Tipperary Indoor Track & Field Championships

The Tipperary Co. Indoor Track & Field Championships were held in Nenagh on Sunday last, those were the first championships to be run on the newly re-laid surface on both the inner and outer track, it is now without doubt one of the faster indoor circuits in the country. Great credit must go to Nenagh Olympic committee for undertaking such a major project. We had seven athletes takin part in both track and throws events.Naomi Morrissey C/45 got her '24 season off to a flying start, winning both the Shot 7.19m and WFD 5.08m, Naomi heads to Athlone for National Masters next weekend. Aoife Hall kicked off her senior debut with gold in the 2k walk 29.23.

Ber Spillane continued where she left off last season getting a new PB in the 60m C/40 in 8.74s, ideal preparation for National Masters Championships in Athlone on Saturday next. Niamh Cleere running in her first senior championships still only fifteen years old came away with a silver medal in 9.14s. Dearbhla Gleeson also made her debut at senior level in the 400m collecting a silver medal 71.12s. Emma Delaney ran 2.38.8s in the 800m, thrown in against all other categories on her senior debut Emma finished second overall and took gold in the senior. Emma's twin sister Kate ran a fine race on her senior debut also picking up gold in a time of 5m.37.s Ber Spillane and Niamh Cleere rounded off the track session in the 200m, Ber gold in C/40 29.23s first time going under 30s in Nenagh and Niamh 30.55s taking silver an event won by Sophie Walker Newport AC in 26.34s.Moyne and Newport contested the 4x200m relay with Moyne coming out on top in this event also.

National Masters Championships

The National masters will take place in Athlone on Saturday next 13th. January, Naomi Morrissey and Ber Spillane are no strangers to this level of competition both being gold medal winners in recent years, Ber will compete in 60m, 200m and 400m, a rather busy schedule. Naomi goes in the shot and WFD. (weight for Distance).

National League Round 2

Katie Bergin will get her track and field season underway at Round 2 of the National Indoor League in The NIA Abbotstown on Sunday next, competing in 60m and 200m,hopefully this will be ideal preparation for national U/23s a week later in Athlone, 2023 will be a hard act to follow, the form shown in early season training auger well for 2024.
