National Indoor Relays
Kilkenny squads had some joy at the
National Indoor Relays in Athlone last
weekend, with silver medals for St Josephs U/14 boys and KCH U/19
Girls, while there were
bronze medals for the St Josephs U/18 Girls team. The St Senan’s U/15 team of Lorna Monaghan, Molly O’Shea,
Amy Redmond and Katie Murphy were in action in the U/15 section but
didn’t make it out of the heats. Still it’s good experience for the
girls at national level.
Silver for Isabel
There was success for ace walker.
Isabel Morgan at the National Indoor championships last weekend, when
she scooped silver in the Girls U/16 1500m Walk. It was a close battle
all the way round and Isabel had a go with 400m to go but was pipped at the post for gold. However look out for
great things from Isabel over the summer months, when the competition
moves outdoors. In the U/15 boys High Jump, Thomas Sheridan finished a
very credible 6th, clearing 1.55m. This is Thomas's highest
All Ireland placing to date and bodes well for his outdoor season.
Although technically speaking not a St Senans
athlete, we are happy to congratulate Emma Caulfield daughter of Cait Quinlan, who finished 3rd in the girls U/14
1200m walk. This was Emma's first national competition and she well
deserved her bronze medal. A very tough competitor, like they say the
apple doesn’t fall far from the tree!!
Leinster Gold for Thomas Sheridan
There were some fine performances by St
Senans athletes at the Leinster
Juvenile Indoor T&F in Athlone last
weekend, including a superb gold by Thomas Sheridan with a clearance of
1.60m. It was a nice way for the ace high jumper to celebrate his
birthday. At U/14 Lee Treacy was 5th
in both the high and the long jump, while Molly O’Shea was 5th
in u/15 high jump with a new PB of 1.45m and also jumped well in the
long jump.. Lorna Monaghan was 6th in U/15 60m.Tara Ramasawmy
was 7th in the U/13 800M with a fine effort, while Josh
Fenton in the 600m at U/12 and Cian Kavanagh U/13 600m also turned in fine efforts.
Well done to all. George O’Shea was 7th in the U/12 high
jump, while Fiachra Knox was unlucky to miss
on making the 60m final after a fine run.
The All Ireland Schools cross country
took place in Cork IT last weekend with Siofra
Cleirigh Butler the star attracting taking
her 6th straight win. In the Minor Boys race Aaron Donnelly
representing the Abbey
College placed 17th
overall with a great run.
Double Bronze for Relays Squads in Dundalk
At the All Ireland Interclub and county
relays in Dundalk IT, the Kilkenny
U/12 Girls and U/14 Boys teams took bronze. The girls team was Ellen
Ryan and Orla O’Keefe of Thomstown,
and Chloe Mullally of St Josephs along with
Eva O’Dwyer of Gowran.
The Boys team consisted of Aaron Donnelly and Eoin
Maher of St Senans, Richie Murphy St Josephs
and Eoin Walsh of Thomastown.
There was a strong showing by the Boys U/12 team of Fiachra
Knox St Senans, Cathal
Beirne and Evan O’Toole of St Josephs, Jordan
Knight Thomastown and Brogan McAviney Gowran, with the
team just outside the medals in 5th place. The Girls U/14
team of Lorna Monaghan, Mollie O’Shea St Senans,
Sinead O’Keefe Thomastown and Linda Lawlor of St Josephs also turned in a fine run
placing 7th overall against strong opposition. Well done to
all who travelled.

Awards Night a Super Success
The club held it’s annual Awards Night on Friday last with a
packed hall in attendance to pay tribute to all the young athletes who
made 2013 such a success for St Senans AC.
The night got off to a hilarious start, as Perri
Williams hosted a pictorial review of the year with suitable captions. No
one was safe from the good natured slagging
and it was accompanied by a musical backdrop setting the scene for the
final rendition of we are the champions, which of course we are!
Allen the Key
The first award
of the night went to the U/10 recipient, the fast flying Saoirse Allen, with David Williams a well-earned
winner of the boy’s award. In the U/11-U/14 age group it was Aoife Allen who was the winner, while the U/15
winner was ace thrower Sinead McEvoy. In the
U/16-U/19 age group Rachel Butler was a worthy winner after a great
season. The overall winners were for the girls, race walker Isabel
Morgan, with Fosbury Flop expert Thomas
Sheridan winning the boy’s section. Last but not least the award for
most dedicated athlete went to the hard working Cian
Kavanagh. A great example to all. Well done
to all our winners and to all who competed during the year. Thanks also
to our parents and coaches and to all who helped on the night.

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
