There was a fantastic performance by Ciaran Mc Gonagle, Burtonport in the Derry Walled City Marathon last weekend when he finished in 5th place in a time of 2:46:25. Ciaran has been making steady gains and this is great running amd some recognition for his efforts. Well done also to the other Gaoth Dobhair and Rosses finishers with Noel Boyd 4:27, Maureen Doherty 4:32, Niall Griffin 4:44, Kathleen Griffin 4:51, Sadie McDevitt 4:53.
On Sunday last a large number of our juveniles travelled to Shercock in county Cavan. There were some fine performances with gold for Patrick Marry in the U-12 High Jump with a pb jump of 1.27m and also a pb in the Long Jump with 3.97m for bronze, silver for Tara Geoghegan, Cruit in the U-10 Long Jump, silver for Joe Sharkey in the U-13 Shot Putt with a throw of 8.82m, silver for Emily Croke in the U-11 Shot Putt, gold for Gaoth Dobhair girl Leah Mc Garvey in the U12 Long Jump with a jump of 3.83m, gold for Emma Maloney, Keadue in the U-11 Turbo Javelin. A huge thanks to all the parents who travelled and apologies to all for the long day but the magnificent performances and medals won should make it up and hopefully we will have more successful days like this.
