St. Paul’s AC

The first day of the County championships kicked off in New Ross on Sunday. This provided a perfect opportunity to put the winter work to the test and the results speak for themselves with all our athletes wearing club colours with pride and representing the club very well.

Highlights included Bonnie Murphy’s win in the U9 100m followed home by Becky Duggan in 3rd. Becky also won bronze in the long jump. The U9 relay of Aoife Devereux, Becky Duggan, Amelia Rees and Bonnie Murphy also had a fantastic victory while Kate Roche won bronze in the U10 long jump.

Our U12s won two bronze medals with Sarah O’Donoghue competing in the 600m and Maeve Hayes the Turbo javelin. These athletes then joined up with Phillippa Murphy and Ava Donohue to add another bronze in the U13 relay.

Meanwhile, our U9 boys relay team of Conn Mernagh, Bobby Byrne, Eoghan Byrne and Matthew Wickham won silver.Reece De La Cour picked up a gold medal in the U12 Turbo javelin while Tommy Wickham (100m) and Harry Kehoe (600m) were 2nd and 3rd respectively in their U13 events.

A further relay medal was added when the U13 team of Tommy Wickham, Daniel Halligan, Reece De La Cour and Harry Kehoe narrowly beat Menapians to claim the title. (cont’d above) (cont’d) Ger Maloney was also in action, competing in Gowran on Monday in Leinsters. This follows on from his silver medal at the national 10k and bronze in the county intermediate race.

Good luck to everyone competing on Day 2 of the county championships on Sunday and to our relay teams in Greystones next weekend. There’s no high or long jump training on Saturday. We have made a great to the season, looking forward to seeing the fantastic attendance at training continuing!
