A Sprints Workshop, organised by our Regional Development Officer, Steven Macklin, will take place this Wednesday night, 4th March, from7pm-9pm in our indoor facility. The workshop is open to all athletes and coaches aged 10+.The cost is €5 per person payable on the night.   Registration is from 6.40pm-6.55pm with a 7pm sharp start time. There is no need to book a place, just show up on the night.

This is an ideal opportunity for our athletes to receive coaching from one of Ireland’s top athletes on the discipline of sprinting and the associated drills, starts etc. He provided an excellent hurdles workshop a couple of weeks ago which was very well received by all who were there.

The workshop will be run by Paul Byrne who is an elite-level hurdler from Co. Laois, who specialises in the 400m hurdles. He represented Ireland at the 2011 European Under-23 Championships in Ostrava, reaching the semi-finals. He holds the Irish Best for the 300m hurdles with a clocking of 36.88. At the 2014 Irish National Championships, he claimed the silver medal in the 400m hurdles. His PB of 51.29 ranks him 8th on the Irish all-time list.
