On Sunday the club attended the County Relay Championships in Thurles Crokes. The weather was kind again and ground conditions were excellent We had 11 teams on the day and we were rewarded with good success, more importantly though, a lot of fun was had by the athletes. Each athlete had one circuit to complete and there were plenty of pace on! Our U10 girls were once again up there leading the way and won convincingly. We also had success with our Senior team with a huge anchor leg form Dylan McLaughlin who closed down the Crokes man to take the W in the closing stages.
