Craughwell NS at the Galway City Sports 2019

Two days of primary school action last week saw the Cumann na mBunscol City and County Sports held on consequtive days in Dangan. I just have the results from Craughwell NS and Ballymana NS to hand so if parents have those for other schools, please email me and I will add them/photos thanks.

While obviously based in the county, Craughwell NS have always contested the city sports rather than the county sports because the latter did not exist when the school first started competing in athletics events. This year, the school enjoyed one of its best days ever with Ella Farrelly and Grace Lynch taking gold and silver in the U13 Girls 100m and the U13 Girls relay team also cruising to victory with the aforementioned ably assisted by Grace Keaveney, Rachel O’Callaghan, Isabel Schukat and Andrea Clancy.

Keelan Moorhead raced to bronze in the U11 400m and combined with Ben Moran, Oran Collins, Eanna Morrissey and Alex Ryan for bronze in the 4x100m relay. Alan Hallinan took the gold medal in the U9 400m by over 40m and led the U9 boys relay team to victory along with Calum McMahon, Cathal Desbonnet, Darragh O’Donnell, Sean Colleran and Stephen Coleman.

Katelyn Walsh was just outside the medals in 4th place in both the U11 Girls 400m and in the U11 Girls relay with Lauren Morgan, Chloe Keane, Ciara O’Connor, Mia Hollingsworth and Alana Clancy.

Ballymana NS shone at the Galway County Sports in Dangan with victory in the U13 Girls 100m for Aoibhe Donnellan and also in the U13 Girls 4x100m with Aoibhe joined by Isabella Boland, Abaigh Molloy and Gillian Crowe. Siblings Emma and Oisin O’Donovan raced to silver in the U11 Girls 400m and U9 Boys 400m.
