Comments Off on Huge turn out at the Juvenile Training Days @ NIA Uncategorized

A big thank you to the Athletes & Coaches from the 2004-2008 age groups who took the opportunity on Saturday to get re-accustomed to the great facilities @ NIA in advance of the forthcoming Dublin Indoor Championships.

In total we had 78 athletes participating over the first two hours in the following workshops: Sprints, Hurdles, Middle Distance, Long Jump, High Jump and Shot.

The groups then turned their attention to the 4 x 200m relay practice session which brought the usual buzz and excitement for all involved.

Next up are the athletes in the age groups 2009-2011 who will be training at the arena from 11 am to 1 pm on Sunday next 26th January.

Holly takes top 10 finish at All Irl XC in Dunboyne

Comments Off on Holly takes top 10 finish at All Irl XC in Dunboyne Uncategorized

Congrats to club athlete Holly O’Brien who was in outstanding form over the weekend in the All Irl U13 2500m at Dunboyne, Co Meath. Having only finished in 8th place in the Dublin County Final back in October, Holly’s hard work over the last few weeks paid rich dividends with a 10th place finish in the race and third Dublin athlete home. 

In what were typical XC underfoot conditions, Holly was in the lead group from the start and stayed in touch throughout with a great performance. She was also part of the Dublin team that won County Team Gold and Province Team bronze..

This caps off another fine year for Holly, having represented the club in three National Competitions, and keeping a great club tradition of underage middle distance top 10’s on the National stage. 

She also had the added bonus of been recognised as the Club’s Juvenile athlete of the year for 2019. 

A great way to round off 2019. Well done Holly.
