Community Games National Finals
Three club members took part in the Community Games National Finals in Carlow on Saturday and great credit to all three athletes as they performed brilliantly to bring home three pewter medals. Representing the parish of Moyne-Templetuohy were Maria Doyle (U/12 Ball throw) and Adam Phelan (U/14 Cycling on Grass) and representing the parish of Thurles was Sarah McGinley (U/14 Shot Putt) and all three athletes finished fourth in their respective events. Well done Maria, Adam, and Sarah. We are all proud of you.
County Even Age Juvenile & Novice Cross Country Championships
The first of this year’s County Cross Country Championships takes place in Newport on Sunday next with a start time of 11am. All athletes have an allocated time to be at the venue to collect their number and for warming up and we ask all parents and novice athletes to check out the Tipperary Athletics website where all information has been posted, i.e., timetable, course map, covid-19 guidelines, and covid-19 health screening questionnaire. We wish all our athletes the very best of luck.
A meeting of all officers and committee members will take place at the club facilities on Thursday night at 8pm. We hope to see everyone present.
The club are appealing for anyone with a Moyne AC singlet in their home to please return it to the club. With the imminent start of the cross-country season the club will need all singlets for our athletes. If you have competed with the club in the past and would like to contribute your singlet back to the club, we would be very appreciative. If any athlete is interested in buying their own singlet, they can be got on the club shop on the O’Neill’s website, and this is something the club would also recommend particularly considering the Covid-19 pandemic.
