Fethard Athletic Club hopes to hit new leve in coming year

Well done to all our guys and girls who ran in the County Novice on February 17 in Clonmel in what was a great day for our club. We fielded both a mens’ and ladies’ team with ten runners in total, the like of which has not been seen since the 1980s. This was a massive effort from a small club and now there’s no reason why all our best times need be in the past, so lets look to a bright future.

On Sunday, February 3, Fintan Rice came an impressive 5th in the Moyne 5k, with his daughter Jennifer Rice also running strong and finishing well placed overall. Wednesday night, February 6, saw Fintan Rice continue his winning streak in the Clonmel 4k series with his third win in a row. We had great results right down the field with Tony Shelly, Brian Slattery, Jennifer Rice, Ann Coen and Louise Coen all doing themselves proud. Great stuff lads, the hard work is paying off.
