In the same weekend as Laura won her medal, her father Frank, our coach and chairman, represented Ireland in the British and Irish Masters Cross Country championships in Scotland. Frank’s tremendous form in recent races continued at this event where his position contributed to the Irish Men’s Over 40s team winning bronze medal. The Hayes family “broke” all kinds of records that weekend.
The club was recently privileged to have 2012 Olympic qualifiers Robert and Marian Heffernan lead a training session. Together with their colleague Dermot Mcdermot they gave us some excellent coaching in race walking, sprinting and middle distance running. The evening was thoroughly enjoyed by everyone and concluded with a our Chairman Frank Hayes presenting the couple with a photo frame into which a group photo of the session was to be added. Thank you Robert, Marian and Dermot.
