Next Monday, 8 May. the Midleton AC Monday night training moves from the all-weather hockey pitch back to the Midleton College rugby pitch/cricket field. As before, it will be from 6.00 pm until 7.00 pm.
For those of you who don't know it, the field is at the end of the small residential road going away from the back of Super Valu. There is plenty of parking on the road at the back of the Super Valu carpark.While grass is the best surface to train on, some areas of the field may be a little rough, so just be aware of that.
There is no official training this Wed. evening due to our race on Thursday.

Our ladies team of Eileen Leahy, Louise Barry and Christine Murphy took bronze losing out by only one point for the silver. Our other ladies who ran supporting the team were Anne Marie Perry, Margaret Twohig, Emer Hayes and Joan McCarthy and all had fine runs.
