Congratulations to all our Juvenile Athletes who competed in the County Track & Field Championships held over two days of last weekend in Castleisland. Weather conditions were ideal
and there was some very exciting races over all age categories. We will post full results next week. A special thanks to our juvenile coaches, Maria McCarthy (Track), Sean O'Shea (Throws) and Jerome Crowley (Jumps) for their support in preparing the children for competition over the last few months. It was evident that the hard work payed off with all our juveniles making the finals and many winning medals. Next up will be Munster Juvenile T&F commencing early June.
Well done to Darragh Casey who competed in the Killarney Half Marathon on Sat. 12th May. Darragh set himself a new personal best time of 1:23. and finishing in fifth place overall.
