History of Irish Schools Athletics

3 May, 2015 - 18:01

An interesting history of the Irish Schools Athletics Championships has just been published by Athletics Ireland on their website. Some surprising statistics in it including the list of top 32 most successful schools in terms of gold medals won which features just 1 Connacht school – St Jarlath’s Tuam with 33 Irish titles – an athletics tradition that sadly appears to have died out in St Jarlath’s. Interesting also that one of the longest standing records is that of Galway Olympian Paul Donovan with 2 minutes flat in the Junior Boys 800m in 1978.

It includes a number of titles for athletes from our own club including Ann Loughnane (Race Walk 2002 and 2003), Cathriona Farrell (high jump 2005, 2008, 2009, long jump 2005 and 2006), Katie O’Donoghue (Pentathlon 2011 and 2012) and Linda Porter (1 mile, 2010).

Busy Day @ Sth Connacht Schools T&F

2 May, 2015 - 00:45

Top 4 in the Intermediate Girls Long Jump
Aisling Keady, Lorraine Delaney, Laura Cunningham, Caoilin Milton

With approximately 1500 entries for the South Connacht Schools Track & Field Championships, Dangan was thronged last Thursday on a busy busy day for athletics. With cold and wet conditions all week, amazingly the weather cleared up nicely for just Thursday and we managed to escape the rain for all bar a couple of minutes of the day. It was yet another brilliant day for many athletes from Craughwell AC with a decent representation from the club taking part for their schools and many qualifying for the Connacht finals which will be held in Athlone on Thursday 14th May.

Highlight of the day had to be Laura Cunningham's staggering 5.16m leap to win the Intermediate Girls Long Jump, her first time to break the magical 5 metre barrier. Laura's jump puts her in 5th place on the club's all-time outdoor list. Lorraine Delaney was in splendid jumping form also with a 4.96m effort on her first attempt that went very close to the 5m mark. Conditions were ideal for jumping with no wind, a fact which helped several others to improve their PBs significantly including Shauna Tobin and Caoilin Milton with 30cm and 20cm improvements. The top 12 best ever jumps by female athletes in the club is as follows:-

Amazing Results from U9-12s in Dangan!

28 April, 2015 - 11:41

Half (!) of Craughwell AC's U11 Girls Squad relaxing at the track

Results from Dangan on Saturday are out! And another incredible day for Craughwell AC with over 170 athletes in action across the 44 events in the U9 to 12s age groups and an incredible 69 podium finishes. It’s not just about podium finishes however – there were dozens of tremendous performances and personal bests from many athletes who competed to their best on the day and whose day on the podium will come in the future as they continue to train and improve. Highlight of the day was Lucas Keane breaking 3m for the first time in the U10 long jump with a leap of 3.01m and a loud yell to mark the occasion! A personal highlight for me was the unselfishness of 3 U10 athletes who stepped up onto U11 relay teams at short notice so that every one of the U11s were part of a full relay team.

Full details of the performances are in the attached pdf file at the bottom of this article. A big well done to South Galway AC who did all the admin work for the event including the results production. It takes a lot of hours on the PC to do all that and sometimes it goes unnoticed in our anxiety to receive the final results.

Sineád helps Ireland to qualifying time!

27 April, 2015 - 21:51

Sineád Treacy had another big weekend when running the 3rd leg of the 4x100m relay with the Irish Junior team at the Thomond Games in Limerick where the team secured the qualification time for the European Junior Championships. The Championships will be held in Sweden during the summer. With several athletes in contention for places on the team, the club's hopes are with Sineád to hold her place.

Shauna Medals in London!

27 April, 2015 - 21:43

Shauna Bocquet made her UK road race debut at the weekend in the prestigious London Marathon series of events where she competed in the WheelChair Mini-Marathon on the morning of the main marathon event.

Shauna raised to a fantastic time of 17:25 in the U14 girls grade, a massive achievement for the youngest athlete from the club to compete on the international stage.

Fantastic day in Dangan!

25 April, 2015 - 22:18

Well done everyone on a super day in Dangan at the U9-12 Galway Championships!

I will post results tomorrow as we are still in the process of getting info from our different age groups. But we had a super day and a massive amount of athletes from the club taking part ... over 180 from just our club. 

And well done to South Galway AC who did all the admin for the event - a really good job!! And a big thank you to all our parents who helped out in large numbers for most of the day - without you we wouldn't have the day.

And for all the early birds tomorrow morning, check out the London Marathon coverage on BBC2 where our very own Shauna Bocquet is competing in the Wheelchair Mini-marathon at 8.40am. Best of luck Shauna!

The timetable for this Saturday is now available and can be downloaded from the link below. Please note that the times are provisional and things may move faster or slower than listed. But it will give a reasonable idea of how long the events will take.

Galway U9-12 Track & Field, Sat 25 April 2015

The officials list for the day is at:-

Dangan 2015 Officials List

Best of luck to all of our athletes who are taking part - we have a huge contingent going in and hopefully everyone enjoys the experience and comes away happy with their performances. Arrive in plenty of time for your events ,,, 9.15am at the latest for anyone in action at 10am.

All of our young athletes should remember that if they run faster, jump further or throw further than they have ever done before, thats a brilliant success and winning a medal is just a nice bonus. Only a few athletes in each event will win medals but lots of athletes can get new personal bests or come close to it and have great fun when doing so.

So best of luck everyone and hopefully the weather will be nice to us!

For the uninitiated :-), Dangan track is just after the Westwood Hotel on the Moycullen road out of Galway city, next to the business park. Check it out on googlemaps.

Biggest Club in Ireland make World Record Challenge!

2 April, 2015 - 00:37

Craughwell AC has retained its place as the largest juvenile club in Ireland with the figures announced yesterday by Athletics Ireland. Having spent a number of years in the top 3, Craughwell edged into 2nd place and then 1st in Autumn last year. We appear to be growing more rapidly than any other club and are now 55 members bigger than the next biggest Dundrum South Dublin and more than twice as big as all other Connacht clubs other than Sligo AC. The club is extremely proud of this statistic as we place a big emphasis on participation as well as developing our members to their potential be it part of a healthy lifestyle or elite national and international standards.


And we’re not neglecting competitiveness either. After the recent Irish Indoor Championships, the club are ranked 6th in the country based on our indoor performances – with 9 medals and many top 8 finishes. The club’s performances in terms of both participation and competitiveness are all the more impressive given that our members come from a relatively small area of rural County Galway compared to many big city and town clubs.

All the more reason why the club needs to move forward quickly on developing our new facility as we badly need the space and better facilities for our rapidly growing membership. To this end, the club are launching is major fund-raiser for this year – an attempt at setting a Guinness World Record.

We really need the full support of club members on this as we are putting a lot of effort into developing advanced facilities quickly with the aid of loans and grants so that the current membership benefit.

Please read on for details of the facility plans and fundraiser- don't leave it to others as we need everyone on board!! Thank you!!

Outstanding Performances at Day 3 of Indoors

1 April, 2015 - 23:56

Matthew McKernan in action in the U18 Triple Jump National finals in Athlone

The club’s leading juveniles had another wonderful day of action on the final day of the National Indoor Track & Field championships in Athlone last weekend, with some fantastic performances which yielded 1 gold, 2 silver, 2 bronze and several top eight finishes. Foremost amongst them was Sineád Treacy’s massive leap of 5.45m to take the gold medal in the U19 long jump along with a season’s best of 25.04 to take the silver medal in a close battle to the line in the 200m. This brings Sineád’s tally for the National indoor season to 2 individual gold and 1 silver in the U19 championships, silver in the U20 200m and team silver in the National Indoor League – incredible performances.

Also in fine form, Matthew McKernan leaped an impressive 12.17m to take the silver medal in the U18 triple jump. Daniel Callanan-Forde claimed his first indoor National medal and first long jump National medal with a fine jump of 5.70m. Daniel was holding 2nd place until the very last round of jumps with a best of 5.68m when the jumper prior to him leapt 5.77m. On his final jump, Daniel put everything into it to leap 5.70m and had to settle for bronze by the tiny margin of 7cm.

In the U19 800m, Damien O’Boyle qualified comfortably in the heats in a time of 2.01.00 and went on to produce his 2nd fastest time ever to place 3rd in the final in a time of 1.58.93. 

Craughwell 10 2015 Race Report by Tom Prendergast

26 March, 2015 - 19:50

So, here I was at the start line of my first Craughwell 10 wearing a Craughwell AC singlet, but a complete stranger-almost. Having only joined the club 3 weeks ago I hoped this would be a successful homecoming. I hoped the Garmin would locate a satellite before the gun in 2 minutes!
Lots of guns here today, Raheny, Tullamore, Limerick, Mullingar, Roscommon, Templemore more Raheny... but this is my backyard. Galway's' finest are on show today. From Athenry-Rohan, Meehan, Healy, Somers, Deakin, from Maree, Mc Donagh, Kerrin from G.C.H. Bidwell, Brody, Carty, Phelan and some heavy local artillery in the form of Larkin and Mullins. 

Two hours earlier at number collection I didn't have to introduce myself as the lady issuing the numbers recognised me. It turns out Mairead Lane and I shared the same school bus when I did the leaving cert in '87. Mairead must have been in 1st year! So at least one person in a Craughwell singlet knows who I am! Having worked all morning in administration Mairead went on to post a superb 1hr 29mins.

BANG! We're off. I have a plan... run with my head and ignore the Garmin for the most part. Nobody is overtaking me in the first 500yards, that's because I'm moving too quickly and need to slow it up. Where's the plan now? I have overtaken quite a few and decide to sit it in, albeit 20yds behind my friend Brendan Mc Donnell. Brendan finished the Kinvara half two minutes ahead of me a fortnight ago, I won't see him for long. A young lad shoots past, down the centre of the road and continues at an electric pace. It was Oliver Mullins- he quickly fades in the distance.

Mile 1 complete 5'52"- not good, what am I doing? I'm 46 and with only two years running under my belt even I realise that this is far from intelligent running. So I pull in the horns. Mile two is flat and I decide to ignore the Garmin, reduce the effort and the pace, no overtakes 6'15". Two down and I can look forward to a drink soon.

The headwind is cooling though, just need to rinse the mouth. The runner behind me is starting to pound the tarmac, I can't live with this, two choices, no – one, he's not getting past...I squeeze the throttle. His noisy footfall fades. The three mile marker 6'04". Ah, the water station, all is good again, or is it? I try to take a drink but nearly choke. I'm moving too fast again and my mouth is for breathing, not drinking this time. We turn right for Roveagh and the breeze is no longer in our faces, found a comfortable pace now. Brendan is not really increasing the distance between us. I admire the scenery-almost 30 years since I travelled these roads. I'm moving well.6'13" for mile four.

The fine day means there are people at almost every gateway encouraging all the runners. They were there for the first four miles too but didn't get the appreciation they deserved as I was trying to referee a conflict between my head and my heart. Mile five has a gentle incline and I pass a runner whose game is clearly up! He wishes me well as I pass, he'll be back. I'm now starting to appreciate the advantages of being a club member running on home ground as cheers of "C'mon Craughwell", "Good man yourself" and "Fair play to ya" ring in my ears at every gateway. 6'14" for mile five and so far so good. We soon take another right turn and the initial breeze in our faces is now on our backs. Brendan is not stretching his lead over me but is actually within touching distance. He looks over his shoulder for the first time. He sensed it was me gaining on him, "I'm cattle trucked Tom" or similar sounding words came from his mouth. I pass my friend, tell him to tuck in and I'll take him to the finish. I'm 5'8" -he's 6'4"! He ordered me to "GO"- I did- mile six - 6'03"

I was moving well, legs were strong my breathing controlled. Mile seven has a hill, I like hills, and a water station. Brendan recedes behind me as I recognise the runner 200yds ahead-Jane Ann Healy. My only other race over the distance was the Galway Simon 10 last summer -I finished in 1:06:20 with Jane Ann 40 seconds ahead in 3rd place overall. I'd settle for that today but had a goal time of 1:05 for Craughwell. I wouldn't be checking my overall progress till race end. Mile seven 6 minutes flat.

Three miles from home and I was enjoying this. I managed to take on water during mile 7 and keep the pace. I managed a wave or two and a few "Thank you's" to the many encouraging well-wishers along these last few miles. This Craughwell singlet is making me run faster and stronger-I'm flying now. As I near the right hander just before the eight mile mark there's a shout "C'mon Tom, you're flying". It was the endorsement I needed, it was my old school class mate and Craughwell A.C. stalwart John Fitzpatrick.

I put mile eight aside in 5'54". Keep it cool now, don't blow up 2 from home. Jane Ann wasn't getting any closer... she was gliding along gracefully. All quiet in the rear-view mirror! There's a downhill section in mile nine and halfway down we take the only left hand turn onto the long home straight. There are lots of cheering onlookers now and I'm feeding off them 6'02" for mile nine.

And now one last effort, stay focused and finish strong but carry on enjoying the moment. I don't think the next runner is close enough to challenge my position in the field and I know I have got the fuel reserves spot on. I'll empty the tank now and float over the line. 200 yards to go and I disengage cruise control and fully open the throttle.

A marshal shouts my bib number ahead and the P.A. announcer is on the wrong page ...declaring "Next home is... (ladies name) from Ballyhaunis meet and train". The large crowd near the finish had such a laugh at the ugliest woman they ever saw running! I managed a smile and lifted my vest to expose a hairy belly for them, proof enough that she had made a wrong call. There quickly followed a correction and an apology over the P.A. system with the announcer rectifying her mistake declaring aloud that number 478 was in fact a MAN, me, TOM PRENDERGAST OF CRAUGHWELL A.C.

As I completed mile 10 in 5'57", I glanced contentedly at the clock overhead 1 hr 0mins 55 seconds. A 5 minute PB. I had absolutely no idea that I had such a time in me, but have since realised that the time was always there. It just took every man, woman and child along the route to draw it out of my willing legs and lungs, for that I shall be eternally grateful to everybody who made it for me, the race of a lifetime and for instilling so much pride in me through the club colours!

What a day! What a club! What a brilliant organisation. To the volunteers who probably outnumbered the runners "take a bow "and thank you,


Sinead Treacy National U19 60m Champion!

22 March, 2015 - 23:33

Sinead Treacy, National U19 Indoor 60m Champion 2015

Sinead Treacy was the star of the show on day 2 of the National Juvenile Indoor Track & Field Championships in AIT today when taking the U19 60m title in a blistering 7.84s – one of Sineád’s finest indoor performances in her final year as a juvenile athlete. Sineád’s progress over the years is an inspirational example to all of our younger athletes. If we rewind the clock to when our current U12s were U5s and in junior infants or thinking about the big step up into junior infants, Sineád was an U12 competing in the Galway Indoors in Nenagh where she placed 3rd, a feat she repeated in the Connacht’s in a time of 9.46 before going on to place 13th in the National finals. Her hard work and dedication in the intervening 7 years has paid rich dividends for Sineád and long may it continue for her after she leaves the juvenile ranks.

Jerry Leaps to National Silver!

21 March, 2015 - 18:14

Jerry Keary was the pride of the club on Saturday when he jumped a brilliant 1.70m to take the silver medal in the U16 boys high jump, in the process eclipsing the previous club best in this age group by 10cm. Jerry got off to a wobbly start knocking 1.55m on his first attempt and then proceeding to clear 1.60 and 1.65 on his first attempt.

With 5 jumpers still in it at 1.70m, it was a top quality competition. Only 1 cleared it on his first attempt, the eventual winner. Jerry got it on his 2nd attempt, the crucial jump as it turned out as it earned him the silver medal when the other 3 jumpers took another attempt to get it.

At 1.73m, Jerry made a few great attempts but it wasn’t to be on this occasion. But he was delighted with silver, a new PB and a club age group record and his first time on the podium since clearing 1.20m to take bronze as an U12 in 2011 having come close on many occasions in the intervening four years.

The relays threw up their usual share of exhilarating excitement with 2 fourth places finishes from the boys U15 and boys U12 teams in their finals.

The U15s ran a time of 1.50.29 to win their heat and followed it up with an exceptional performance in the final to place 4th with a time of 1.49.04 with the team of Alex Evans, Sean Connaughton, Ultan Sheerin and Oisin Shannon.


The U12s ran a superb heat in a time of 57.13 and followed it up with an exceptional 56.47 to take 4th place in a tight finish in the final – both times being club age group records. The team were Robert Urquhart, Conor Hoade, Lukas Schukat, Sean Fox and sub Liam McDonagh.

Earlier in the day the U15 girls recorded a good time in their 4x200m heat of 1.57.03 (Rachael Hughes, Mia Waters, Anna Farrelly, Siona Lawless) as did the U16 girls with a time of 1.56.22 (Siona Lawless, Lorraine Delaney, Anna Farrelly, Laura Cunningham) and the U14 boys who were unlucky to drop the baton in their race when recording a time of 1.59.84 (Alex Evans, Sean Connaughton, Kyle Moorhead, Finbar McFadden, sub Ciaran Connaughton). The U13 boys had a strong performance in their heats to qualify for the final when winning their heat in a time of 56.79 and went on to place 5th in the final in a time of 57.01 with their team of Lewis Ryan, Jack Fitzgerald, Padraig Martyn and Shaun Gilligan.

Meanwhile Oisin Lyons had a massive performance on his international debut when he placed 12th in the Schools International Cross Country which was held in Santry. While it has not been confirmed yet, its thought the Irish team took the silver medals. Also in flying form, Neil Greaney had a fine run to take the victory in the PREDA 5k Run for Freedom at Ballybrit where he held on for the victory in an excellent time of 16.25, battling to the line with clubmate Jason Broderick.

Finally welcome to Craughwell tomorrow to all the Craughwell 10 participants! Best of luck to all! And best of luck also to all our juveniles in action at day 2 of the National Indoors tomorrow!
