Congratulations to our 5 individual plus U13 Girls Relay Team that are all Connacht medallists in the U9-13 age group and will go forward to upcoming All-Ireland competitions. Gold- Funmi Talabi U13 sprint, Silver- Ryan Keogh U12 turbo javelin, Silver – Matthew McCormack U12 sprint and Silver- U11 sprint pair Laura McCormack and Aoife Farrell, Gold- U13 Girls Relay Team: Funmi Talabi, Laura Farrell, Siog Reilly & Rachel Mulligan.
Longford AC had 49 children competing on Day 1, many for the very first time. On this occasion we did not excel in the medals count but every child went home with a new pb- “personal best”. This means that they all have a time/distance that represents their own achievement in the competition. Thanks to all parents that helped out with our large group (collecting entry fees, preparing relay teams, selling singlets, keeping track of the timetable, ect… ), your assistance was much appreciated.
Our Club continues to grow, and with 250 juvenile members in Longford, Kenagh and Dromard we definitely need more coaches to come on board when we start back in September. Athletics Ireland provides coaching courses for Little Athletics, Assistant Coach and Level 1 plus workshops in many specialized events. Please contact any of the coaches or email into the Club account anytime to get more information and become involved.
