Conor Duggan National Sprint Champion!

Craughwell AC - 21 July, 2014 - 08:02

National U18 100m Champion Conor Duggan
pictured with Damian O'Boyle (U18 Steeplechase Silver Medallist) and Sinead Treacy (U18 100m Bronze Medallist)

Conor Duggan had his finest athletic achievement to date when he stormed to victory in the U18 100m final at the National Track & Field Championships in Tullamore recently. Having won his heat comfortably in 11.23s, Conor ran a breath-taking final to take the victory by 0.07s in a time of 11.27s. Conor’s steady progression in athletics is an inspiration for many and should be a huge motivation for other sprinters to continue to put in the effort and success will follow.

Read on for details of Conor's steady progression from when he joined the club 6 years ago as an U12.

Tuam AC Notes 14 July 2014

Tuam AC - 14 July, 2014 - 22:27

The road race season is in full swing with no shortage of races and Tuam AC are well represented everywhere. We had a great turnout in Headford last weekend and it was great to see Assumpta Meenaghan representing Tuam once again and Tim Geraghty had a massive sprint finish, Sean O’Morain took a break from his very successful organization of the Fit4Life programme and put on his racing shoes and we were also delighted to see some first time runners including Emilio Fusciardi who was taking part in his first 8k race and really enjoyed it. We also had a number of prize winners including Tommy Joe Whyte, Clare Rowe, Ann Marie Miskell and Andrea Ridge, it was great to see the Tuam AC ladies taking prizes and they were well deserved as Headford is a tough course with serious competition. It was a top class event as always and we would like to thank the organizers, stewards, Headford Gardai and everybody who provided refreshments for a very enjoyable evening. The action moved to Killererin on Sunday for the 2nd running of the Killererin GAA Ladies Football 10k and 5k. Unfortunately some of our members were missing as they were in Castlebar for the Connacht Final but we still had a good crew in Killererin and the highlights included Dan O’Rourke finishing 3rd in the 10k, Mark Rabbitte finishing 3rd in the 5k and winning his category in a very impressive 21 mins and it is always a pleasure to see Roger Rushe’s name appear in the results and he was joined by Audrey Greaney and Caroline Mahon. Other notable performances included Derek Naughton who also had a fine run in Headford. Martin Hynes who won his category, Tim Geraghty who ran a great time and Shane Crisham another new recruit to Tuam AC and a great addition to our team.

Jamie Fallon Takes National Junior 5K Title

Craughwell AC - 9 July, 2014 - 22:05

Jamie Fallon had a fantastic run in the National Junior 5000m in Cork IT at the weekend when winning it in a time of 15.19.87. If you were watching it on aertv.ie, the commentators were very impressed with Jamie's performance as the race was combined with the U23s and Jamie placed 4th overall in the field - shaking it up with athletes 5 years older at the head of the race.

Also in action, Cathriona Farrell took the National U23 High Jump title with a leap of 1.65m. Cathriona was nursing an injury picked up recently in training and retired from the competition after the 1.65m jump as she had won it at that stage.

Conor Duggan had 2 top-drawer performances in qualifying for the finals of the U20 100m and 200m sprints where he placed 8th in the 100m in 11.20 and 5th in the 200m in 22.51. Both PBs and club records (wind-assisted but we haven't been ruling those out for club records since in many races we would not have wind guages in operation).

Peadar Harvey placed 4th in the U23 800m in 2.00.20 with Gavin Cooney 8th in 2.06.64 - a strong performance from Gavin who has been successfully combining his hurling with 800m training and came very close to hitting his target of 2:05 in this race. Damian O’Boyle placed 8th in the U20 1500m in 4.08.92 with Neil Greaney 12th in 4.16.23.

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.
