Carrick On Suir AC had major success at the All Ireland Relay Finals. The Relay team won two gold medals at a competitive day in AIT Indoor Athletics Track in Athlone.
The Under 17 girls team of Aoife Doyle, Rachel Walsh, Miriam Daly, Rose Ann FitzGerald, Niamh Duggan and Hallannah White ran a record breaking run in 1.43.07. The result shows the hard work and training that the team have put in over the past while was paying dividends.
Not to be overshaddowed by their senior group, the Under 16 Girls team from Carrick On Suir AC took to the track to prove they are a force to be reckoned with. The team of Rachel Walsh, Miriam Daly, Laura Whelan, Rose Ann FitzGerald and Niamh Duggan took the gold in a great time of 1.45.94
The future of Carrick on Suir Athletics is bright, and the performance of the girls is a credit to the team of coaches who have dedicated their evenings to helping the girls, but also the will and determination of the girls themselves is something Carrick on Suir should be proud of.
For a town with a proud sporting heritage, it is brilliant to see another set of starlets emerge from this great Tipperary town. Lets hope this success continues and the club gets the support they deserve
