Clarinbridge NS win Christy Kennedy Sports 2024

The annual Christy Kennedy Sports Day took place at Craughwell AC’s track earlier this month with local schools Craughwell NS, Ballymana NS, Coldwood NS, Killeeneen NS, Carrabane NS, Clarinbridge NS and Kilchreest NS taking part. It was Kilchreest’s first time taking part, great to have another school joining the action! For those interested in the history of the event, Christy Kennedy was one of the founders of Craughwell AC over 50 years ago and tirelessly promoted the sport in the area for many decades.

Clarinbridge NS won the Christy Kennedy Shield on this occasion, finishing narrowly ahead of Killeeneen NS and wrestling the title from Craughwell NS who had won it for the last number of years. Craughwell NS’s B team won the Division B competition. The club wishes to thank all of the local schools for taking part and all of the volunteers who helped to run the event, in particular local photographer John O’Connor who captured many great photos of the event which are freely available on his edenhill flickr account.

Some of these are included below but check out John’s flickr site at https://www.flickr.com/photos/edenhill77/albums/ for 4 full albums of the day, a priceless record of the event.
