoughlin, Eibhlis Purcell.

Special Olympics Ireland Games 2018
