Killeeneen is located outside Craughwell and this is the second year they have run this event. The back to school road race took place on Thursday 10th September. Monies raised go towards the Killeeneen National School building fund. Just over 80 athletes took part in the race. Jason Broderick won the race and completed the distance in 15.44 followed by Peter O Sullivan 17.24 and Johnny Lane was third in 18.14. The first lady home was Edel Kelly with a chip time of 19.47. In second place was Fionnuala Keane 20.47 and Aideen Gilchrist took third place in 23.08. Congrats to all!

We had 18 members taking part in the recent National Half Marathon Championships which were held alongside the Rock n Roll half marathon in Dublin. There was a strong showing too with two bronze medals making their way back across the Shannon from a notoriously slow course.
The 10th running of Athenry AC's Guess-Your-Own-Time/Handicap/Burger Run 10KM Championship took place on Friday, 24 July 2015.
James Corbett and his now usual band of helpers clicked into action at race HQ, St. Mary's GAA grounds out in Carnuan.
A record crowd of 45 toed the line at 8PM, to take in the old Fields 10KM course (with slight modifications, primarily the taking out of the level crossing, which this year was a very good idea as the gates in hte town came down as the 45 minute runners were coming through).
The Martin Egan 10KM in Beagh took part on Sunday, 12 July.
The result and prizes are attached as PDFs. A set of photos are also to be found here.

Day 2 of the County Track and Field took place on Sunday 28th June at the Regional Sports Centre, Dangan. A small but very active Athenry AC team took home 15 medals, including a massive haul of 6 medals for Anne Lyng who only decided on the morning of competition she was going to compete. Anne took gold in 100m, 200, and 800m and silver in 400m, long jump and high jump. Yvonne Knight, who took a bit of persuading to compete ended up with 4 golds - 400m, LJ, discus and high jump.
A great evening for Day One. The results of all events are attached. They have an old-style 80s feel to them with a fixed-width Courier font and wide formatting.
Sincere thanks to Iain Shaw and Brian Bruton for a good night's entertainment...sorry...sport.
Onwards to this Sunday.
