Gneeveguilla Open Sports 2015

Outdoor Track & Field season got off to a good start with Gneeveguilla Open Sports taking place on Sunday, 26 April 2015 at An Riocht track in Castleisland.
These types of events are open to juveniles from athletic clubs and non members.
There was also a large number of athletes from Co. Cork and Co. Limerick.
Whole event ran smoothly in glorious sunshine with a large crowd of spectators cheering on the athletes.

St.Brendan's AC had a small group of athletes, ranging from U6 to U16.
What we missed in numbers, we excelled in quality with some equally impressive performances in both track events and field events - a good warm up for the County Championships which will take place on 9/10 May.
Top 3 placed athletes from our club:
U8  Laura Falvey - 1st in 50m sprint, 1st in 100m distance, 1st in turbo javelin
U10 Lilly Nowak - 1st in turbo javelin, 1st in U11 mixed clubs relay 
U13 Rebecca Falvey - 3rd in 80m sprint,
U16 Aaron Malik - 2nd in long jump
U16 Fergal O'Brien - 3rd in 100m sprint, 3rd in long jump

Well done to all of our young athletes, especially to those competing for the first time and those competing in older age categories. 
We still have some time before Kerry county championships to try to improve before the big day.
