As 2021 draws to a close we wish all our members and families a very happy New Year for 2022!
It’s been a historic year for the club, with four Jnr athletes Fionn Harrington, Lauren McCourt, Nicola Tuthill and Diarmuid O’connor competing at the European Jnr Championships in July. Two of whom have accepted university places in the US. Phil Healy became the first Irish Athele to compete in 3 events at an OLYMPICS, one event of which, Phil was part of the Mixed 4×4 relay which made the Final.
Closer to home, we broke ground on our new site in December and are looking forward to following that progress in the new year.
At the recent AGM outgoing Chairman Patrick McSweeney acknowledged the incredible success during the year and the hard work which is ongoing behind the scenes on the track development. He thanked everyone for the support he has received over the years. Outgoing vice Chairman Adrian O’Flynn was nominated by Patrick McSweeney for the position of Chairman and Adrian was elected unopposed.
We cannot forgot the loss the club felt during the year with the passing of Billy Good. Billy had a big part to play in the purchase of the Track site. We also would like to remember Catherine Duggan who also played a massive role in the Club. Catherine had a long term dream for the club to have our own home to call ours.
Here’s to hoping 2022 will bring lots of happiness and plenty more success for the Club!!
