The teams are virtually moving through Zambia and Mozambique before getting ready to head into the super power of World Athletics, Kenya.

Videos of our journey to date are currently posted on our Facebook, YouTube and Instagram pages. Week one saw the Irish Ambassador to South Africa Fionnuala Gilsenan post a message of support to Track-Attack. Next up in week 2 was a message from Nijel Amos from Botswana. Nijel was the Olympic silver medallist at the London games in 2012 in the 800metres. The third week saw Zimbabwe’s favourite son Bruce Grobbelaar post a message of support.

Keep an eye on our social media outlets to see what or who may appear as we virtually make our way to Magadan in the depths of Russia over the next 8 weeks.   


Borris-Ileigh Camogie Club Notes

February Sharpshooter Challenger

For the month of February, our target was to hit a collective total of 250,000 wall shots and with a week to go, that total has been achieved and smashed. With 7 days to go, the total now stands at 352,520.

The Challenge continues and now our sights are set at smashing the half million barrier. Throughout the Challenge we’ve had milestone shots where the participant who registered the shot was the lucky winner of a €50 voucher for Bourke Sports.
