It’s always one of the highlights of our calendar year, “The Turkey Trot”…… a great occasion with parents, athletes and club members getting together to enjoy the festivities and take a well deserved break after another long, enjoyable and successful twelve months. And this year we were honoured to be joined by Sonia O’Sullivan and her daughter Sophie. Needless to say there was great excitement and both Sonia and Sophie were quickly into the festive spirit and took some time out to pose for photos with young and old. She was also very happy to present the seven main awards (see details below) and we would like to thank Patrick Bolger for organising this visit. The club is greatly appreciative of their support and congratulations from us all on Sonia’s Outstanding Achievement Award at the Irish Times/ Sports Ireland Sportswoman of the Year awards over the weekend.

Amy Rose Farrell was in action yesterday at the European XC championships in Chia, Italy. The flat terrain made for some very fast races and the Junior women’s race had a pretty lively pace from the start. Amy Rose was in super form as she went with the lead group and was with them up until the last loop when the classy German athlete, Konstanze Klosterhalfen, took control of proceedings, eventually winning out comfortably. Amy Rose finished in an excellent 22nd place (first Irish Athlete home) in a very strong time over the 4150m course. The Irish team came in 10th place.
Congrats from us all on what was a fantastic overall experience. She was the third youngest athlete in the field and has another three years at this level!
