Lots of Athenry Winners at Galway Indoor Championship

Athenry juvenile athletes enjoyed a very successful outing at the Galway indoor Athletics Championship held in Athlone IT International Arena last weekend (18 January). The first race of the day saw the Athenry U13 girls team, Aoibhe Deeley, Ciara McDonagh, Sinead Lyons, Saoirse Healey and Freya Bohan, get the club off to a flying start winning a gold medal with a superb performance in the 4x100m relay.

Athenry AC & Ruthann In FIT Print

Ruthann Sheahan was deservedly featured in last Thursday's edition of the Irish Independent for her ultra running exploits. The report gives some insights into the training regime of the two time national record holder plus some of the crazier aspects of 100 mile training weeks (boiled eggs & jam for one). This recognition is long overdue for someone who came 7th in the world in last year's 24hr road race & on current form I'm sure she will improve on that in the coming year.

Uneven Ages National XC Championship Next Weekend

Athenry Juvenile AC Athletes will be taking to the road this coming weekend for the Uneven Ages National Cross Country Championship which will be held on Sunday 15th December in Waterford.   Athenry AC will have a number of teams qualified to represent the club at this All Ireland event as well as a number of individual athletes who will be running for Galway as a result of strong individual performances at the Connacht Championship.

Best of luck to Jane-Ann!

Last Friday night saw Athenry AC celebrate our Christmas party in Dowling’s Bar in the town (A big thanks to Yvonne & Will for putting us up in style) but prior to that we had the pre-Christmas party party (if that makes sense) as our local speedster & pain guru, Jane-Ann Meehan, held the official opening of her brand new Physiotherapy & Performance Clinic in the recently built Primary Health Care Centre.
