Last weekend 7 of Cranford’s young talented athletes travelled to Tullamore to compete in the national children games, qualifying out of Ulster, competing against the best of Irish talent!

First up was the under 9 boys, Ryan McMenamin and Caolan McFadden, competing in their first ever competition at this level. Both boys competed well in the long jump, finishing in a very respectable 8th place. This duo also took to the track for the 300m race. Ryan’s heat was first up and he was unfortunate to get boxed in at the start but came back well with a strong finish on the home straight. Next was Caolans heat, where he took control from the start of the race, leading the pack, finishing a very strong 3rd place overall. One to watch for the future!

Our only two young female athletes of the day Orla Neely and Caoimhe Browne represented Cranford AC in the u11 Turbo Javelin. This proved to be a highly competitive event with both girls doing themselves and their club proud!

Taking to the board next was Max Roarty and Conor Neely in the u11 long jump with Conor competing in his first All Ireland, showing a promising performance. Max stepped up next jumping well in a tough field with the boys finishing 10th overall.

The last race of the day brought rewards when Max Roarty and Cian McMenamin confidently took to the track for the U11 600m. Max competed in the first heat putting pressure on from the start finishing very strongly smashing his Pb in 1.52. The next heat saw Cian also smash his Pb in 1.53, coming from the back of the pack to storm home strongly. These impressive performances merited these two focused young athletes with Bronze All Ireland medals!
Well done to all. A huge thanks to the coaches Eamon Giles, Joe Boyce and Rose Gavaghan who travelled on the day and to Ernie McElhinney and Bridie Trearty for their continued support.
We wish the best of luck to Aoife Giles, Oisin Kelly, Liam Donnelly,Dylan Dorrian, Eoghan Moore and Killian Browne competing in Tullamore this weekend.
