Best of Luck to the Team going to EYOC 2018
I would like to take this opportunity to wish the Irish Team heading to EYOC 2018 next week the VERY best of luck.
They have trained hard, and are ready and able for the challenge ahead.
I would also like to sincerely thank for all their hard work- to come and to date;
Alan Elwood & Edith Bridcut, for taking on the challenge of managing the trip.
Without Alan and Edith, we would not be able to send our athletes, and this would be a pity.
I would also like to thank and acknowledge those who have helped with fund raising these past few moths, to enable this, and other Junior Trips to go ahead.
WATO- who donated the takings from the Urban Sprint in Dungarvan to the Junior Squad
A donation was also received, and we are very grateful.
All those at the Irish Champs who bought cakes, baked cakes, minded the stall, and generally got the fund raising up and active- especially Edith, Debbie and Sally!
And finally- for now- Ruairi Long et famille who organised the brilliantly entertaining Quiz at the Irish Champs also.
These trips cost alot of money, and the insurance/ kit/ transport etc is all very expensive, so THANK YOU to all who help with this, although I am the Junior Rep, I cannot do my job without everyones help.
