Screen Shot 2019-01-20 at 21.52.47.png

Our women’s indoor track and field team will travel to Athlone on Saturday in search of retaining the title won a year ago. In fact, we are seeking to win three in a row which no other club has achieved to date. Despite the fact that we are leading from day one,  we need to be at full strength due to the new format of the league and the following team has been selected to represent our club;

200M                     CATHERINE

400M                     CATHERINE

1500M                  JODIE




Supporters are most welcome! 🎉 Please notify your coach if you intend to travel and cars can be shared where possible.

Please also notify your coach asap if you would like to compete in one of the guest (individual/no points are gained etc) races on the day.

Best of luck to the team!

Indoor league round 1

The 2019 indoor season got under way today in NIA with the first of two rounds of the inter club National indoor league. 10 clubs have entered this year so a good score was vital on day one. Alison got us off to a good start finishing 2nd in the hurdles, Muireann came 3rd in the pole vault, Catherine notched up valuable points with 3rd in the long jump and 3rd in the 60m, Cliona came 3rd in a competitive 800m and to finish off our day Brigid came 2nd in the shot. Solid scoring throughout the day saw us lead by 7 points going into day two in 2 weeks time.
Guest races were held throughout the day and we had some very good results particularly from Susie Mc Manus who came 2nd in both the 800 and 1500 running a personal best in the 800. Clare Brennan had her first outing in a long time in the 800 and Cliona came 4th in the guest 1500.
Catherine won her 400 and Caoimhe came 3rd in her 400m race. Ian Lawler had a good run in his 400. Good to see Evan back racing over 800m.
Overall a good day out for the club, cobwebs dusted off and lots more to look forward to over the next few weeks.
