Tymon Park 2014 League 4

on .

Our last Cross Country Juvenile League event of 2014 was at the Templeogue side of Tymon Park on a tricky and confusing course around several interconnected fields. Parents and coaches covered plenty of ground trying to watch the races!

We had 37 MSB juvenile athletes competing and needless to say, our club colours featured strongest of all the clubs again. 

U9 Girls - Saoirse Nic Seoin (5th), Ava Casey, Aoife Sheridan and Molly Olyphant competing very strongly.

U9 Boys - powerful running from all four who featured in the top 10 - Tom Bolton (1st), Patrick O'Reilly, Lucas Girigon and Ethan Monaghan.

U10 Girls - Aoife Brown 1st again, brilliant; good running too from Alison Callinan, Zoe Cocquart and especially well done to Sinead Dowling on her first race for MSB.

U10 Boys - a wonderful team of 8 great runners, what an impact they have on juvenile cross country running in Dublin - Louis Woodger, Adam Nagle, Ben O'Neill, James Monaghan, Oisin Tebite, David Richmond, Donal Fitzmaurice, and Oisin O'Shaughnessy.

U11 Girls - Sadhbh Mohan 1st again, awesome to watch every week; Anastasia Casey getting better every week.

U11 Boys - what a race, James Bolton in joint 1st place!

U12 Girls - Aisling Sheridan (5th), Aimee Fitzmaurice, Leah O'Neill, Roisin Fitzmaurice and Aoibhinn Richmond - well done all five girls.

U12 Boys - Triain Rebega (1st place), Cian Prior (7th) and Finn Woodger - superb effort boys.

U13 Girls - Dearbha O'Reilly 1st again! So strong. Great running too from Sarah O'Gorman.

U13 Boys - Robert Rebega 4th, well done.

U14 Girls - Aisling Mohan 3rd, great effort.

U15 Girls - Katie Duggan 1st for the second time in four league races - brilliant. Hannah O'Neill, better and stronger every week - keep it up on the track in the spring.

Well done again to all. Next up is the National Even Ages, next Sunday at Santry Demesne where we will feature a strong field of MSB athletes. PLEASE SUPPORT YOUR CLUB MEMBERS. We have juvenile athletes competing at U11, U13, U15 and U17. First race is the U11 Girls at11.30am sharp.See you there.

Our U10 Girls claimed the team Bronze medal over the 1,000m distance and Aoife Brown lead the way winning the individual Silver medal with strong performances also from Saoirse Nic Seoin, Ava Casey (both running-up from U9), Alison Callinan and Ruth Linnane. Great running girls.


Our U10 Boys team won team Gold - marvellous running boys - lead home by Tom Bolton (running up from U9) who claimed 4th place and great running also from Louie Woodger, Adam Nagle, Adam Brennan, Ben O'Neill, James Monaghan, Ethan Monaghan (running up from U9), Oisin Tebite, Oisin O'Shaughnessy, Donal Fitzmaurice, and Remus Onitiu.

Our U14 Boys worked very hard in a very competitive age group - well done Sam Turner, Paul Morgan and Owen Watt.


And finally we had great efforts also in U16 Girls from Rachel Furlong (running up from U15) and in U16 Boys from Mark O'Connor (running up from U15) and Adam Watt.

Castleknock 5k Sunday 13th July 2014

on .

There was something special about the inaugural Castleknock 5K held last Sunday...!!!!!

             Maybe it was the course, a fast first downhill mile, into our wonderful Pheonix Park, a tour through Farmleigh, a tough climb up to the Castleknock College gates, a majestic finish in front of the College itself. 

            Maybe it was the participants, all in flying form and the reasons they had for taking part, the spirit of Rory Doherty, the funds they were raising for Cystic Fibrosis, the quest to raise awareness for organ donation, the desire to do something for a good cause or simply the joy of running or being out for a walk in the open air with friends and family.

            Maybe it was the enthusiasm of the organizers, Rory’s family and friends, the sponsors, the donators, the supportors, the stewards, the gardai, the OPW, the Zumba dancers, and all who combined to make this a race to remember.   

            One thing was agreed, race organizer Kate O’Neill had a lot to do with making it a special day, Kieran Gallagher’s skills at coordinating were evident and without Eamon Dolan on the PA we’d be lost.
