ATHLETIC CLUB

Adamstown Boys scoop silver Leinster medals and make it to the All Ireland Final. Last weekend was a very exciting weekend for Adamstown Athletic Club, 4 athletes U9 Boys Ben & Robert Wall, U11 Boys Craig Wall and Luke Byrne competed in the Leinster Pairs in Navan. U9 Boys 300m - Robert & Ben, U11 Boys 600m - Craig & Luke had to compete against the clock over the distance, their times were combined and both teams came away with silver medals.

This is quiet an achievement for these young talented athletes. The lads now head to Cork on 23rd June to compete in the All Ireland and get their first taste of competing on the track where many international athletes will take to the stage for the Cork City Sports later in the month for their Pre-Olympic competition. Best of Luck Boys.

Craig Wall was also representing Wexford beside club mate Christopher Mahon on the county relay team, these boys helped Wexford to win bronze medals in the U11 Leinster Inter County Relay. Also taking part on the day were our U12 Girls Tara Doyle, Sonia Mooney, Mairead Creane and Eadaoin Stafford. Well done everyone.
