Dublin Juvenile Team Competition

Saturday saw the Dublin Athletics Team comps for U9/10/11 boys and girls kick off in Bancroft Park, home of Tallaght AC writes John Dolan.

The sun played its part and our wonderful athletes did the rest – running and jumping to the medal podium.

We coaches could not be prouder of our juvenile athletes today, each and every one of them were amazing. Plenty of medals came back to Raheny. Thank you to all of the athletes (and supporters/families).


U9 Girls: Long Jump gold – Leia Keogh & Sarah Daly.

U9 Girls: 60m Bronze – Leia Keogh & Una Rafter.

U9 Girls: Relay: Silver – Leia Keogh, Una Rafter, Sarah Daly, Lucia Ghidini

U11 Girls 600m Remy Kennedy 2nd place (in her heat).

U11 Girls Relay – Finalists (5th place).

U10 Boys: Long Jump Gold – Eli Esim & Sam McGloin.

U10 Boys: 500m Ben Synnott 1st place (in his heat).

U10 Boys: Relay Finalists (4th). Sam McGloin, Ben Synnott, Eli Esim & Noah McDonagh.

U11 Boys: Long Jump gold- Cillian Ryan & Cathal Doak.

U11 Boys: 600m Bronze – Cathal Doak & Conor Hanly.

U11 Boys: Relay Finalists (5th). Cathal Doak, Cillian Ryan, Noah McDonagh & Rli Esim.

Special mention: Despite a potential sprained ankle in the U11 Boys 600m, Conor Hanly finished an excellent fifth helping secure a solid third place for his team (with Cathal Doak).

Sadly he could not take part in the U11 Boys relay. Up stepped Noah McDonagh and Eli Esim, both performed incredibly in not just the heats but both finals for U10 and U11 Boys (four relays all within the 30mins of each other).

A truly brilliant day for competition and camaraderie. Future is bright!
