St. Abban's Athletic Club

Philip & Teresa Reign in Clogh

The Clogh 5K road run and walk saw a healthy gathering to support the fundraiser for the local National school play area development. St. Abbans A.C. and local athlete Philip Roche was always in the leading group and when it came down to the final 500 metres it was the desire to succeed on home ground that prevailed as he opened up a clear lead from there to the finish, to clock a winning time of 17:34. The ladies event saw Teresa Agar register another win in a fine time of 18:34. Other members of the club to support the event included:- James Nolan, Dinny Whelan, Mark Wogan, Breda Mulcahy, Kevin Wilson, Oisin Ryan and Niall Egan.

Colette back on Top

Good Friday saw the running of the Carlow Hurling Club 5K in perfect conditions. James Griffin, Niall English and Bernard Graham had fine run's while Colette English continued to show she is back in excellent form to take the ladies title with Deirdre Brennan also showing a marked improvement in performance.

In the St. Michael's Forest Run in Emo Teresa Agar was 3rd lady across the line while Mairead Moore won the O.40 section. Other club members to support the event included:- Dermot Ayres, Matt Moore, Breda Roche, Caitriona McDonald and Dinny Whelan. Prize winners among those who travelled to Kilmacow, Co. Klikenny for the Annual St. Senan's Open Sports included:- Sean & Danielle O'Driscoll, Ruby Millet, Maeve Maher and Kevin Wilson.
