CIT Hammer Cage Back in Service - July 2019

CIT Throwing Cage Has been Repaired...BUT With a Caveat

 

Message from Liam O'Brien (July 9th 2019)

 

 hammer cage wind damage april 2018

The hammer/discus cage at CIT Track has is now been repaired.

Going forward, the onus is on us, the athletic fraternity, to ensure that the facility is looked after properly - not the CIT groundsman.

With that in mind, there will be a brief in-service on the raising and lowering of the netting, at 7pm, on Monday evening next, July 15th, prior to the Graded League event.

Only coaches/officials/throwers who have attended this or a future in-service will be entitled to use the cage.

 

Most of the past damage to the cage has been caused by the net being left in the raised position for extended periods of time.

To avoid future damage to the cage, the net must be lowered after each usage.  That means that ALL USERS OF THE CAGE WILL HAVE TO FULLY RAISE AND LOWER THE NET BEFORE AND AFTER EACH SESSION. This might be an inefficient way of conducting our business here, but as the primary users of the track we have to take ownership of the upkeep of the facilities.


It is hoped that this process will be self policing by the relatively small but dedicated number of individuals who regularly the cage.

 

Webmasters Note:
As Liam said, the past damage has been caused due to the netting being left up during stormy conditions. People may feel that netting, with all the holes will allow wind to easily pass thro'. Unfortunately not so - In high winds, the wind behaves almost like a solid, so, on hitting the cage, complete with netting, something must give. 

 

cit track cage netting

The Cage has been damaged at least twice in the past 12 months, and, as a consequence, has been out of action for extended periods. The last period has lasted several months.  However it appears that people have NOT learnt. Last Thursday, when I arrived at the track the netting was up, but nobody was using the cage. This evening, the cage was up again, but, again, nobody was using it.  The netting is being left up again!

We ARE going to have more storms...and if the netting is left up, the cage will be damaged again. This CANNOT continue. There are no malicious vandals going into the Track arena when everyone has gone home. The Netting is being left up by people in the Throwing Community.  As Liam says, it is incumbent on you to ensure that the Netting is raised and lowered each time. If the cage is damaged again, it is the Throwing Community that will suffer - as in the past few months, the other events continue as usual.

YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!

Athletics Ireland Preview of Athletics Ireland National Under-20 & Under-23 Championships

Top tussles in store in Tullamore

An exciting Irish Life Health U20 and U23 Championships takes place in Tullamore Harriers’ stadium on Saturday (July 6).

All the action of the championships will be streamed live on Athletics Ireland’s Facebook page

 

Live results, entries and timetable

 


Under-20 preview

Ireland’s underage rising stars will be on show with some looking to seal selection for the European U20 Athletics Championships in Boras, Finland.

The sprints continue to take centre stage with the 100m and 200m promising some exciting battles and fast times in the offing.

Training partners Rhasidat Adeleke (Tallaght) and Patience Jumbo Gula (St Gerard’s Dundalk) are down for the 100m.

There is a deep field in the men’s 100m headed by none other than Aaron Sexton (North Down). It should prove to be an exciting race. He is also listed in the 200m along with Reality Osouha (Fingallians) and Conor Morey (Leevale).

Davicia Patterson (Beechmount Harriers), Lauren Cadden (Sligo) and multi-event star Kate O’Connor (St Gerard’s Dundalk) are listed in the women’s 200m.

Simone Lalor (SLOT), Rachel McCann (North Down) and Sophie O’Sullivan (Ballymore Cobh) are among those in contention in the 400m.

The men’s 400m has the likes of Tony O’Connor (Naas), Jack Raftery (Donore Harriers) and Jack Mitchell (SLOT).

Sophie O’Sullivan is also listed in the 800m where she might face off with Sarah Healy (Blackrock) and Jo Keane (Ennis Track). Healy has the fastest 800m but it could prove to be an exciting tussle nonetheless.

Ava O’Connor (Tullamore Harriers) and Jodie McCann (DCH) look like they could have a duel in the 1500m.

Equally there should be a good duel in the men’s 800m between Louis O’Loughlin (Donore Harriers) and Mark Milner (Tullamore Harriers). American based Tristan Forsythe (Clonmel) heads the list in the 1500m.

There is a 3,000m instead of a 5,000m this year and Grace Carson (Mid Ulster) will be favoured. Danielle Donegan (Tullamore Harriers) will be one to watch in the 3,000m steeplechase.

The men’s 3,000m has good depth with Shay McEvoy (KCH), Shane Coffey (Naas), Keelan Kilrehill (Moy Valley) and Jamie Battle (Mullingar Harriers) to name but a few.

Jennifer Fidgeon (Mullingar Harriers) will be among those looking to do well in the junior women's 3,000m race walk with Matthew Glennon (Mullingar Harriers) aiming for gold in the men’s 5,000m walk.

Alison Burke (DCH) is one to watch in the 100m hurdles while Miriam Daly (Carrick on Suir), Ciara Deely (KCH) and Deirdre Murray (Na Fianna) could have a cracking battle in the 400m hurdles if they all choose to run.

Joseph McEvoy (Nenagh) is one of the leading entries in the 110m hurdles with Tony O’Connor (Naas) and Jack Mitchell (SLOT) entered in the 400m hurdles.

Aoibhinn McMahon (Blackrock Louth) will be aiming to do well in the javelin, shot put and discus. As will Ciara Sheehy (Emerald) who is listed for the shot, discus and the hammer – her strongest event.  

James Kelly (Finn Valley) is a leading entrant in the shot put with Sean Mockler (Moycarkey Coolcroo) in the discus and the hammer. Joseph McEvoy will also look to show his adeptness in the javelin.

World U20 silver medallist Sommer Lecky (Finn Valley) is coming back into form in the high jump which also includes Ciara Kennelly (Killarney Valley) and Kate O’Connor. Nelvin Appiah (Longford) is sure to grab the crowd’s attention in the men’s high jump.

O’Connor is also listed in the long jump that has Ruby Millet (St Abban’s) and Adeyemi Talabi (Longford) among the contenders. Talabi is also down for the 100m. Laura Cunningham (Craughwell) and Gospel Idahor (Longford) will be aiming to do well in the triple jump.

Wymin Sivakumar (Leevale) will look to place well in both the men’s long jump and triple jump.  

The pole vault has been improving and Orla Coffey (Carraig na Bhfear) has been in good form. Anna Ryan (Moycarkey Coolcroo) will be among the field looking for new heights. Matthew Rossiter (St Abban’s) is among those in the men’s pole vault.

The day will round out with the weight for distance and the 4x100m and 4x400m relays.
U23 preview

World U20 relay medallists Ciara Neville (Emerald), Gina Akpe Moses (Blackrock Louth) and Molly Scott (SLOT) are among those stepping up to the U23 category with a large number of athletes fine-tuning for the European U23 Athletics Championships in Gavle, Sweden next week. .

The 200m includes Sharlene Mawdsley (Newport) and Sophie Becker (St Joseph’s) while in the 400m Nadia Power (Templeogue), Jenna Bromell (Emerald) and Louise Shanahan (Leevale), all 800m specialists, are listed. Shanahan is also down for the 800m.

Carla Sweeney (Rathfarnham) looks the favourite in the 1500m with Claire Fagan (Mullingar Harriers), selected for the 10,000m in the Euro U23s, is also listed.

Fagan is also down for the 3,000m that includes Siobhra O’Flaherty (SLOT).

The women’s 100m hurdles looks enticing with Elizabeth Morland (Cushinstown), Sarah Quinn (St Colman’s South Mayo), Kate Doherty (DSD) and Molly Scott (SLOT) all entered.  Niamh Malone (Monaghan Phoenix) will look for gold in the 400m hurdles.

Sinead O’Connor (Celbridge) is another who will be looking for gold in the women’s 3,000m race walk.

Throwing heroine Michaela Walsh (Swinford) could potentially win triple gold in the javelin, hammer and shot put. Noelle Lenihan (North Cork) will look to do well in the discus.

Ellen McCartney (City of Lisburn) recently set a national U23 record in the pole vault and will rightly start as favourite. Elizabeth Morland is the leading entrant in the women’s long jump with Lydia Mills (Ballymena & Antrim) looking to place well in that event and the triple jump.

Joseph Ojewumi (Tallaght) is one of the lead entrants in the men’s 100m with Mark Smyth (Raheny Shamrock) looking for a good run ahead of the 200m in the European U23s next week. Paul McDermott (Donore Harriers) will be among those looking to do well in the 200m which also includes Cillin Greene (Galway City Harriers) and Cathal Crosbie (Ennis Track).

Greene, who ran in the European Indoors, is also down for the 400m that has a good entry list including Craig Newell (Ballymena & Antrim), Jack Manning (KCH), Thomas Piktin (Clonliffe Harriers) and 800m specialist John Fitzsimons (Kildare).  

 The 800m should see Luke McCann (DCH) as favourite as he sharpens up for the 1500m next week along with Cathal Doyle (Clonliffe Harriers).

McCann is also listed in the 1500m that also has a good entry list including Youghal’s Fearghal Curtin. The men’s 3,000m includes Garry Campbell (Dunleer) who competes in the 10,000m next week.

Cathal Locke (Dooneen) should be the favourite in the 400m hurdles with David Kenny (Farranfore Maine Valley) the favourite in the 5,000m race walk.

Ryan Carthy Walshe (Adamstown) will be favoured in the high jump with Keith Marks (Clonliffe Harriers) aiming for gold in the long jump. Caolan O’Callaghan (Tir Chonaill) should head the triple jump.

 

Adam Kelly (Brow Rangers) will be among those looking to do well in the shot put with Eoin Sheridan (North Westmeath) favourite in the discus. Owen Russell (St Andrew’s) and Adam King (Iveragh) should have a good battle in the hammer.

Juvenile Championships signals the summer

The three-day festival of athletics in Tullamore starts on Sunday (July 7) with day 1 of the Irish Life Health Juvenile Track and Field Championships.

The juvenile championships, not run in three days concurrently, truly signifies the summer holidays for young athletes around the country with a sense of freedom, and nervous tension, in the air as they compete for podium places in a myriad of events.

Day 1 sees plenty of hurdles finals along with 600m and 800m races on the track. While the field eventers mix it in the javelin, hammer, triple jump and high jump.

The standard of the sprint hurdles has increased the last number of years – Derval O’Rourke’s successes no doubt playing a role in the trickling down to an increased amount of sprint hurdles in the juveniles – some even unbeknownst to her medal-winning performances.

Ava Rochford (Ennis Track) will be one to watch in multiple events including the U15 girls’ 80m hurdles while Laura Gallagher (DSD) should have a strong showing in the U17 100m hurdles. Adam Nolan (SLOT) is set to compete in multiple events in the U16 section including the 100m hurdles and high jump.

Adrienne Gallen (Lifford Strabane) will be one of the strong throwers to look out for on day 1 in the U16 girls’ hammer. Conor Cusack (Lake District) in the U18 boys’ javelin and Ciara Sheehy (Emerald) in the U18 girls’ hammer are among plenty of fine throwers in the country to keep an eye on.

Dillon Ryan (Moycarkey Coolcroo) in the U17 boys’ triple jump is among a host of talented jumpers competing on day 1.

The 800m races always deliver some exciting races. Some of the athletes to watch out for over the two laps of the track are: Sadhbh Mohan (MSB) U16, Ava O’Connor (Tullamore Harriers) U17, Lucy Holmes (West Waterford) U18, Ellis Conway (Carrick-on-Shannon) U19, Myles Hewlett (United Striders) U15, Jack McGlone (Greystones & District) U16, Aaron Shorten (SLOT) U17, Tommy Connolly (Leevale) U18 and James Dunne (Tullamore Harriers) U19.

The steeplechase also provides drama and excitement. Some of the runners include Roisin O’Reilly (Menapians) and Roisin Treacy (Ashford) in the U18 girls’ 2,000m steeplechase and Fionn Harrington (Bandon) in the U18 boys’ 3,000m steeple.

63,4% of Cork Athletics members registered during 2018 have renewed their memberships this year. Of concern must be the fact that 36.7% have not renewed their registrations, so far, during 2019.

 

Comparing June 30th 2019 with June 30th 2018, 1,458 (33.7%) of last year's 4,332 adult registrants haven't returned, while 1,703 (39.6%) of the 4,296 Juveniles haven't come back yet. These non-renewals have been offset by 668 new adult registrations, along with 1,152 Juveniles. 

Juvenile drop-out is a worrying issue for all sports, nevertheless some action is warranted to tempt back some of those who have left the sport. Experience, across a wide range of sports & activities, has shown that many can be persuaded to return, by simply making contact - a phone call, email, message, or simle chat in the street can pay dividends.  Such contact can also be a great source of information for clubs, in particular reasons why people don't renew, and actions can be taken to address these issues, for the better of thhe club and it's members.

If YOUR club has lost some members - and, without doubt, you have, why not make contact with lapsed members and just chat... "We've missed you....  Would you like to come back....?  Was there something/somebody that put you off...?

It can pay dividends. You don't have to contact everybody on one day....a couple at a time...delegate some...Just Do It!


Just two clubs clubs now have less than the required minimum of ten (10) registered members to constitute a valid registered club. While this may not appear to be a major issue for them - Club Members may still compete in championships - it does constitute some difficulties, e.g. they may not vote on a County Board matter and, perhaps of more significance to some clubs, they may not apply for Race permits as a registered club (at least until they have at least 10 registered members)

 

As always, clubs are reminded that new members may 'try out' the club for a few weeks, after which they MUST be registered, or they will NOT be covered by Athletics Ireland insurance

 

Feb 1: Any athlete, coach, official, or any member acting in any capacity, who remains unregistered is NOT covered by Athletics Irelands insurance, for ANY purpose whatsoever, including training and/or competition.

The Registration facility is open

Senior Registrations

Senior athletes are, or should include, the 'Elite' members - this is the age group from which our Provincial, National and International athletes will emerge.  The numbers in this age group, from those born before 2000, and aged under 35, continues to be disappointing low, particularly in the early 20's ages.  While athletics is not the only sport experiencing this issue, clearly Cork Athletics and Athletics Ireland urgently needs to formulate a strategy to attract and retain athletes in this age range
