What a great weekend we had at the national athletic finals which were held in Athlone on the last weekend in August with both our athletes returning home to Kerry with pewter medals [4th place] in their pockets. Considering the extremely high standard on display this was a marvellous achievement for both Oisin Maunsell and Muireann McKenna who were competing in the u10 hurdles and marathon respectively. Oisin took to the track on Saturday evening and qualified comfortably for the semi-final which took place very early on Sunday morning.However, the early hour did not deter Oisin and he ran very strongly qualifying in second place. In the final, Oisin came home in 3rd place but our joy was shortlived when we found out a little later that his final was being rerun as a child had been impeded during the race. However, it's a testament to Oisin's ability and strength of character that he was able to put the disappointment behind him and run a brilliant second final earning him a well deserved pewter medal for his great endeavours. We were all so proud of him and once again we congratulate him on a marvellous achievement. On a very warm Sunday morning, our marathon team which included Muireann McKenna took to the roads around Athlone to run a gruelling 7km. As the clock ticked by we waited patiently for their arrival on the track.The 4 girls ran a very clever race, packing well and all completing the race among the first fifteen finishers. When the results were officially announced it confirmed what we believed, that the team were in 4th place winning pewter medals. This was a great achievement and we congratulate the girls especially our own Muireann McKenna who did us all proud.
