Big Performances in Connacht Indoors!

Big Performances in Connacht Indoors!


A large contingent of athletes from the club descended on the international arena in Athlone IT at the weekend for the Connacht Indoor Track & Field Championships. With over 100 athletes in action, Craughwell AC had the largest representation at these championships which told in the podium finishes with 29 Connacht titles coming our way, 13 silver and 11 bronze podium finishes.

There were many highlights across the 2 days in particular an impressive 1.58.08 from Damien O’Boyle in the U19 800m, significantly helped by Peadar Harvey who paced the first 400m of the race. It was a generous act from Peadar who holds the club record of 1.57.xx and unselfishly paced Damien to an attempt to break that. As it was Damien came very close to that record and even closer to Paul Joyce’s junior club record of 1.58.05. Cathriona Farrell gave an exhibition of jumping in the senior high jump, attempting 1.80m and soaring 10cm above it but clipping it with her heels. Sinead Treacy came home with triple gold I the 60m, 200m and long jump – another fantastic performance from a great athlete. In the U16s, despite a bad enough injury picked up on Thursday night when practicing for hurdles, Lorraine Delaney had an impressive series of jumps to nail a new high jump PB of 1.50m having improved from 1.40m to 1.45m only a few weeks earlier at the Scottish Championships. Laura Cunningham had to settle for 2nd place but more than made up for this with her first Connacht long jump title in a few years.

The U16 boys dominated their proceedings picking up the relay title, 800m title (Oisin Lyons), high jump title (Jerry Keary), long jump title (Daniel Callanan-Forde), shot putt title (Cian Waters) as well as several other medals. In the U15 grade, Siona Lawless and Ultan Sheerin excelled when taking the long jump title as did Oisin Shannon when taking the sprint title.

In the U14s, a massive performance from Kyle Moorhead in the 800m saw him take 2nd place ahead of some elite opposition. Also in the U14s, Sean Connaughton was in super form when taking 3 silvers as was Leanagh Gilligan with high jump gold and long jump silver and Eva Kelly with shot putt and high jump bronze.

The stars of the show in the U13s were Ava Finn with a big PB to take the high jump title and Jack Farrell when winning the hurdles title while in the U12 grade, there were huge jumps from Sean Fox to win the long jump and from Lukas Schukat in the high jump, both threatening the club records in this age group, as well as a fantastic 58.10 time from the U12 boys relay when placing second behind National champions Ballinasloe with a time that is possibly a club record for this age group.
