Other Athletes who gave 100% on the Day but finished out of medals were Kerrie O’Donohoe, Sophie Lynch, Jake Mahoney, James Devitt, and one brave little Girl from U/8- U/10 Group, but where OH where, has all her team mates gone who train every week, the same can be said for some of the older age groups, and coaches will have to question themselves why the put in so much time coaching large numbers of children, who are not competing in the County Championships or the League. We hope said Athletes will accustom themselves with the RULES OF THE CLUB which can be viewed on our w/site www.newbridgeac.com and click on useful forms. We would love to see them compete in the next round of the League on the 9th of May or Part (2) of the County Championships on the 17th of May.
