Craughwell Community Games will take place this bank holiday Monday May 2nd from 3pm to 6pm as the astroturf and adjacent athletics field.
You don’t need to be a member of the athletic club to take part – the event is intended for all children in the parish and is a great opportunity to represent the parish in the Galway finals either as an individual or on a relay team.
It promises to be an entertaining event with the following events in each age group. Children can take part in as many events in their age group as they wish. Entry fee is €5 per family – mainly to cover costs of medals.
- Preschool: 25m
- U6s: 35m
- U8s: 60m & 80m
- U10s: 100m, 200m, hurdles
