Coaches “up and running” in Irishtown

Comments Off on Coaches “up and running” in Irishtown Uncategorized

We were delighted to welcome Steven Macklin to Irishtown on Sunday morning where he put together a comprehensive presentation for the Coaching team as we start preparations for the 2015 Cross Country season.

Steven (who is the National Junior Endurance Coach) brought the group through the various facets of Middle Distance training including updates on Dynamic Warm ups and Mobility drills along with advice on current training programmes with the coaching team.

Steven also gave us a great insight into his work with the High Performance squads at Junior and U23 level.

The club would like to thank him for his excellent contribution as we get “up and running” for the new campaign.

AmyRose takes Silver at Celtic International Games

Comments Off on AmyRose takes Silver at Celtic International Games Uncategorized

AmyRose Farrell took a fine silver medal over the weekend at the Celtic International Competition in Falkirk. She was representing Ireland in the U16 Category and in a very unique event, athletes from both the the U16/ 18 category are included in the one race.

AmyRose (1500m) was one of four athletes setting a strong pace as they broke away from the main group mid way through the race eventually finishing in fourth place overall and the second athlete home in the U16 race behind her Scottish Counterpart. Her time of 4.38 was also a new PB and a great weekend for her and the Irish Team as they finished second overall in the Team competition.

Congratulations to AmyRose on another fine performance in her second International outing this year.
