Sports round-up

Lucan Harriers athletes came out on the night of Monday 15th January to run a last lap of the old cinder track before work starts on the new tartan track. Vinny Murtagh, Jean Murtagh and Ann Magee who all ran the first lap of the cinder track when it opened in 1984 were there to take part in the last lap along with members of the Senior, fit4life and the juvenile sections of the club.

Frank Greally of the Irish Runner magazine visited and joined in running with everyone.

We look forward to the work on the new track starting and it opening before the summer. Fundraising is ongoing.

Winter League: Week two of the Winter League saw the ladies taking one scalp with Linda Thomson beating Mick Monaghan. Our spies tell us that the Dream Team were seen practicing under lights and it seems to have paid off as they took six points this week.

Rooney’s Rogues and the Golden Oldies suffered heavy defeats last week but still feel confident of qualifying in their sections – not sure if it is a wishful thinking!

Good enjoyment and banter last Sunday – looking forward to seeing you all next Sunday. May we thank our sponsors of the Winter League - Halpenny Golf - for their continued support to our Club which we very much appreciate.

Ladies: The Saturday practice has commenced again at 1pm weather permitting.
