Well done to all our pupils who have represented us so well in competitions at all levels this year. They have been a credit to our school, our parish and their parents. Sincere thanks, also, to the team mentors, local GAA and camogie volunteers and to all who have supported them in any way in developing their skills and talents through the years.
Ní neart go cur le chéile!
Youthful Drom speedster Conor Gleeson is the first athlete past the post in the Track-Attack Marathon Series as he can no longer be caught at the head of the table in the Tigers group and did so with the luxury of having three weeks to spare.
Conor is a tough and honest competitor that will leave every ounce of effort on the track each night and his never say die attitude is a joy to watch every week. He has dominated his group from the word go and is a very popular winner of the Series title. Some superb running last Monday night by 3 different members of the one family resulted in them all grabbing the leading spot of three different groups in the Track-Attack Marathon Series.
Jacqueline & Kate Minogue with Caroline Murray
Jacqueline’s daughter Kate has been one of the leading Track-Attackers within the entire Series. The clock simply doesn’t lie. On week one, Kate went from gun to tape in a time of 16:05. In week nine, she covered the same 2km distance in a time of 13:43 and as a result she has virtually guaranteed herself the Puma’s title. The betting have been suspended in the remaining 5 groups of the Track-Attack Marathon Series!! With 3 rounds to go, the destination of each of the 5 titles is firmly in the hands of their current leaders. Although they each have a title winning lead, complacency or missing a night could still see them piped at the post as there is still a healthy battle going on behind them in the chasers quest to create an upset.
Michael O’Brien, Daniel Madden & Tom Shanahan
The Track-Attack 147 Challenge proved to be a huge success and we would like to thank everyone how helped out with it in any way. Thanks to the athletes on the night who all turned up displaying the colours of the various snooker balls including a few cue-balls!! Thanks also to the people who turned up to support on the night and to those who bought and sold tickets.
The finishing time was 12 hours, 15 minutes and 6 seconds. Nobody predicted the time exactly but 25 people forecasted 12:15:00 so a draw was held and the lucky winner of the €200 was Jimmy Chute.
Track-Attack on Tour
The Track-Attackers were out in force at the Drom 5km recently in support of our near neighbours. A huge congrats to everyone who travelled on the night and performed brilliantly. It was a tough but enjoyable run and top marks to the organising camogie club for a job well done. On Friday night last, Tom Shanahan produced his best performance to date when dipping under the 20 minute mark for the first time for the 5km distance in Ballyskenagh, Co. Offaly. Tom clocked 19:53, a just reward for the work he has been putting in, in recent months. Michael Murray and Michael O’Brien also lined up on the night with both clocking impressive times in 19:22 and 21:27 respectfully.
