Tipperary Athletics Academy.
On Saturday a number of our athletes took part in the first day of the Tipperary Athletics Academy, in Templemore, which was organised by Amanda O’Farrell. It was an informative session and it was a great opportunity for some of our middle distance athletes to train with other athletes from around the county.

We would like to thank Amanda O Farrell who came to the track on Saturday afternoon to run a javelin and turbo javelin workshop for our juvenile athletes. We had a great number of athletes taking part. Well done to all that took part. This experience will definitely stand to the athletes as they focus on their track and field seasons that are shortly on the way. Thanks to Triona Murphy for organising this session for our juvenile athletes.
