Juvenile & Little Athletics

The cold & icy conditions didn't dampen the spirits at our final Little Athletics & Juvenile training on Thursday night. Even with the astro pitches closed lots of festive fun dancing and treats were had. We even had a visit from Santa's much younger handsome nephew 'Sooty' who was on hand to give everyone a selection box. Huge thankyou to all the coaches. Training will resume in January. Keep an eye on WhatsApp for details.

League 3 - Cross Country Tymon Park

Very well-done Max, Maeve, Anna Mai, Saidhbhín and Mark who took on the wintry conditions in Tymon Park today.

Brave running by everyone -and an excellent 5th place finish for Mark Kelly in an intense boys U12 race adding 26 points to his total of 53 from Leagues 1 & 2.

Huge thanks to all the family members who supported our athletes, and thanks to Dara for co-ordinating the warmups and providing the very welcome hot chocolate at the end.

Special thanks to Donal Iremonger (Donore Harriers) for his mentoring support and guidance ….as always!
