Dooneen A.C. AGM moved to Thursday Oct 23rd

Posted on Oct 7, 2014 in Fit4Life, Junior Events Blog, Latest News, Senior Events Blog

Dooneen A.C. AGM will take place on Thursday Oct 23rd @ 8.15pm in the Crescent Comprehensive school canteen. All are welcome.

Any items people would like added to the agenda, please contact Tracey at least 1 week in advance of the meeting.

Please mark it in your calendars as all help is very welcome, no matter how big or small. So, if you have any interest in being involved, no one will force anyone into a “big role” if they don’t want it, but why not start small – why not help with any of the following:

  • admin
  • fund raising
  • social coordinator
  • website
  • coaching
  • help in the juvenile side only
  • help in the senior side only
  • take minutes at meetings
  • attend county board meetings as Dooneen representative
  • file registrations (again, broken into juvenile & senior)
  • help with competition entries
  • help with any races the club are involved with
  • help with gear ordering and distribution
  • volunteer to travel on team buses to competitions….

The more the merrier…and the less any one person will have to do!

See you at the meeting!

SMRC 5k/10k a great success…

Posted on Oct 5, 2014 in Fit4Life, Latest News, Senior Events Blog

Well done to everyone who supported the St Michaels Rowing Club 5k/10k (SMRC Urban Run) in aid of CSPP Suicide Prevention Limerick – Ann MacPhail, Tracey Johnson, Louise Matthews, Karen Raine, Michelle Kennedy, Joe Chawke, Kevin Johnson, Geoff deCourcey, Pauline Lowe, Dermot Kearns, Aidan Graham, Ger Meehan and I’m sure I’ve left out a good few more. Dermot, Joe and Ann picked up age category prizes and Tracey was 3rd female. Well done also to past Dooneen A.C. member, Orla Drumm, who stormed home in impressive style to win the women’s event. Huge thanks to SMRC for organising such a great event. Great route, timing, efficiency, stewarding, parking and changing facilities, charity choice and fantastic spread of food and refreshments afterwards. Looking forward to next year already!!

Superb running by both men and women today at County Novice Championships – the Dooneen Women took silver and the team performed brilliantly – Mary Neill Tobin was third overall, Niamh Harnett next, Noelle Kelly, Karen Raine, Fiona Tracy, Michelle Kennedy and Marta O’Sullivan . In the men’s event, Brian Flannelly put in an amazing run to finish amongst the top 3 runners – the official results are not yet ready but we will post them as soon as they are to hand. Next home for Dooneen was Sean Harte who ran great race, Kevin Johnson, Tony Fitzgerald, Brendan Coughlan and Liam Liddy – I hope I haven’t left anyone out. You did us all proud today. Cross Country is never the most glamorous and all runners ran with pride…
