Leinsters Loom Large

The St Senans AC will set their sights on the first stage of the Leinster championships next Sunday, when the Even Age groups take to the fields of Rathdrum on Sunday the 26th October. The squad have been in good form both in Open competition in Adamstown and Kilmacow as well as at the county championships, so hopes are high for some strong performances. The event will also see both the Novice and Masters races take place and Sean Caulfield will lead the team in the latter.

Adele in action in Dublin

Good luck to ace racer Adele Walsh as she takes on the 26 miles 385 yards of road in the Dublin Marathon next Monday. She has had a good lead up to the race, including a fine resulting Cork to Cobh and will be looking to be competitive in the Masters section. Hopefully the weather gods will smile on the event and Adele will have the wind in her back. Also running, in his case his first marathon is my musical pal Pob O’Brien. One of the country’s top box players, he will be hoping to hit all the right notes on the day. We wish him and Adele every success. Speaking of marathons, well done to my sporty niece Sofie, who recently completed the Chicago Marathon in aid of the Ronald McDonald Foundation. A pretty nifty rower too, she is a former national collegiate lightweight champion. Thank God someone in the family has talent!!

Banjaxed

Absolutely nothing to do with athletics but it is a quiet week in fairness! For banjo lovers everywhere a few banjo jokes. A guy waking through the Sahara comes across a banjo player buried up to his neck. God he said, only up to his neck, they must have run out of sand!! What’s the difference between a banjo player driving down the road and a bullfrog driving down the road. There’s a chance the bullfrog might have a gig! What’s the difference between a banjo and an onion, ‘no one cries when you cut up a banjo’!! A man walks into a bar and says to the lads at he counter, I’m collecting  a fiver we want to bury a banjo player and a guy says, ‘here’s a tenner, bury two of ‘em. And finally a definition of perfect pitch, when you can toss a banjo into a skip from 40 feet without touching the sides.

 

Great Start to County Championships

The St Senans AC squad got off to a flying start in this year’s Kilkenny County cross country championships, with an impressive display in Ballycurran Cross last Sunday. Lots of strong individual and team performances, a great reward for all the hard training over the last two month. The club are just two points behind KCH in the overall race for the title of best overall club.

Lets Hear it for the Girls!
Libby Murphy got the U/10 girls team off to a cracking start taking 4th place in a big field of runners. Good runs too by Juliette Evans, Sophie Williams, Sophie Monaghan, Caoimhe Kavanagh and Grace Ramsawmy. In the U/12 race there was top class opposition with five girls from the top 15 from last year's all Ireland competing. Saoirse Allen ran exceptionally well to take bronze despite running out of her age. She was well supported by a team that are reaping the benefits of all the hard training, with Aoife Redmond, Clodagh Monaghan, Rose Sheridan, Kate Aylward and Aoife Blanche all having good runs. The U/14 girls are a dedicated bunch and with injury depleting the team Shauna Finn stepped in and ran a gutsy race to help the team take silver. Tara Ramasamwy who is still U/13 stormed through to take the individual silver with Aoife Allen finishing strongly to take bronze and Nell Murphy impressive in 5th. The U/16 girls put in a strong team effort and packed well to take silver.  Lorna Monahan is proof positive of the benefits of cross country running even for sprinters, being a finalist in this year's all Ireland 200m. Ann-marie Moloney is getting back to her best form taking 5th, with Lorna 8th, Molly O’Shea 10th and Caoimhe Kearns 11th. Finally the girls U/18 team struck gold to round off a great day, a fair reward for lots of hard training of late. First home was |Dearbhala Kearns in 4th with Kate Dillon-Dunphy in 6th, Ailish Conneely 7th and Sara Butler 8th.

Boys Oh Boys!

In the Boys U/8 race Issac Carew had a great run to take bronze. Good runs too by Anil Ramasamwy 11th, 12 Garret Foot 12th and 15 Harry Morrissey 15th. Despite playing some tough matches in a hurling blitz the previous day the U/10 boys all ran their hearts out. The A team took bronzed led by a silver medal winning run by David Williams with the B team placing 5th overall. Some strong running all round from Callum Regan, Shane Morrissey, Eoin Aylward, Gearoid Long, Keelan Roche,  Patrick Walsh, Jamie Walsh, Tom Reddy and Jack Butler. In the Boys U/12 race excellent team work saw them scoop gold led by individual silver medallist Josh Fenton, with James foot 6th, Robert Finn 13th and the fast improving Tadgh Connelly complete with new spikes in 14th. Fine performances too by Joe Roche, Luke Ramasamwy, Paddy Regan and Daniel Griffin saw the the ‘B’ team well placed in 8th. Cian Kavanagh led the boys U/14 team with impressive runs by first timers Fergal Suffin and Cian Vereker. A fine run from Aaron Donnell led the U/16 boys home to silver. As the season progresses under the watchful eye of ace coach and mentor Bill Lacey. Expect  this team will get fitter and faster as the season progresses. Billy Delahunty continues to improve and was impressive in 7th place with good runs too by Eoin Maher in 8th, Aaron Redmond 11th and Thomas Sheridan 12th

Master Sean

 In the Masters O/45 race, the Gallopin’ Grocer Sean Caulfield took silver to add to his massive collection of medals in all categories from junior infants to wrinkly auld fellas! Arguably the most consistent runner in the EEC and parts of Glenmore, he has never been out of the top ten in any competition since 1882!! Blessed with speed, stamina, brains and beauty he is a giant among mortals and the club’s leading performer!!
