The National League Final was held in Tullamore on Sunday August 20th. The Kerry Women's team did very well with a total of 89 points. This was enough to finish in third place overall earning a national bronze medal. They were just seven points from second place. With a number of very talented athletes unavailable on the day it shows that Kerry has a pool of young women athletes coming up the ranks. A credit to all county clubs and the Kerry development squad.
Competing from our club was Maria McCarthy in the 3000m where she finished in 2nd place.
Niamh De Hora in the 800m and Relay.
Elaina Norris Hurdles
Leanne Cronin Shot
Rossa Foley was part of the Men's An Riocht team Did not make it onto the podium.
A number of our juveniles were competing in the Aldi National Community Games Finals held in Dublin over the weekend. They all did very well with most making it through to the finals.
With the holiday season coming to an end soon, we will be starting up our juvenile and senior training in the next few weeks. Main focus will be on Cross Country competition and for others preparation for the Indoor season next January. We will post training times next weekend.
Thanks to Pauline Joseph's hard work in the background our club has been chosen by Tesco Deerpark Killarney as part of the Tesco Community Fund. For eight weeks if members, friends and family could support the club by dropping the blue token into the slot for our club it will help in getting much needed funds raised. Spread the word.
