Funding Appeal Fire damaged but open for business. See details below and donate if possible
As a result of a recent act of vandalism in the form of an external fire and extensive internal smoke contamination
Sections of our recently finished extension need to be demolished and rebuilt.
Sections of our building have suffered extensive smoke damage and require specialised industrial cleaning before training can resume in those areas (Access to these areas is restricted at present.)
Much training equipment needs to be replaced as it was contaminated by toxic smoke and fumes. The list of equipment includes among others: High Jump Foams, Pole Vault Foams, Timing Equipment and replacement of Track surface. (Contaminated equipment is currently quarantined)
Despite these difficulties and after an initial clean-up effort drive, we have resumed training in a smaller section of the building.
We are currently fundraising to help restore the facilities to competition level, the club will need to generate an estimated €90,000 of its own funds to achieve this.
Please donate to our fundraising effort by clicking the "Donate Now" button above.
The club is run by a dedicated group of hard working coaches and committee members donating their time on a 100% voluntary basis.
Located in Nenagh, Co. Tipperary, Ireland, ours is the only club in Europe in ownership of its own indoor training facility with a 200m banked track, warm up area and a variety of athletics and general fitness training equipment. (See video below)
For over 20 years athletes of all ages from Nenagh and other athletic clubs across the province of Munster have developed their athletic skills and benefitted from a healthier lifestyle by partaking in the training sessions provided by our highly qualified coaches and helpers.
In addition to the building's core purpose as a winter training venue for Nenagh Olympic it is made available to other clubs and organisations also:
