Good luck to all our juvenile athletes in Connacht T&F

Good luck to all our juvenile athletes in Connacht T&F

The very best of luck to all our athletes in the forthcoming Connacht track and field championships which will be held in Sligo on 9th June (u9,10,11,12) and 16th June (u13,14,15,16,17,18,19).

We have a large number of athletes taking part, many with legitimate hopes of qualifying for the All-Irelands.  Based on their performances in the Galway Outdoor Track & Field Championships earlier in May, these hopes are well justified. The Galway championships provided rich pickings for Craughwell athletes – easily our best ever performance in both participation terms and podium positions. The performances across all age groups were superb and it would take too long to write a detailed dialogue of all of them.

One deserves particular mention – that of Aidan Conneely in the U12 boys sprint. Aidan’s birthday is towards the end of the year meaning he is almost a year younger than some of the competitors in his age group. However his age group is U11 so the new team competition this year means he has to run U12, so is almost 2 years younger than some of his competitors. But in the U12 Galway sprints, incredibly he was the fastest of all the competitors, including the silver medallist in the National Indoor U12 60m Simon Shaughnessy and the gold medallist in the National Indoor U12 600m Colm Hughes. A fantastic performance by Aidan and certainly a talent to watch for the future. Full details of the club’s medal winners and performances were as follows. When I get the details, I will post everyone’s performance to the Website, not just the medal winners.
