FOR most athletes the curtain has come down on the Track and Field season which began last April with the Leevale Open Sports in Cork and the County Schools Championships.
As always some will be very pleased with how it went for them while more will have been disappointed having been hampered by injury and other setbacks. For Kerry Athletes overall it was quiet successful with good performances at Munster, National and International level.
Emma Prendiville, Laura Crowe, Claire Fitzgerald and Mairead O'Neill all had some excellent results as did Adam King, Kayleigh Cronin, Hannah O'Sullivan and Cillian Donovan in Juvenile Competition. We will hope for more progression from these and others over the coming seasons.
Well done to Tommy O'Brien, An Ríocht who recorded a time of 3 hours 1 minute in the Longford Marathon on Sunday.
An Ríocht 5K
THE second round of the An Ríocht 5K series will be held this coming Friday with a 7pm start. Following a great response to the first event when 280 participated there should be another large entry for race number 2.
