Dublin City Marathon

Congratulations and well done to Brian Carroll (3.29), Deirdre Royce (4.00) and Frances Long (4.18) on competing the Dublin City Marathon on Sunday.  Their hours of dedication to training paid off and a deserved break is now on the cards. 

County Juvenile Relays, Masters & U/23 Cross Country Championships

Thurles is the venue on Sunday next for these championships which are commencing at the earlier time of 11am sharp.  We ask parents to please inform club coaches if your child/children are unable to make it on Sunday as without one member the team will be unable to compete.  Final trials are being held this week and teams will be announced at training.  All competing should be in the grounds of Thurles Crokes AC by 10.15am at the latest.  The Masters & U/23 championships follow on directly and we wish all athletes taking part the very best of luck. 

Munster Athletics Academy

ix of our junior athletes travelled to the Nenagh Indoor Complex to take part in the Munster Athletics Academy.  Katie Bergin, Aisling Dwyer, Rachel Butler, Leona Maher, Emma Gleeson and Aoife Dwyer were put through their paces by some of our top athletic coaches.  They will certainly benefit in a huge way from being part of this set up.
