Congratulations to Fodhla McFadden who represented Pobailscoil Gweedore at the Ulster Track & Field Final at the weekend in the Antrim Forum. Fodhla won a fantastic silver medal in the Triple jump setting a new pb of 10.51m. She is now qualified for the Irish Schools Final in Tullamore in two weeks time.
There were a large number of our club athletes who participated in the WAAR event last weekend as individuals or part of a team with some great performances. It was a great course and enjoyed by all. Edward Harkin performed brilliantly to place second overall in the individual event.
The school sports days was a great success with many of our juvenile athletes demonstrating the work they are putting in. Roisin won the 1-3 section closely followed by Keadue and Loch an Luir. In the 4-6 section it was a victory for Acres by one point over Derrybeg with Dore close behind.
There will be a child protection course in Ionad Naomh Padraig on Friday 22nd May from 6-9pm. It is essential that all adults involved or helping out with coaching should do this course. Names to Ita on 0871309536.
