Curracloe 2019

It doesn’t feel like it was only last weekend but we had a great time on our annual trip to Curracloe. The weather gods were very kind to us and the beach certainly lived up to it’s reputation as one of the best in Ireland.

Huge thanks to Ann, Tina, Con, Hilary, Olwyn, Paul and Joe who gave up their free time to make the weekend possible.

Thanks to all our athletes who were no bother all weekend and hopefully you all enjoyed yourselves.

Huge thanks to members who volunteered to work at the Grant Thornton Corporate Challenge in docklands last evening. The race is a flagship fundraiser for AAI and due to severe restrictions around the course is extremely difficult to organize. Our members were brilliant and their efforts did not go unnoticed.

Again many thanks to: Niamh, Deirdre, Aoife, Sinead, Aislinn, Edel, Margaret, Emily, Pierre, Michael, Ian, Declan & Brian!
