The first weekend in April saw a multitude of munster runners from a variety of clubs come together to celebrate their joy of running and no better city could have been nominated then the city of Berlin…. Half marathon was the chosen distance on what is considered The fastest “Sightseeing Tour” in sneakers, with lovely wide roads and a bounty of beautiful sights to ease the burn on the body running 13.1 miles (21.1km) in 18 degree heat and still smile at the end is no mean feat but was achieved by the group of thirtysomething that all travelled under the one flag, Irish athletes in a field of over 35,000….and how did it become a “running spree” I hear you ask …. ah well now that’s the clever bit …All the way from the River Shannon in Limerick to the River Spree in Berlin. Took me all week to think of that ! So to sum up definitely a bucket list race, and for all you juveniles out there, remember in a few years all these trips will be within your grasp. so don’t let up on your training, if your looking to the future have nothing but goals, and when reflecting on the past remember your achievements. Run long and Taper !!

Great Performances At Munsters

Posted on Jan 19, 2015 in Fit4Life, Junior Events Blog, Latest News, Results, Senior Events Blog

A beautiful winters morning, with the sun shining in a spectacular shade of blue, saw our athletes brave the elements and make their way back to Nenagh for the Munster Senior & Masters Indoor Championships
Dooneen were among the most well represented clubs, not only were we strong in numbers but also in our achievements, with many a win, medal and PB coming home.
The senior side was represented by the triple jump duo of Niall and Fiona, very cold conditions for jumping but it didn’t stop them earning a double gold while showing off some of their incredible ninja moves.
The masters were out in force and a couple of newbies in addition to the group, it really is great to see more and more people giving the track a go, and more importantly, loving the experience.
Fantastic results by all individually as well as in the relays. The ladies team stormed to victory in a very exciting race and claimed gold. The men’s team ran like champions, but were very unlucky to finish in 4th place. A big thank you to Joe Chawke who was half way home and half thawed out, only to turn the car around to make up a relay team for the boys, after someone got injured, that really is what its all about, team effort and team pride.

A huge thank you to Steve, Dave, Niall and Joe for their continuous efforts and training,none of this can happen without their help

Posted on Aug 25, 2014 in Latest News, Results

The second weekend of the National Community Games finals took place in Athlone from Friday 22nd to Sunday 24th and what a great weekend it was, Dooneen were well represented in many races and it was lovely to see them represent their county with such pride. Medals are hard to get in the community games as the standard is so high, but many kids did just that
Ellen Lynch ran a superb race in her 600m, there was no stopping her and she was strong throughout, with tears of joy she finished in 1st place Susan O’Neill was back again this year with the Javelin and it seems she has found another strenght as she finished in 4th place

Eoghan Beary ran a strong race in the Marathon u16 in what is a very difficult course, he stayed with the top group throughout and finished 4th.
