Weekly News Roundup - Week 50/2019


Eileen Hayes appreciation night

The club held an appreciation night recently for one of our founder members Eileen Hayes.   Eileen has made a major contribution to the club over nearly 40 years, being the mainstay of the club during that period and she continues to do so. Eileen especially played a massive part in the lives of young people, not only their sporting careers but also life skills in general. The turnout from all the clubs in the county and further afield on the night was a testimony to how highly she is rated and respected.  Many thanks to all who showed up on the night to show their appreciation and share their stories.


Waterford Half Marathon

Marvellous to see mother and daughter Martina and Roisin Cosgrave run the Waterford half marathon last weekend. Both had fine runs in breezy conditions on a hilly course.       


Jingle Bells 5K                            

The Cuddy families were to the fore at the recent Jingle bells 5k in the scenic Phoneix Park. Cyril ran 16:28, a good run finishing 5th in his age category.  Maria Cuddy ran 22:45 just behind Caoimhe Cuddy who ran 22:15, 5th female juvenile, while her sister Emma Jane also had a fine run.  Great stuff by all, well done. your social media marketing partner
