U17-Seniors Kick off Galway Indoors in Style

Hot off the back of the fantastic Sports Capital Grant announcements for Craughwell, Athenry and Tuam there was a fantastic atmosphere in TUS (aka AIT) Indoor arena on Friday night, particularly among the officials, many of who’s clubs saw support for their development plans.

€120,000 Sports Capital Grant Announced!

Craughwell AC are over the moon with today’s announcement of a €120,000 Sports Capital Grant towards surfacing the club’s 400m track with an Olympic-standard tartan layer. With so many people working so hard within the club on coaching and committees and freely giving of their time to 100s of children and adults, it’s so encouraging to get such a huge injection of funding for our facilities. As everyone will already know, the drive for the 400m track was spearheaded by…

A big thank you to Andy Talbot and TJ Beatty and Jane-Ann Meehan for putting down the accurate markings on our 400m tarmacadem track today.

Brilliant Results in Baltic Connacht Schools XC

Brilliant Results in Baltic Connacht Schools XC

It was definitely a case of “four seasons in one day” as the cream of North and South Connacht distance running collided today in Bushfield for the magical goal of a top-15 qualification ticket to the All-Ireland in Belfast. After the heavy rain of the last few days, the course was coated with pretty deep mud for a lot of the loop, and the weather was intermittently cold and sunny and freezing and stormy. There were some outstanding runs from…

College Athletics has a fantastic buzz at the moment, and it’s great that we have so many excellent colleges with coaches delighted to collaborate with club coaches for the betterment of athletes.

Great fun in South Connacht Schools XC

Great fun in South Connacht Schools XC

A very short report in on a super two day’s Cross Country during the week. A change this year was to have the girls on Wed and the Boys on Thursday and I think it worked out quite well with timing, etc. My lunch break meant I missed the earlier races but there were some fantastic results from Craughwell AC athletes for their schools, including almost a clean sweep of victories in the lads races! (I haven’t had the chance…

Records Tumble in National League Rd.2

Records Tumble in National League Rd.2

It was great to be back inside a full and post-pandemic AIT as the National League Round 2 proceeded in full force.

Well done to all athletes, officials and coaches for making it possible. Special thanks to AAI’s…
