2015_Official Opening Programme

This Saturday is a landmark day for the club with the official opening of our re-developed track.  The club now has a four lane 400mts IAAF standard tartan track along with a two lane walking track and our thanks to everyone involved in bringing this major project to fruition.  A lot of hard work has gone in to make this happen and Saturday is the culmination of all this effort.  Events will get underway at 1pm with the programme of events above.  Races for juvenile members and senior athletes so we hope to see a big turnout of athletes and their families on the day.  Also on the programme are three invitational races – 110mts hurdles for men, Ladies 800mts and Men’s Mile where Daniel Ryan, Ciara Everard and Eoin Everard who have all represented Ireland in international competitions will participate.  It is great to have such high class performers in action on home ground.  These three races have also been sponsored by local businesses – Maher Quarries, Cooleeney Cheese and Centenary/Thurles Co. Op and many thanks to them for their generousity.  All events on the day will be recorded by Irish TV for showing at a later date on television.  As we are expecting a big crowd on the day any donations of sandwiches or confectionary would be very much appreciated.
