Ronan Dempsey silver in the 400m, the 400m hurdles & the 200m (a very busy & successful weekend indeed), Aodhan Daly silver in the 100m & bronze in the Long Jump.

There were many more fine performances over the two days & several PB’s!

 

Congratulations & well done to everyone who took part & many thanks to our coaches & officials & all the mums & dads who travelled over the two days. Best of luck in the All Ireland’s!

 

 

The combined events took place this weekend and our only juvenile entry Daniel Quirk won the U14 boys event,130 points clear of the 2nd placed athlete. Well done Daniel!

 

 

There were great results from the All Ireland schools also with Jack McGlone taking Gold in the 800m Junior Boys and Bronze in the 4x100m relay. Daniel Quirk taking silver in the Long Jump and 4th place in the Minor Boys 75m hurdles after two off-putting false starts from other athletes. Joe Dowd had the race of his life in the Inter boys 1500m Steeplechase, finishing a very close 4th place. There were many other fine performances here also.

 

 

Ellen McNally & Emma Quirk were selected from their Leinster schools results to compete in the Tailteann Games this weekend. Ellen finished in 2nd place which means she has qualified to represent Ireland at the Schools International in Swansea and Emma finished in 5th with a new PB. Great jumping from the girls & huge congratulations to Ellen on her International selection.

 

 

We had two great evening’s of local competition at the Flash event & the Co. Team event. Great performances from our athletes and great fun had by all present. It was lovely to see the teams pull together so well and support one another throughout the event. Results will be posted on our website once available.

 


 

BRAY INVITATIONAL EVENT

 

The Annual Bray Invitational Event takes place this coming Tues. 25th June in Greystones. Entries are now closed and we look forward to a great evenings competition as always. Athletes need to arrive by 6pm, as the first events are at 6.30pm & they will need to get started on time.

 

There will be no training for the 6-7pm or 7-8.30pm groups this Tuesday due to this competition. Little Athletics 5-6pm will go ahead as normal.

 


 

SUMMER TRAINING

 

Training for our 5-6 pm group will finish up for the summer this Tues. 25th June and the 6-7pm groups will finish on Fri 28th. We will finish up with a fun competition on Tues for the 5-6 pm group & on Fri for the 6-7pm groups. Group 3 athletes have the option to come along to the 7-8.30pm sessions during July, as some will have the opportunity to move up to this group in Sept.

 

 

We hope everyone has a great summer & we look forward to seeing you all back in Sept. A huge ‘Thank You’ to our coaches and helpers and an appeal for more help in Sept. please, as some coaches will not be available to return, so we can’t continue without help. Please get in touch if you can help out with any of the groups from Sept. If we don’t get more help we will have to cancel some sessions from Sept. The 5pm & 6pm groups will return on Tues 10th Sept, allowing a week for the younger ones to settle back into school.

 

 

Training for the 7-8.30pm groups continues throughout July as many of our athletes will still be competing during this time. We will take a short break once competition finishes and return on Tues 3rd.Sept. with this group. We recommend a two week break and then you should start back gradually, running 15-20 mins (younger groups 10-15m) every second day and adding a couple of mins each week. This way you will return in Sept. 'Fit to Train' and not have to spend the first few weeks trying to get fit. Our first events will come up very quickly, when we return in Sept. so you need to be ready to train when we return.

 


 

Athletes from all groups, who have not attended for a number of weeks, need to contact us right away if they intend to return in Sept. Don’t leave it until late July or August as places will be given to those on our long waiting list and we will not be able to accommodate you in Sept. No exceptions to this rule!
