update 27th May
It was the turn of our younger athletes this weekend with the Munster U9/11 team and individual and U12 & 13 field event championships. We had a lot of inexperienced athletes competing at this level for the first time. Our numbers were also small because of Holy Communion and Confirmations on this weekend so we could only field one relay team.
Anna Paxman at 11 yrs of age was probably our most experienced athlete in Cork and she continues to add to her growing reputation with a third place finish in the U12 High Jump competition. She can now look forward to her running events in two weeks time.
In the team event our U9 boys won the bronze medals in the 60m. Fionn Tucker, Paddy McSherry and Harry Quinn all sprinted very well and congrats to the boys.
We had no other medals in Cork but we had excellent performances from Molly Madden U9 sprint, Emily O'Neill and Sarah Long U11 600m and Oscar Griffin continues to improve with a PB in his U11 Turbo Javelin. U11 Hannah Larkin wasn't far off the medals in her long jump competition also.
Well done also to sisters Aisling (300m & Long Jump) and Soirse Ryan (600, Long Jump and Relay) competing in their first Munster event. Mikey Ryan should be proud of his performance in the Long Jump.
We had only one relay team on the day and while out of the medals did themselves and the club proud. Well done to our U11 team of Soirse Ryan, Sarah Long, Emily O'Neill & Hannah Larkin.
Well done to all our Athletes!
We are still waiting on official results to be released.

Update 20th may
The following athletes have been entered to compete at this weekends Munster T&F finals. (Note: we've had a very poor response rate asking for confirmation of attendance. This is impacting the number of relay teams we can enter. Only two relay teams entered (Boys and Girls U11) and both are still TBC if we can actually field the teams.. If you can make time to reply by 5pm today, Monday). We will update again later in the week.
