Munster U13-U19 Indoor Championships – Nenagh, Sunday 21st Feb 2016

Another solid performance from the club on the second day day of the Indoor Championships in Nenagh.

It was great to see Alan O’Donovan back competing last weekend and running so well.  He secured second place  in a competitive pack of  U 17 boys 800m.    We’re delighted to see the club represented in the older boys category and it’s a great motivation for our younger boys to work toward.  Well done Alan!
