€9M Boost with Go-Ahead for High-Performance Indoor Facility at CIT

Indoor High-Performance Athletics Facility at CIT has been Approved


proposed cit indoor athletics july 2019

 

 

This morning, Friday January 10th, Tánaiste, Simon Coveney T.D., announced approval of €9M funding for the facility. The total cost of the project is €22.9M, with Stream 2 of Large Scale Sport Infrastructure Fund providing the €9.225M grant, and the balance coming from the stakeholders in CIT; CIT, Cork City Council and Cork County Council

 


"Athletics Ireland & Cork Institute of Technology Community Sport Project Cork City: Construction & operation of a high performance athletics indoor training facility. Resurfacing of the existing outdoor track. €9,225,000"

Athletics Ireland Release

 

Department of Transport, Tourism and Sport Release

 

Full Allocation Listing (PDF File)

 
(From Last July)

An application has been made for Funding is being sought under the Department of Transport, Sport and Tourism’s Large Scale Infrastructure Fund (LLSIF). The complete development includes a two-storey multi-purpose sports arena, located south of the existing outdoor Athletics Track and will comprise eight courts, fitness studios, a health and fitness facility, along with dressing rooms.

The Athletics Ireland extension will add an indoor running track, pole vault and jump facilities to the new complex.

 

hamish adams

Hamish Adams, CEO, Athletics Ireland

 

When the inital application was announced, last July, Hamish Adams, CEO of Athletics Ireland said that the facility would be a “massive boost” for athletics, and sport in general, in Cork.

“We’ve got an application in for €12.3m funding for a project we want to develop in conjunction with CIT”

“CIT is proceeding with a new gym, in the next few months, and we want to extend that to include a new sports hall, pole vault area, long jump and high jump areas, and a running track. It’s a huge development and it would be a massive boost for sport in Cork, not only athletics but all sport within the college and the local community”

Timing

The works are likey to commence very soon, with completion by the autumn, though the timeline has yet to be agreed. The long awaited lighting upgrade at the track is likely to go ahead in parallel with this, though the top end of the track, where the venue is most in need - 1 or more lights are out of action there - is probably not going to be done until later in the year, as the lighting towers there will probably be removed to facilitate construction of the new Indoor Facility

 

Update 16:30, Friday January 10th 2019

The grant includes the long awaited Track Re-Surfacing.  The track was last resurfaced twenty years ago, in 2001. It was planned to close for six (6) weeks then, however persistent adverse weather led to the track being closed for eleven (11) months. Lets hope things go better this time round!

cit track and standCIT Track and Spectator Stand

One of the factors leading to surface water remaining on the track was the lack of/insufficient drainage around the track. In particular, water run-off from the spectator embankments, led to silting up of the track crumb, which is designed to be self-draining, and consequential retention of water on the track.  In turn, the retained moisture frequently iced/frosted up during cold weather. Thankfully, the planned resurfacing includes improved drainage on both sides, infield and spectator sides, of the track.


Athletics Ireland Release

Athletics Ireland and Cork Institute of Technology awarded €9.22 million to support the development of a new indoor community sports facility.

Athletics Ireland and Cork Institute of Technology are delighted to receive the news today that their joint application to the Large Scale Sports Infrastructural Fund has been successfully awarded €9.22 million to support the development of a new indoor community and high performance sports facility at CIT.

This large indoor athletics facility which will complement the development of the new CIT Arena with the addition of indoor sprints, pole vault and jumps and associated facilities. The complete development includes a two-storey multi-purpose sports arena, located south of the existing outdoor Athletics Track and will comprise eight courts, fitness studios, a health and fitness facility, along with dressing rooms, seminar and social facilities.

Hamish Adams the Athletics Ireland CEO describes the announcement as strategically a huge step forward in the development of not only athletics in Cork but for sport in the region. “This investment by government will deliver huge benefits for the sporting community in the Southern region. The exciting plans we have for this facility in conjunction with CIT will create opportunities for all.”

Dr Barry O’Connor, President of CIT, adds “We are delighted to announce this development which will be a massive boost for not only athletics, but all sport in Cork, the surrounding community, and across Munster generally. We look forward to working with Athletics Ireland in ensuring this facility will help to inspire future generations of athletes for many years to come. This investment combined with the commitment of €12million of our own resources to the new CIT Arena will result in over €22 million state of the art sports resource for Cork Institute of Technology, which, as always, will be shared with the sports community across Munster. The recent opening of the Kerry Sports Academy by our MTU partners IT Tralee will complement developments here in Bishopstown and will secure the Munster Technological University as a unique resource for ensuring sport and wellness are to the fore in our new technological university. We gratefully acknowledge the support of the many athletics clubs and sporting organisations in the development of this exciting proposal and look forward to ever increased participation and national and international successes of our sporting talent.”




All in all, a good day for Athletics in Cork!

Death of Mary Meagher - Blarney-Inniscarra AC and both Cork and Munster Boards

Mary Meagher R.I.P. - Condolences

January 18th 2019

 

The Officers and Officials of Cork Athletics County Board extend their condolences and deepest sympathy to our friend and colleague, John Meagher, along with the family and friends, on the death of our esteemed colleague Mary Meagher. 

 

Mary Meagher of Blarney Inniscarra A.C. and Cork County AAI Board dedicated her life to athletics. That commitment was shown best at club and county level. She was also an officer at Munster level for years and an esteemed official at national level for the AAI. She has been the competition secretary for juveniles at the Cork County Board for almost 40 years and doubled up as the senior competition secretary also for many years.

Marys’ commitment to athletics was such that it is unknown if she ever had a weekend off. She built up a vast knowledge, especially of juvenile athletics, which she imparted generously to thousands of athletes over the last five decades. Indeed, many owe the success of their athletic career to her.

The long hours Mary worked at administration in Cork County has never been surpassed by anyone and unlikely to be in the future. In recognition of that, the Cork County Board last year presented her with an Outstanding Contribution Award.

Her loss to John and her family will be enormous. Her loss to fellow officers of Cork County Board is immeasurable as many officers would have found their roles impossible to carry out without her advice, drive and generous offers of help.

Cork Athletics has now a major void that will be almost impossible to fill.

Girls Under 17 - First 5

Emma Landers ran a brilliant race to take individual Silver, and lead Ireland to Team Silver, at the Celtic International Cross-Country, in Stirling, Scotland, with clubmate, Avril Millerick, in 7th place, the second Irish scorer. The meet took place in very muddy, wet and windy conditions, so the Irish performance was all the sweeter, with the Youghal AC duo taking the scalps of many of the much fancied opposition

 

British Athletics Report

Anna Hedley (Fife; Mick Woods) continued her dominant form in the under 17 women’s race with a time of 22:40 over the 6km course. The result never looked in doubt for the Scot who made it clear from the start her intent to win. She also won the Celtic International ahead of Emma Landers (Ireland), finishing well to take second on the day in 23:01 ahead of Pippa Carcas (Edinburgh; Sandy Cameron) in 23:11 for third.

With top four receiving prize money and Landers not being eligible for prize money as a Republic of Ireland athlete, Anna Mason (Border; Graeme Mason) and Meredith Reid (North Ayrshire; Norrie Hay) in fourth and fifth received third and fourth-placed prizes as the podium held a rare five athletes.

Top 10 - Irish Men's and Women's 10 Mile Road Race Performances during 2019

Irish 10 Mile Rankings during 2019 - Guest Article by John Walshe

Last year an Irish 10-mile ranking list was compiled for men and women, giving all performances under 55:00 (men) and 65:00 (women). This year, a similar list has been put together and it’s good to see a significant improvement in the overall standings.  

In 2018, the total times under the standards of 55:00 and 65:00 were 81 (men) and 47 (women). For 2019, the totals have increased to 119 and 65. As well, the leading marks of Sean Tobin (48:34) and Aoife Cooke (55:17) are faster than last year’s leading times of 48:41 (Kevin Seward) and 56:47 (Laura O’Shaughnessy).

In 2018, eight performance under 60:00 were achieved by women while for last year it has risen to 14. Aoife Cooke has the top three fastest times and it’s also interesting to see that the top six were achieved in Cork races.

A similar number of eight men broke 50:00 in 2018, last year it increased to 12. Some runners seem to have a particular liking for the 10-mile distance, for instance Angela McCann has six times under 65:00 to her credit.

And finally, it is very rare for a man to run 10 miles in a time faster than his age. Last July, 59-year-old Tommy Hughes easily accomplished that feat when recording 54:54 and now that he has turned 60 it should be mere formality for him to achieve the magical barrier of ‘breaking 60 at 60.’



Undoubtably, there will be performances that, for whatever reason, have been missed, overlooked, or, maybe, were run abroad. If you are aware of any, please contact This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

Report on the 2019 CYDI/Winter Training Programme


This year has seen the completion of another successful year for Cork Athletics Youth Development Initiative (CYDI)/Winter training programme.

Eleven sessions were held throughout the year, three took place in the early spring, with a further eight in the autumn/winter period.

Eight event groups were covered in all, with 181 individual athletes, from 21 different clubs across Cork City and county, attendeed, supported by eleven coaches, and two administrative helpers, across the programme.

This has been a big commitment, on the part of both coaches and athletes, and Cork Athletics would like to take this opportunity to acknowledge and thank each and every one, along with the athlete's parents, for their time, effort, cooperation and committment in making this an outstandingly successful venture.


The primary aim of this programme is to raise the technical standard across the eleven event groups. To this end, it has been a great success.

The past year has seen one participant achieve the qualification standard and selection to the European Youth Olympic Festival (EYOF) Championships, in . Others were selected for their first underage international in both schools (SIAB) and the Nation’s cup. Many others again won medals at county, provisional and National Championships. While others set PBs in competition, or just discovered new events and found they had a previously unrealised talent at them.

At our end of year review meeting, all coaches expressed the opinion that they could see a big, and enduuring, improvement in standards and technical ability over the last couple of years, from athletes who had taken part in the programme.


Many reviews of athletic participation have mentioned the worrying trend of the drop off in athletics during the teenage years, and many suggestions have been put forward as to why this happens and how to arrest/prevent it. [This drop-off is not confined to athletics, and has been noted across the entire sporting spectrum, both in Ireland and abroad]

The CYDI/Winter training programme has seen a reversal of this trend. Over the eight autumn/winter sessions a group of 15 to 18 year olds attended all sessions, in their chosen events, and formed friendships and training partnerships across  a wide range of different clubs. They now are all looking to competing against each other in the New Year, and meeting up again, at the Spring sessions. This is great to see, and is something Cork Athletics wishes to foster and encourage.

 

Spring 2020 Sessions

For the spring of 2020 and as a request of many who took part in 2019, three further sessions are scheduled:

Saturday Jan 11th

Saturday February 8th

Saturday March 14th


Following the end of the Cross Country season the distance group will be joining us on the track.
