'Fun and run' aspect is very important at Fethard Athletic Club

At the moment we have twenty athletes of various ability attending our training sessions on Monday and Thursday nights in the Community Field. The 'fun and run' aspect of our training is very important to the enjoyment of the many and varied exercises we perform during the hour while we in the field. Individuals will decide when they are ready to move on to something a little more strenuous.

Coach, Derek Zulu, is more than happy to have one-to-one tuition with anyone if desired. We are hopeful to have teams entered in the forthcoming novice road and relay championships.

The cross-country, run under lights before Christmas, was a great success and also very beneficial to those who took part. Thanks to the clubs who supported us. We look forward to the same clubs attending our Spring League which will start shortly.

Derek took part in the senior indoors in Nenagh but with little success. We expect him to get a chance to redeem himself at the all Irelands in the Odyssey in Belfast later in the year.

Our club jackets are now sold out but another batch is on the way and by the weekend we will be able to fill the outstanding orders. Due to the good feeling at our Christmas dinner we are thinking of repeating a similar function at Easter.

Our AGM will be held shortly after which we hopefully can move onto better things.
