East Cork Track Event in Carrignavar

A wonderful evening of running was held in Carrignavar on Thursday. It was very well organised and a credit to the East Cork Division and the host Club Carrignavar AC.

We were well represented by two Master Athletes and several Juniors and lots of juveniles. Frank O'Brien had a great run in the Junior 3000m to claim an easy victory. 

In the Master's 3000m John Hennessy ran a classic race which was a lesson in how to win a race. John bided his time until the final straight where he cut loose to claim victory in fine style. Ger O'Regan running his first 3000m on track had an excellent run also to get a new PB.

Don't forget you can still enter for the races there next week See previous post and just text Sally.

Moyne AC Summer Games & Leevale Summer Evening T&F 2020




There was a welcome return to track meets for our junior (u20) athletes. The first of these was the Moyne AC Summer Games held on Saturday, 25th of July on a wet and wind-swept track. Our juniors took to the line with top senior and junior athletes. First up was Paul Hartnett (u19) who ran a good race to come home in 9:15.4 in his first track event since 2018.  Later in the evening the rain cleared but it still was cool with a strong wind which paid havoc for fast times.  Jack O’Shea (u20) and Frank O’Brien (u20) toed the line and finished 6th and 9th respectively in the “B Mile” posting excellent pb’s of 4:27.1 and 4:34.3 against stiff opposition.     
On a very pleasant Tuesday evening in C.I.T., John Stelman (u18) was very pleased with his run in the 1,500mB race to post a time of 4:32.86 at the Leevale Summer Evening T&F meet.  Then on windy Thursday evening he went on to record 9:48.23 for the 3,000m.  U20 athletes, Jack and Frank both ran excellent races in the 800mA race with Jack coming home in 1:57.25 and Frank in 1:58.44. Frank recorded a pb while Jack posted his second fastest time.  Jack finished 5th and was closely followed home by Frank in 6th.
Congratulations to both Moyne AC and Leevale AC for running superbly organised meets during the final week of July amid these unprecedented times.   Athletes were all delighted and very appreciative to be back on track again.  Well done to all involved.
