Christmas Morning Mile

Moyne AC will once again organise the Christmas morning mile on Tuesday 25th December from 10.30am to 12 noon.  Everyone is welcome to walk, jog or run the mile – just four rounds of the track. 

Over the years many charities have benefitted from this event and this year it is the turn of HEART TO HAND.  Two local men, Billy Dunne and Eamonn Cornally, have travelled to Albania with other volunteers to organise the building and rebuilding of homes for the poor.  They have put new roofs on homes, installed windows and doors and other necessary repairs.  They worked long hours to complete the tasks on hand and all travelled at their own expense and raised money for the building materials.  In 2019 the group will again travel out to Albania to carry out more housing projects which will include converting a very large basement into a major homeless centre for individuals and families.  The centre will include temporary accommodation, toilets, showers, large industrial kitchen, electrics, drainage, classrooms, training rooms and much more.  Their work is so important to the poor of that country so any donation on the day or in the days leading up to or after the 25th would be appreciated.  We hope that all our athletes and supporters can make it on the day.

All-Ireland Uneven age and Novice Cross Country Championships, Navan
The All-Ireland Uneven age and Novice Cross Country Championships took place on Saturday. Storm Deirdre did not deter our athletes who braved the elements to race against the best in Ireland. Four athletes travelled to Navan racecourse where the conditions were wet and windy. The underfoot conditions were heavy and wet however the course provided some exhilarating performances. Our first athlete on the course was Tomas Cussen. Tomas ran very well in the Boys U15 event to finish 137th. Following this performance we had three of our Senior athletes run in the Novice Ladies event. Angela Fogarty, Lorraine Healy and Louise Fogarty completed two 2k laps along with four other Tipperary Ladies. Angela was our first athlete to finish in an excellent 50th position. Lorraine followed Angela in 86th position and Louise finished in 105th position. Well done on the excellent achievement and for representing the club on such a high level.
