More Superb Action at Connacht T&F Day 2

Craughwell AC - 15 June, 2015 - 07:31

at the Connacht Championshps in Claremorris

Another busy day of athletics in Claremorris and another highly successful day for the club with many superb highlights throughout the day and athletes taking home a huge haul of 31 Connacht titles, 21 silver and 9 bronze medals. Most notable performance on this occasion was in the jumps where Jerry Keary leaped a massive 1.81m in the U16 Boys high jump to set a new senior club record for the event, just eclipsing the 1.80m best set by Tomas Keehan a number of years ago.

There was some fantastic jumping from the girls also, with Lorraine Delaney claiming a new PB of 1.54m to take the U16 girls title and Leanagh Gilligan doing likewise in the U14 girls with a massive leap of 1.51m.

The long jumpers were not to be out done either with some fantastic jumping and many Connacht titles, particularly from Aidan Conneely (6.01m, U19 Boys), Matthew McKernan (5.99m, U18 Boys) and Daniel Callanan-Forde (5.97m, U16 Boys). There were impressive performances also from the girls, in particular the U16s who took places 1-4 in their event with Lorraine Delaney claiming the title with 4.70m a fraction ahead of Laura Cunningham on 4.65m. The haul of long jump medals keeps the club at the helm of Connacht long jumping with 10 Connacht titles over the 2 days of Connacht championships and 11 other podium finishes.

There were plenty of fine performances on the track also, in particular in the U13 boys where 4 of the top 5 places went to the club, U13 60m where Shaun Gilligan won the title, U14 200m where Freya Bohan and Mia Waters both featured in the top 4, U15 100m where Siona Lawless and Alison Leahy placed 1st and 4th, and U19 sprints where Sinead Treacy took home both 100m and 200m Connacht titles.

Saturday 13th of June was a day of firsts for many of our Craughwell AC members in the Forest Marathon in Portumna. Noreena Murray Morrissey set out at 7.00am to complete her first 50k in a fantastic time of 05:07. Norenna an experienced marathoner made her first attempt at this distance and took it in her stride, looking in control throughout. Well done Norenna on a fantastic achievement. Louise O’Rourke put in a stunning performance in the 100k. Louise recently completed a 50 mile race so felt ready to step up to the 100k distance. Paced to perfection and looking in control at all times Louise crossed the line in 13:24. More to come from Louise and Norenna over these Ultra distances.

Craughwell Champions of Connacht!

Craughwell AC - 8 June, 2015 - 10:03

Craughwell AC's U11 Squad at the Connacht Championships in Claremorris

Yet another brilliant day of athletics from the club on yet another day of challenging weather conditions. The day kicked off with the relays where the club had some outstanding performances taking all 4 Connacht titles in the boys races and bronze in the U9, U10 and U11 girls relays and 4th place in the U12 girls relay. Huge achievements all around! Full details of our performances are below. Well done to everyone!!

Hats off to Claremorris AC on their fine facilities – something that our parents and athletes know we are aspiring to ourselves on our new field in Craughwell. Before you read on I just want to take a brief opportunity to highlight our efforts in this regard and the need for your support. We hope to receive significant grant aid to construct our own tartan sprint lanes and additional long jump facilities this year but need to fund-raise €40,000 to accompany the grant and loans. Please support our GWR relay challenge by raising €100 per family – this will bring in most of what we need. We are trying to maximise the funds raised during June and will be holding the relay in September. If you don’t already have a sponsorship card, please ask any coach or contact myself at 087 6591879 or tobinm1@yahoo.com. Please bring your completed sponsorship cards up to training as early as possible and give to your age group coordinator, thanks!!

World Record Relay Attempt Update

Craughwell AC - 5 June, 2015 - 07:31

Our Guinness World Record relay attempt has become a bigger event and is evolving into a health-themed day for all ages with a focus on mental and physical health, while at the same time the 12-hour relay world record attempt will be running throughout the day. If you are involved in a charity or business with a mental or physical health focus and would like to attend with information on the day, please contact Tracy at  087 8810737.

Because of the expansion in scope, we are pushing out the date to September when the schools are back to give us more time to pull everything together. The new date is the last Sunday of September – Sept 27th September. Mark it in your diaries!

The associated fund-raising campaign will continue in earnest in the meantime and we will be upping the focus on this in June and early July and again in September.

We are currently at €2000 of a fund-raising target of €40000 for the development of our new facility. If you haven’t already received a sponsorship card from the coaches, please ask. With over 300 families in the club if everyone was to fill a card with 20 lines of €5 each, this will bring in a massive €30,000.

This plus donations, clothes recycling etc will get us over the line. And remember people can sponsor a square metre of ground for €20. We are in the process of getting a large billboard map of the field printed which will show your sponsored metres.

Please text Michael at 087 6591879 with whatever amount you have currently raised on your sponsorship cards so that I can post a regular update on the thermometer on the website. Thanks for the support and lets ramp-up the efforts to hopefully deliver our tartan sprint lanes later this year.
