Tidy Towns

As the Tidy Towns Adjudicators will be in the area shortly, the Group would encourage everyone to make an effort to keep their area clean and tidy. Now is the time to paint that wall and to tidy up the garden. Please don’t forget the bit outside of your property that we just couldn’t get to this year. Every little help is appreciated.


Wexford Day

To celebrate Wexford Day on the 23 June at 2.30, ‘The Village Park’ (incorporating Kirwan’s Garden, Peter’s Garden and the Landfill Area), members of the Group will be available to show people around the Park and to discuss future developments. It is hoped that the first of the wheelchair accessible looped walks will be completed by then. Entrance will be via the Memorial Park.

St. Pauls’s AC

As the Track and Field season is well under way, the club has been very busy lately. Our younger athletes were in fine form in Celbridge recently, competing in the Leinster Team Competition. The U9 girls finished 4th overall, whilst the U12 Girls also just finished outside the medals. Both teams competed very well in the relays finishing 2nd and 3rd respectively. There were some great individual performances on the day too, especially in the long races. These are excellent results from our ever improving young athletes.

Meanwhile Emma Owens continued her season with a trip to Santry recently to compete at the AAI Games where she added a silver medal to her growing collection. Emma also won the U23 discus & was 2nd in the Hammer in the Leinster U23 and Senior Track and Field in Tullamore. Shane Connick (U23 800m) and Kieran Murphy (Senior Hammer) also competed at the same meet with both athletes securing PBs, finishing 2nd and 1st respectively in their events. Well done to these 3 athletes, their hard training is evident in their results.

Our recent club competition was a great success, with some great performances by our younger athletes. Well done to all!

Online entry is now open for our annual 5 mile road race on 7th September at www.runireland.com Lastly, we wish our juvenile athletes the best of luck in the Leinster Track and Field Championships in Tullamore.
