April 10 – South Munster Schools T&F 2014

The 2014 South Munster Schools track and field championships take place at Cork IT track on Friday 9th May and Monday 12th May. Please find attached information regarding the event, entry forms (in one Excel file for all age groups in separate worksheets) and a timetable for both days (in one Excel file for both days in separate worksheets).

You might take particular note of the following:

1.  Entries may be posted as usual with entry fees or emailed using the forms provided and payment can be make at registration on the 9th May (Day 1)
2.  Please adhere to the closing date of Tuesday May 6th for entries.
3.  Entry fees are a once off payment. There are no more entry fees for Munster or Irish qualifers.
4.  Only schools affiliated for the current school year may enter competitors. Entries are only accepted from the relevant school authorized person.
5.  The change in weights for Junior/Intermediate girls shot, javelin and hammer.
6.  The inclusion of a 1500m steeplechase for Senior Girls.
7.  The earlier than usual start times of 11am on the 9th May and 10:30 on the 12th May

Finally it is hoped to produce a helpers list shortly after the Easter holidays where schools can be more proactive in the organization of the event by appointing 2 or more competent Transition Year students to assist in judging, recording, measuring, administration or even adjusting hurdles. In particular schools who are regular attenders at this event normally with a good number of competitors would be expected to help out in this way.

Once entries start to come in I'll be in contact with schools looking for a list of helpers' names and then assign these to specific duties by agreement.

Regards,

Liam O'Brien
(Secretary South Munster Schools Athletic Association)

March 5 – Doneraile Park 5KM Series

The Doneraile Park Spring 5km Series will begin again this Saturday morning 8th March in the re-opened grounds of the storm hit park. Start time is at 11am so participants are encouraged to get there early. Entries for the event cost just 5 euro and will take place at the Community centre at the top of the town in Doneraile from 10am to 10:50am. Parking will be available inside the gate of the Park near the start.

These events are mainly aimed at encouraging beginner runners, especially those involved in Couch to 5km, Fit4Youth and Fit4life programmes to take up the sport and allowing young distance runners the chance to participate over longer distances than normal for fitness. The OPW staff have worked hard to restore the grounds in time for our event so sincere thanks goes to them for ensuring our event can go ahead as planned. The same traditional course as usual will be used with the start line at the old gate across the road from the Secondary school. The finish will be in front of the main house in the Park to allow runners the chance to get refreshment at the Tea Rooms afterwards.

The series of events are run as a joint effort by North Cork AC and Mallow AC. Updates are available via the Doneraile Park 5km Series facebook event page. The remaining events in the series are set to take place on April 5th, May 2nd and the grande finale event, the Dan Byrne Memorial 5km on May 30th. These last two dates are pending permit approval so watch out for updates online on facebook or www.northcorkac.com . Quality Series T-Shirt for all those who complete all four races or there is an option for those who participate in 3 and volunteer in 1 to also earn a t-shirt. There will be no prizes in the first 3 events in order to put the emphasis on participation and to make the series affordable to organise for the clubs involved.

January 26 – South Munster Schools Cross Country

Congratulations to all prizewinners and qualifiers for the Munster Schools Championship on Thursday February back at Cork IT. It was great to see such large numbers taking part and it would surely be beneficial to all if teachers could encourage participants not particularly very involved in other sports to join their local athletic club.

The results are not 100% accurate due mainly to incorrect numbers being assigned to the wrong athlete and of course late entries on the day do not help the administrative process either.

A very big thank you to the large number of volunteer officials who turn up to assisted in parking duties, course construction (and destruction afterwards!),  administration tent entries and results, start officials, finish marshals and recorders and course stewards.
Finally on everybody's behalf the Munster Agricultural Society deserve our debt of gratitude allowing the use of their lands.

January 25 – County AGM

Following the county AGM today there are a number of positions on the board, nominations for these positions are invited, to be sent to the secretary prior to the next county board meeting.  See County Board Officers for available positions

 

January 21 – Celtic Cross Country Report & AAI Combined Events

Celtic Cross Country International

A great day for Cork Juvenile Athletes at the Celtic Cross Country International in Antrim on Saturday 4th January 2014 where Fearghal Curtin of Youghal AC representing Ireland gained some measure of compensation for his unlucky run in Santry  with a well-deserved win in the boys u17 race and in doing so led the Irish lads to team gold. Fellow Cork Athlete Cathal Mc Carthy Doheny AC ran a great race to finish eight in the u17 race and was a member of the Irish winning team. Ruairi Casey Togher AC was a member of the boy’s u17 Irish Development squad and ran a race full of promise to finish tenth and was first of his team home.

Fiona Everard Bandon AC was a member of the girl’s u17 development squad which finished third team.

It’s a tremendous honour to represent your Country and well done to all who competed.

January 19 – Schools Cross Country Venue Change

The venue for next Friday’s South Munster schools’ cross country championships has had to be changed to the Munster Agricultural Society (MAS) grounds at Curraheen.

The most suitable way to access this venue particularly for buses is to use the N42 (main road from Cork to Killarney the old N25) and leave at Exit 2 signed for Curraheen. Take the road for Curraheen at the next roundabout and after about 1km the course is on the right-hand side of the road.

All vehicles must park in the MAS fields. There is adequate hard standing for cars and busses. A one-way system will apply. Follow stewards directions.

Only limited toilet facilities no spiked shoes in the toilets allowed. There will be no changing or showering facilities available on site. It should be possible to use the facilities at Cork IT if desired.  Participants are advised to come dressed for competition with tracksuit etc. and have a dry set of gear for afterwards. Buses and cars will be parked very adjacent to the course.

A map of the course will be provided later this week to those schools entered.

The timetable and distances remain as outlined on the original information. The first 6 individuals will receive their medals immediately on finishing their race. Team medals can be collected at the administration tent as soon as results are posted up.

Competition information and entry forms are attached for your information if you have not received them by post. Entries and fees should be posted to Liam O'Brien, Gortacrue, Midleton, Co Cork by Tuesday January 21st.. All other enquires to Sean Nyhan 087 9598168.
