Track-Attack 245

A record participation of 245 people ran, jogged and walked the second round of our Track-Attack All Ireland Championship which is been sponsored by Declan Maher Financial Services.
The night was perfect and the huge numbers reacted in a similar perfect manner as they ticked off the laps in impressive fashion with many shaving large chunks from their finishing times of the previous week.

It was the first round of the round robin section of our 32 County Series and we were treated to some excellent performances. In group 1, the Fermanagh team are the early pace setters and their cause was greatly helped by the performances of Austin Ryan, Therese Groome, Niamh Corcoran, Fiona Max and Biddy Stapleton.

David Skehan, Kathleen O’Meara, John Ryan, Colette Carey and Aoibhinn Keane all came up trumps for the Clare team in their group 2 encounter and they share the league table summit with the Dublin outfit who drew on the excellent performances of Jim Costigan, Michael Cahill, Karen Nash and Niamh Butler to secure their opening round victory.
Three teams got off to a winning start in group 3. Meath secured a victory thanks in the main to the performances of JJ Kinane, Declan Fitzpatrick, Caroline Kennedy, Emma Ryan and Geraldine O’Meara. The Roscommon team also hit the ground running thanks mainly to the improvement rates of Christine Rabbitte, Paddy Kennedy, Jack Ryan and Anna Meehan. Down also rose up to the head of the table with Lucy Rabbitte, Henry Groome, Siobhan Carr and Richie Tynan securing the necessary points.
There was also 3 victories in group 4 with Waterford, Derry and Wicklow all coming to the fore. Derry had excellent performances from Frances Maher, Helen Hurley, Ciara Maher, Ava Fanning and Niamh Carr while Wicklow scored well thanks to the performances of Mick Ryan, Olivia Murphy, Eamon Ryan, Maura O’Brien and Ciara Doolan. The cream of the crop for the Deise outfit were Donie Kennedy, Trish Ryan, Micheal O’Hagan, Paula Stapleton, Darragh Grogan and Claire Butler.
