17-23-04-2017 MASTERS AND JUVENILES.
We had athletes out in the masters and non championship juvenile races in Portarlington today, Unfortunately we were very low in juveniles with only Caoimhe and Emma Jane Cuddy running ,both in the u/11 500m race, they ran well ,battled all the way,finishing 3rd and 5th respectively. In the Masters/Junior ladies race Louise Stack led the field home, and took the Junior title at her ease, finishing the 3k race in 10.57. She was supported by the Walsh trio, Amy coming 4th(12.58), Charlie next in 5th (14.14) and Katie in 6th(14.39). The girls took the honours in the team event on the day, a good outing. In the masters ladies race Anna Duggan was our first lady home in 5th place(12.16) ,Anna also took L/45 1st prize. Maria Cuddy 7th(12.24) Catherine Ryan 8th(12.45) Olwyn Larkin 9th(13.00) 2nd L/45, Lucy Dunne 15th(13.51) Patricia Naughton 17th(13.54) Niamh Kavanagh 20th(14.24) Elaine Moore 22nd(14.44) Julieka Cahill Reid 23rd (15.01) and Margaret Mary Grant 27th(16.23) completed the scoring for our ladies. Maria ,Catherine and Patricia took team silver(o35) and Anna,Olwyn and Lucy won the gold team(o45) Next up was the Masters and Junior men Tony Reilly was 2nd home(19.28) 2nd o/45. Aengus Burke was next in 5th(20.23) and 3rd o/45. Follwed by Richie Reid in 7th(20.30) and Joe Walsh 20th (23.26) completed the scoring giving silver o/35 team to our men. Our Junior men took gold team, placings as follows, Fionn Marum 6th (22.45) David Faulkner 9th(25.09) Tiarnan Marum 10th(28.31) and Adam McEvoy 11th (29.40) Numbers on the day were small but credit to everyone that came out to run. Especially good to see David Adam and Tiarnan wearing the singlet today. Run of the day to Louise Stack for me, a shining example in the club of exactly how it has to be done to improve and reach the potential that is in there. Well done to all the coaches working in the background, they deserve as much credit as the athletes. Set of pictures to follow.
Thanks to Steven and Caroline as always, big work involved behind the scenes

Well done to Peter, Benny and the u16 boys who sealed 7th place in the AICC's in Cork this morning. The boys had a tough day yesterday but bounced back to do themselves and the club proud. 💚🏀
Hard luck to the u16 girls who lost out to a very strong Liffey Celtics side 41-21 in this mornings semi finals. Despite the loss, the girls now have a 3rd/4th spot playoff game to look forward to. Either placing wouldn't be too shabby considering the depth of talent they have faced this weekend. We are super proud and wish them all the luck in the world. 💚🏀

Great work by everyone in our team work challenge in tonights class. When talent runs out, guts and determination take over. When it comes to test day and you run out of steam in front of the panel, start getting sloppy and forgetting things, I'll simply say" you should've came to team work Thursday".
The best things in life are on the other side of fear.
We hope you all had a great Easter weekend. Just a reminder that the studio is open as normal this week. See you all in class.
