Well done to Wicklow's Stephanie Reilly (Sli Cualann AC) who achieved the qualification standard in the 3000m steeplechase for this year's World Championships and next years Olympics at the weekend in a time of 9:42.91.

And why is this relevant to Craughwell AC? Well Stephanie is married to Paul Reilly who is the nephew of Craughwell NS's school secretary Brenda. Brenda hails from the legendary Reilly clan from Loughrea AC.

Of course, Craughwell AC are taking full credit for the performance as undoubtedly its the club's influence on Brenda and hence on Stephanie that resulted in this remarkable achievement :-).
