Gerard & Eanna star as club gears up for Connacht Indoors

No doubting the two stars of the week as Gerard O’Donnell & Eanna Madden both won medals at the Athletics Ireland Senior Indoors in Abbotstown. For full details, see report elsewhere on this page but well done to both on a fantastic indoor season.

Congrats also to Cathal McElgunn who set a new indoor personal best of 52.41 in Saturday’s 400m heats and he will be looking to go a bit faster at next weekend’s Connacht Indoors in Athlone.

This weekend is a big one for the club with almost 80 athletes in action, from age 10 & 11, so we will be looking for a lot of help from athletes & parents to ensure both days go smoothly.

In terms of transport, if parents intends travelling with their children to Athlone, please inform club officials immediately as there is huge pressure of space on the bus and we will need as many parents as possible to travel with their own children.

Competition starts at 10 am each morning so all athletes will need to be in Athlone IT by 9.15 am at the very latest. All athletes must wear a Club vest, club t-shirt or a royal blue or plain white t-shirt. No football jerseys of any kind will be permitted by organisers.

The buses will leave from Carrick Sports Complex on both mornings at 7.45 am sharp - please be on time. Each athlete must pay for their own events at €4 per event. There is a €5 charge for the bus.

The timetable and order of events for both days is available on the Athletics Ireland website under the fixture section.

Any queries, contact us through our Club Facebook page at Facebook.com/carrickonshannon.ac or via text message to Club Secretary John Connolly at 087-9446961.
