Community Games Athletics

The Community Games County Athletics finals took place in Clongowes Wood College yesterday evening, writes Papillon Rabbitte. In what was a cold and wet night the boys and girls of Kilcullen competed in events over a range of distances in the U8 to U14 age categories.

Tuilelaith Mills finished her race in first place and brought home the gold medal in the Girls U8 60m final, Tiernan Donnelly collected gold in the Boys U8 80m final and Leah Tyrrell ran a great race finishing 2nd and taking the silver in the Girls U12 600m final.

Well done to all the young athletes who performed superbly putting in a huge effort while enduring some tough conditions.

Tuilelaith and Tiernan now go on to represent Kildare at the Community Games National Finals in Abbotstown in August. We wish them both the best of luck!
