Posted on October 1, 2019 at 3:40 PM

This is an indoor event for under 9 to under 12 age groups featuring a mix of running, jumping and throwing events, finishing with team relays and is intended as a fun, low pressure introduction to competition for new athletes as well as those who have been to many events before.

Cavan Children's Games 6 May 2019

Posted on May 9, 2019 at 7:00 PM

The 2019 Cavan Children's Games took place at the PeaceLink athletics track in Clones on a mild bank holiday Monday 6th May. The day featured a mix of sprints, distance running, jumps, throws and team relays for the under 9 to 13 age groups, with the club ably represented by an enthusiastic squad.


In the Under 9 events, Emer Briody took third lace in the 300m. Twins Dylan and Oisin Farrelly had a great battle with each other in the boys 300m race, with the pair crossing the line too close to separate, so the judges awarded them joint first place. Dylan also took third place in the 60m sprint. In the U9 relay, the two boys were part of the gold medal winning team.


In the Under 10s, Shonnagh Brennan took the silver medal in the turbojavelin event, with teammate Ciara O'Reilly taking the bronze. Ciara and Bethan Stokes both made it to the final of their sprint event, but just missed out in a very tight finish that saw the top five athletes cross the line almost at once. But they didn't miss out in the relay, where Bethan, Ciara, Shonnagh and Emer had a fantastic race that saw them win the gold medal.


In the Under 11 category, Gráinne Gilroy picked up a silver medal in the sprint before going on to win the turbojavelin event. Liam Briody had a strong run in the boys events, winning the sprint and taking bronze in the 600m race. The girls relay team of Gráinne, Shonnagh, Bethan and Ciara battled hard to take third place.


And in the Under 12s, Zak Farrell was third in the shot putt, quite close to the silver medalist. The U12 relay team of Keelan Gilroy, Zak Farrell, Liam Briody and Gráinne Gilory took fourth place.


Well done to all who took part, we hope you had a great time. Photos from the day can be found on our Flickr gallery (https://www.flickr.com/photos/162692233@N06/albums/72157704972086622" target="_blank">click here).
