Welsh Champ: Having achieved the 'B' standard for the European junior championships the onus was on Nessa Millet to repeat this so it was off to Swansea for the Welsh junior championships. Once again the prevailing weather conditions were not conducive to top class performances with a very strong wind in the home straight.

This did not deter Nessa from having a go and striding away from her opponents it was all about the clock and the wind down to the finish. A very happy champion with 61.21 seconds meant the trip was well worth it and should see her being ratified next week when the Irish team is announced for the European juniors in Rieti, Italy.

Wolfhill Delight: Blessed with another beautiful evening and a fantastic crowd we had several P.B.'s, many keen duels along with several friendships and some mighty banter making the tough course in Wolfhill a significant must for all the fit4life enthusiasts.

Thanks to JFSports for sponsorship of the league and special thanks to the Leech family for looking after us so well on the evening and to all 184 for making it such an enjoyable event. The 5th stage is scheduled for Moneenroe on the 10th July where no doubt Breda and her team will have a big welcome for everyone walker, jogger or those that want to race.

Community Games: Congratulations to all those that took part in the Laois and Carlow community games over the weekend, especially well done to those that qualified for the National finals in Athlone. The Laois event was hosted on the club grounds and thanks to Ben and the team for having everything in order.

European Team Championships: A big number from the club travelled to the Morton stadium over the weekend for possibly the biggest athletic event ever hosted in Ireland. Ireland with a relatively young team finished a fine 7th overall (our highest placing to date in this competition) to ensure that we stay in the 1st Division next year. Despite the poor weather conditions with a very strong wind reading over 8 metres/second at times and plenty of rain some very World class performances were registered.

Activity Camp: Scheduled for the track from the 6th to the 9th August the clubs Annual camp will no doubt attract plenty of interested participants. Entry forms are currently available on the club website or in the clubhouse and the fee is €30. The camp is open to all Primary school children.



St Mary's Cemetery Mass will be held on next Monday 8th July at 7.30pm

A number of meetings of the JPC have taken place to plan this year's Mass and it was decided the following measures would further improve the experience for all concerned.

Only cars with valid invalidity passes will be allowed into the Cemetery. Car parking will be available in the vicinity of the Cemetery. The locations will be published in the newsletters in the coming weeks. There will be a drop off point outside the main gates. Hopefully this will ensure that the Emergency Services will have full access to the Cemetery and also help to prevent unwanted items getting into the area in car boots.

Very tight restrictions on vehicles entering the Cemetery will apply from 2pm and the gates will be closed altogether from 6.30pm. People are advised to have all maintenance on graves completed by 2pm.

Vehicles will not be permitted to leave the Cemetery for twenty minutes after Mass concludes. This is to allow all pedestrians to exit safely.

Congratulations are extended to Marcus Lawlor, Ballycrogue who represented Ireland for the first time at a major Senior Event when he competed in the 200m in the European Team Championships in Santry, Dublin last weekend.

Marcus finished 5th in the 200m event in what contained a quality field in a time of 21.71 with the race being won by European Senior Outdoor and Indoor 400m Champion Pavel Maslak of the Czech Republic with renowed Belgian International Sprint Athlete Jonathan Borlee in 2nd position.

Marcus also ran in the 4 x 100m relay where Ireland were disqualified but will surely benefit from this experience following on from his record wins in the Irish Schools Track and Field Championships.
