Juvenile ‘B’s a Buzzin’ in Kilmacow

St Senan’s AC hosted the Kilkenny County Cross Country Championships: Novice and Juvenile B Even Ages championships in Kilmacow last Sunday and on a glorious day for athletics there were some cracking displays. First up was the girls U/8 racer and Molly Cummins of castlecomer took gold. Evelyn Williams had a fine run in 9th place. In the boy’s U/8 race Aneil Ramasawmy put in a great finishing burst to take 7th place with Harry Morrissey just two places further back, closely followed by Gareth Foot. In the girl’s U/10 race it was a 1,2, 3 for St Joseph’s AC led by an impressive Aine Purcell. Caoimhe Phelan led the St Senans charge in 6th place, with Caoimhe Kavanagh in 7th. Strong running too by Sophie Williams, Sophie Monaghan and Keelan Duggan saw the team take bronze medals behind St Josephs. In the boy’s U/10 Eoin Aylward put in a strong run to place 7th, with Shane Morrissey 11th, Aiden Lawlor 12th and Eoin Murray 13th. Jack Butler, Patrick Walsh, Jamie Walsh and Michael Phelan completed the team who were unlucky to miss out in 4th place.

Billy Blazes to Gold

In the girl’s U/12 race Aine Ryan of St Josephs took gold with team mate Aine McDonals in silver helping the team to gols. Rose Sheridan was first Senans athlete home, closely followed by Kate Aylward and Eva Blanche. The boy’s U/12 race saw a fine gutsy run by Mark Finn in 4th place with fast finishing Luke Ramasawmy having a great run in 6th place.  Chloe Mullally of St Josephs took gold in the girls U/14 race with Shauna Finn having a fine run in 5th place. In the boy’s U/14 race Killian Griffin of St Jospehs AC took gold with Brian O’Mear taking a fine bronze for St Senans. The last race of the day for juveniles was the U/16 boys and Billy Delahunty gave a masterclass in front running, storiming away on the second lap for a comprehensive win. Superb back up by Eoin Maher in silver and Thomas Sheridan in bronze saw the team take gold.

Kennedy and Power take Novice Titles

Elean Kennedy of Gowran AC proved too strong for the oppistion taking the Novice title in fine style from Rita McGarvey and Lisa Collins both of KCH. KCH were clean team winners from St Josehs AC and newly reformed Tullaroan AC. In the men’s  6000m Novice race there was early break by Sean Power Thomastown , Tom O’Keefe KCH and Oliver Mullally St Senans and this trio opened a big gap by the end of lap one. This was howe it stayed until the final lap when Power and O’Keefe went clear, however it was the Thomastown athlete who proved stronger on the final lap winning by 50m from O’Keefe, with Oliver holding on well for bronze. Great back up by James Power, Danny Shanahan and Tommy Shefflin saw Thomastown take the coveted team prize. KCH took silver with St Josephs AC taking bronze.

Iron Men & Women

Well done to those iron marathon men Tom Roche and Noel Walsh who notched up another Dublin Marathon on their impressive list of finishes. Coming home just a minure apart in a shae over four and a half hours between them they have 60 Dublins completed. Tom has long been a fund raiser for Crumlin Children’s Hospital and to date has raised an incredible €88,000 for this charity. Due to retire from his role as a school bus driver with Bus Eireann in January next year, he will be a full time athlete so there will be no stopping him!! Also punding the Dublin roads was ace race Adele Walsh and despite stomach cramps still posted a very fine 3.24 clocking. Expect great things from her in coming months! Another marathoner from the club on the day was Adrian Allen who finished in a shade over five hours. Well done to all.

Bionic Maggie

Ran in to my old sparring partner the irrepressible and irreplacable Maggie Lacey last week and fair to see she has never looked better. Not surprising I suppose when you consider most of her is brand new or at least refurbished. Word has it, she has a track worn up to Philly McBrides, getting spare parts! According to Ned Williams the new hips are made out of the ball joints of a 1958 Commer van, while the knees were originally in the suspension of an Austin A40.  Begor says he, if she gets any more bits fitted they’ll have to NCT her. I saw Bill pulled in by side of the road last week and I stopped and says ‘Are you in trouble ?’, I am he says, have you a pair jump leads? I have says I, why won’t the car start? It’s not for the car says he, it’s for Maggie!!!

 

 

County B even championships this Sunday 11am Kimacow. Any athlete from U10 up that did not come in the first 3 , and was not a member of a winning team (team that came first ) can run. All U8's can run regardless of whether they got medals or not. County training on at 11.30 in Kilamcow. Hope to see everyone there

Super Running in Avondale

The St Senans AC squad took to the Wicklow hills last Sunday in the first stage of the Leinster cross country championships and turned in a superb performance. On a perfect day for running though over a tough course the young guns showed the benefits of all the recent hard training with superb individual and team performances. Libby Murphy set the tone for the day with a stunning bronze medal in the U/10 race just a few strides off the winner. Saoirse Allen was unlucky to finish just out of the medals in the U/12 race placing 5th. Still a great run by one of the club’s most consistent athletes. Good runs too by Clodagh Monaghan and Aoife Redmond. The race saw a brilliant win for Aine Kirwan of Thomastown with her team mate Fiona Dillon taking bronze. A great performance in the U/14 race saw the club scoop slver medals for the team of Aoife Allen (10th), Tara Ramasawmy (13th), Nell Murphy (15th), Aine Phelan and Missy Rochford.  In the U/16 race Helen Hoyne of St Josephs AC had a fine run in 7th place. The U/18 girls took bronze led home by the strong running Michelle McDonald (13th), with Dearbhala Kearns (22nd), Kate Dillon-Dunphy (30th) and Sarah Butler (31st) all working hard for the team.

By Gosh, It’s bronze for Josh!

David Williams had a blistering run at U/10 finished 7th in a big field, to secure his All Ireland place. In the U/12 race Josh Fenton went with the fast early place and stormed round the course for a superb individual bronze. The team that included James Foot, Robert Finn. Tadgh Connolly, Mark Finn, Luke Ramasawmy, Joe Roche and Daniel Griffin were unlucky to miss out on a medal in 4th place. A great run too by Cathal beirne of St Jospehs AC taking 5th place. The U/16 squad set off at a cracking pace with Aaron Donnelly (19th) leading the charge in the leading group during the early laps. Strong running by Billy Delahunty, Thomas Sheridan, Eoin Maher and Aaron Redmond saw the team take bronze. The U/18 race saw a great run by Peter Lynch of KCH to take silver in a sprint finish.

Fine runs by Aine and Conor

The Novice Ladie’s race saw a great run by Aoife O’Connor of Thomastown in 5th place with Aine Kinsella having a great run in 13th place. In the Novice Men’s race Conor Rochford was back to his best, setting off at a fast pace and leading up the first steep hill after 1000m. He continued to run strongly taking the important 12th place overall and can look forward to the All Ireland with confidence. The Master’s Ladies race saw a fine win for Jackie Carty of Kilmore AC, while in the Men’s race the evergreen Tony Reilly of Ballyroan took silver.

 

Deepest Sympathy

It is with great sadness that we note the recent death of Paudie Casey of Lisduggan and formerly Ballygunnar. Paudie had strong connections with St Senan’s AC, his daughter Carmel being the wife of clubman Bill Lacey. Paudie along with his wife Joanie, was a regular feature at many cross country races as they keenly supported their grandchildren when they competed. A star hurler with both Ballygunnar and Waterford, he had the distinction of being a member of the last winning Waterford team of 1959. Soft spoken and always good humoured, he was one of those people it was always a pleasure to run into. He took ill some months ago but still retained his good humour and friendly disposition. He will be sadly missed by us all and on behalf of St Senan’s AC, we offer our deepest sympathy to Joanie, his extended family and wide circle of friends.

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!!

The St Senan’s AC juvenile squad turned in a brilliant performance to take the shield as best overall juvenile club in Kilkenny for the third time in a row and the fourth in five years. With just a small lead from the first stage, it was all to play for in Castlecomer and aided by some great individual runs, including four gold medals, the teams all worked hard to secure the victory. The gold medals came from David Williams in the U/9, Aoife Allen U/13, Rachel Butler U/19 and Hugh Morgan U/19. Well done also to the winning teams Boys U/11, Girls U/15, Girls /17 and Boys U/19. Congratulations to all our young athletes and the coaching staff who prepared them so well. County champions, has a nice ring to it!
