Cross Country County Championship Report – Oct 2021

A fantastic 143 Naas AC athletes gathered at various starting lines around the Curragh course over two weekends in October. For some, in particular our youngest, their first taste of cross country racing, others were old hands delighted to be back in the fields again for not just one race but two! Everyone ready to give it their all and give it their all they did!

We have 7 newly crowned County Champions, 8 individual silver medallists and 10 individual bronze medallists. One of the great things about Cross Country racing is the team event – here our athletes brought home, 7 team golds, 5 team silvers and 8 team bronze medals. An absolutely fantastic haul! Trailers were ordered to bring them home and in some houses planning permission requested for trophy cabinet extensions!

Comments from An Garraí Beag: 
‘Huge thanks to Naas AC and the Walsh family for their very generous donation to Kildare Down Syndrome Ireland’s horticultural project, An Garraí Beag in Sallins. We received a share of the proceeds of the recent virtual “Streets of Naas” in memory of our good friend Sheena Walsh.
Evelyn, Anne-Marie, Vincent and Tara met up with our Teen Youth Club who are availing of hort during July in An Garraí Beag.
👏👏Sincere thanks to all who took part, donated and helped make that weekend a great success 😊

Marathon for the Alzheimer’s Society of Ireland

It was a bright and sunny morning on Saturday June 12th when Graham Halton and Sean Brophy set off from the Harbour in Naas on their marathon in aid of The Alzheimer’s Society of Ireland. Graham is the son of well-known Naas AC club member Gerry Halton. Club member Ger McKechnie also ran the full 42.2km with Graham and Sean, with Ger acting as pace-maker for much of the route.

Graham and Sean were joined by a collection of Naas AC club members at the start line who ran several km’s in support of this worthy cause. Some of the runners on the day included David, Anne-Marie, Jacinta, Kitty, Alan, Tracey, Tom, Liam, Leah, Vinny, Ruth, Anne-Maria and Cathal .. among others – apologies if we left anyone out.

Other supporters on the day included Alli & kids, Ciara, Layna and Frank who all helped out with water stations, along with Conor, Ben, Kenny, Tara, Paul, Cathy and Yvonne who cheered the guys on at various stages during the day.
