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.

Report from Dublin Juvenile Championships - 4x100m Relays U9, U10 and U11 - Morton Stadium Santry - Saturday 31st May 2014

MSB's youngest Juvenile athletes turned out in great numbers for a terrific day of relay championships over the Bank Holiday weekend in the scorching sunshine. Our Under 9 Girls (Aoife Sheridan, Aisling O'Grady, Aoibhinn McGuinness and Molly Olyphant) came third in their heat and overall finished in 4th place in the final, just outside the medals. Their sprinting was superb and their baton exchanges were extremely smooth - well done girls.


In the U10 Girls we had two teams, both of which competed very well but unfortunately neither qualified for the final. The teams comprised Alison Callinan, Aoife Keane, Zoe Coquart and Rachel Glynn on one team and Ruth Linnane, Ella Nagle, Gara Williams and Tara Shields on the other.


In the U10 Boys we also had two teams (Team 1: Oisin Tebite, Adam Brennan, Ben O'Neill and Louie Woodger; Team 2: David Onwumereh, Oisin O'Shaughnessy, Adam Nagle and Donal Fitzmaurice). Team 1 brought home the gold medals after running lighting fast with the slickest baton exchanges possible in what was a very competitive age group. Well done to both teams as the second team only narrowly missed out on qualifying for the final. 

Our U11 Girls team comprising Sadhbh Mohan, Vivianna McCann, Olivia Spring and Aoife Brown (running up from U10) ran superbly to finish second in their heat and qualify for the final where they secured a very creditable 5th place.  


Our U11 Boys team ran superbly to win their heat (Neil Hogan, Killian Hegarty, James Bolton and Nkemjika Onwumereh) but narrowly missed out on the medals in their final, finishing 4th, barely behind the third place team.


So overall some superb team running from our young juveniles - well done to all.
