Congratulations Sineád!

Congratulations to Sineád Treacy who had been selected to represent Ireland in the 200m and the 4x300m relay in the Schools International Track & Field which will take place in Cardiff later this month.

Sineád's selection comes on the back of some fine performances in the Schools track & field and in the Tailteann Games and is richly deserved.

It is her second international, with the first having been the Schools Pentathlon held last year in Glasgow.

U11 All-Irelands / End of Year Review

Craughwell AC - 24 June, 2014 - 07:34

Year 3 for our under 11s finished as it has done each year - a sense of tremendous achievement, enormous potential and no shortage of drama.

While we left Donegal last year without medals, we knew we had areas where we could compete for medals in 2014 . And compete we did.


Craughwell AC - 24 June, 2014 - 07:26


Another season draws to a close and what a year 2014 has been for our under 10’s boys and girls.

Our journey started back in May whereby we competed in Regional County finals in Dangan. All our athletes did exceptionally well in all their individual events.

We continued onto the Connaught finals that were held in Sligo earlier this month. Even though it turned out a blistering hot day the athletes showed great enthusiasm and courage in their events. On the day Craughwell AC under 10’s came away with gold’s, silvers and bronze medals.

Our journey ended on Saturday at the All Ireland finals in Tullamore. Again a very hot day but the athletes showed great commitment and enthusiasm in their individual events.

From Tailteann to Tailinn to Tullamore!

Laura Anne Costello, Tara McNally, Michelle Duggan, Sinead Treacy, Aisling Forkan

On a busy busy weekend for athletics, Craughwell AC athletes were in action across the country and across Europe as far as Estonia. On Saturday in Santry, athletes from the club made a huge contribution to one of the best ever days for Connacht athletics at the inter-provincial schools track and field known as the Tailteann Games. Just 2 years ago, Sineád Gaffney had the honour of helping Connacht to win its first ever relay gold medal at the 2012 Tailteann Games when running the 3rd leg of the 4x300m in an historic victory for Connacht – its first time in over 50 years of competition to win a gold medal at these Games.

Well last Saturday in Santry, the club made an even bigger contribution to a repeat performance in the 4x300m with both Tara McNally and Sineád Treacy running on the 4x300m team who took Connacht’s second ever gold relay medal at these Games in a time of 2.43.20. Tara and Sineád joined Laura Anne Costello and Mayo’s Aisling Forkan as the triumphant quartet. Just moments earlier, another Craughwell AC athlete Michelle Duggan partnered Sineád, Laura Ann and Aisling to silver in the 4x100m with 47.81s!
