St. Paul’s AC

Firstly a huge thank you to everyone who supported our recent Sponsored Marathon Relay, which was a big success, your continued support is very much appreciated. Our juvenile track and field season came to a close with Tara Connick at the All Irelands in Tullamore last week. Tara competed in the U16 hammer gaining a new PB, but just finished outside the top 8. As an athlete who has only taken up the event, she shows great potential for the future, well done!

This has been a great year for our juvenile athletes, with a huge amount of younger athletes joining the club, notable athletes include Tara Connick, Maeve Hayes and Gergely Pap who all reached All-Ireland level. With many others showing serious potential, we expect this list to be much longer this time next year! Our juvenile athletes are now finished training until late August/early September when cross country training will commence.

A big well done to 4 of our senior athletes who helped their teams qualify for the National League Final next month, these athletes were: Emma Owens and Denise Wickham (Wexford County Women), Shane Connick (Wexford County Men) and Kieran Murphy (Guesting with Menapians men). Preparations are well under way for our 5 mile road race on 7th September, which we are delighted to say, has been sponsored by Rochefreight. Enter online at www.runireland.com, see the St Pauls Athletic Club Facebook page for a link to the entry page. Fun runners and walkers are all welcome to join in with this event!
