Incredible performances from Sorcha and Poppi yesterday at the Munster Indoors. They secured silver and bronze medals respectively. Well done girls!!!
Weekend Update 14/15th January 2022
Poppi Devereux and Sorcha Kilgannon were our sole participants at the All Ireland Junior and Under 23 Indoor Championships on Saturday January 14th taking place in The National Indoor arena Abbotstown.
Round 5 of Winter league took place this morning January 15th with 13 competitors braving the bighting wind. Starting at Claycastle runners were lucky enough to have the wind behind them enroute to Green Park but returning was a different story. Straight into the wind biting at their faces, many finished with the appearance of being too long in the sun rather than a run out.

The Weekend of January 21st saw the Inaugural Winter League coming to a close with two 7k events taking place.
