Club Success at Cork County Championships CIT, Day 1 Sunday 2nd May

What an amazing day on day one of the County Championships in CIT last Sunday. Every athlete jumped, threw and ran their heart out and did so well in all events. With over 1300 athletes taking part  there was great turn out from the club. We are very proud of each and everyone’s efforts!

The club was thrilled to have athletes across all ages and disciplines and it was particularly good for the Club to have first timers in the County U9’s.  It’s a great experience for them and they did the club proud. Well done!
