All Ireland Schools Cross Country Championships

Alana Spillane who represented Ursuline, Thurles in the All-Ireland Schools Cross Country Championships in Mallusk, Belfast on Saturday last. Alana finished 46th overall and was the leading athlete home for her school. Well done Alana on a great performance.

Irish Life Health National Juvenile Indoor Championships

Day’s 1 & 2 of these championships take place in Athlone this weekend and it is great to see that the club will have two representatives taking part. Qualification through the Munster equivalent is mandatory so to come through that shows the quality of both Leona Maher and Alana Spillane who will compete in the U/19 200mts and U/15 800mts respectively. Both competitions are on Sunday, and we wish both the very best of luck in the finals.

County Road Relay Championships

The club will host the County Road Relays on Sunday next commencing at 12 noon from the club headquarters. Both the men and ladies’ relays consist of legs of 800m x 1,500m x 800m x 3,000m and the club has devised a course around the track and on the road to facilitate these various legs of the relay. This is an event where junior and senior athletes can combine to make a team, albeit juniors can only run the 800 or 1,500 legs and must be 16 by the end of December this year.  The club will be organising teams during the week and being on home ground would love to have some success in what is essentially a championship event.
