Young athletes enjoy the fine weather and competition at Annual Sports Day

Comments Off on Young athletes enjoy the fine weather and competition at Annual Sports Day Uncategorized

We were delighted to welcome back the Annual Sports Day which was held last Sunday in Carsyfort Park. Joined by our close friends from Cabinteely AC, athletes from all age groups enjoyed the races, fun and festivities and once again the “weather gods” were good to us with almost near perfect conditions. The day itself always produces some exciting competition as we look to reward the overall participation of all the athletes. 

In particular the club would like to acknowledge the trojan work carried out by the volunteers in the lead up to last Sunday’s event and the many volunteers who got involved on the day itself.

Congratulations to Sarah Healy on her superb victory at the prestigious British Milers Club event in Sportscity, Manchester last weekend. Sarah was running in the 1500m A race and once again produced an outstanding display in a high class field. Her victory included lowering her PB to 4.15.53. Well done to Sarah on her performance/ PB which was just marginally outside the Irish Youths outdoor record.
