Well done to all who competed in the recent County XC Championships in Roundwood & Avondale. The Club appreciates your support and participation. We have found over the years that athletes who take part in competitions get so much more out of their participation and enjoy being part of their teams. These athletes acquire long term health and social benefits, and are less likely to drop their fitness as young adults. We were disappointed with the very poor attendance both days and failed to make up teams in many age groups, but we were impressed with the performances of those who did compete at these events.
RETURN TO TRAINING
We have now been back training for three weeks (two for the younger groups) and while attendance so far has been great by many with tremendous work being done, it has been poor in some groups, particularly Group 2. We look forward to a big improvement this coming week and remind everyone that we cannot hold places indefinitely for athletes who don’t attend regularly, as we still have a long waiting lists on most groups.
Well done to all who competed in the Leinster Championships recently and many congratulations to all who qualified for the upcoming Nationals. Lots of super performances in a variety of events and a great selection of medals & qualifiers to the All Ireland’s as a result!
Well done to all our club athletes who competed at the recent County Championships and a huge ‘Thank You’ to all the coaches & officials who made it all possible. Considering the large number of athletes in the club, athlete attendance numbers were disappointing, but what we lacked in numbers was more than made up for by the enthusiasm and effort put in by all those who did attend.
