The North West Indoor Games organised by Donegal, Monaghan and Cavan County Boards took place at at Athlone Indoor Arena on Saturday December 30. It was the third year of this successful competition covering a range of track and field events from underage to senior and masters. Well done to our sprinter Declan Owens from Claremorris who took part in two senior events. He finished second in the 200 metres and also ran in the 60m in a season’s best time of 7.92. He’s very happy with this form as it sets him up well for the Munster indoor championships in two weeks.
Also in action at the weekend were a group who met up at Hollymount last Friday morning (December 29) for an inaugural club cross country training session. They used a 800 metre lap with a few nice hills – ideal for XC training. Contact is Colette Tuohy 086 323 1044.
