GALLERY: Clare athletes on the hunt for Community Games gold

Ennis College Further Education

Clare Community Games will have 92 children representing them in track, field and relay events at the Community Games National Athletic finals this Saturday in Carlow SETU Campus (formerly IT Carlow).

On Saturday over 60 of the participants in the National Finals had a Meet and Greet and coaching session in O’Sullivan Park.

It was arranged by Paula Byrne O’Connell, county chairperson. It was beautiful to see so many smiling children in glorious sunshine so eager to meet and make new friendships.

Thanks to Marie, Martin, Colm. Gabriel and the parents who helped to give tips and encouragement to the children on their particular event.
Best of luck to all in the finals on Saturday.
