The annual club superdraw will now take place on Friday Dec 2nd in “The Spinning Wheel” Patrick St Templemore during our Annual Party Night. We appeal to all ticket sellers to finish selling tickets for this years draw and bring to the Athletic clubhouse this week any morning from 9.30 – 11.30am, or evening 5.30 – 9pm. Anyone wishing to support the Club’s efforts to raise money to fund the ongoing activities on the track, can purchase tickets at €2 each.
Club Party: As previously mentioned, the annual club party will take place in the Spinning Wheel on Dec 2nd. This is a free night with ‘Finger Food’ being served courtesy of the proprietor Richard Ingram. Proceedings start at 9.15pm. Athlete of the year presentations will be awarded during the party. U/14 ages may attend so long as they are under parental supervision. We hope to see all members young and old, from walkers to runners, throwers and jumpers.
Cross Country: A great day tinged with disappointment can best describe Sunday last at the Munster Championship in Clonmel Racecourse. Laura Herke won a bronze medal as a member of the 3rd placed Tipperary team U/9. Then Jack Nevin finished 12th to secure a bronze medal (individual), and Munster silver (team) for Tipperary. Ben Buttimer also won bronze on the Tipperary u/15 boys team.
The disappointment was in the GU/11 where Kate Herke finished 4th overall but the race was started unofficially and will now be re-run at the Munster B Cross Country in Limerick Racecourse on this Sunday 20th November.
