Ciarán Ó Lionáird who was home on a short break. Ciarán echoed the comments of the other speakers, saying that he felt kids starting off in athletics should have an opportunity to try sprints, jumps and distance events and the Leevale meet fills an important gap in the athletics calendar. He also had plenty of words of advice for the youngsters who attended on the night. Ciarán has now returned to the USA to resume his training for the 2012 Olympics in London.
The Leevale Meet for adults and juveniles will be held at the CIT track in Bishopstown in Cork City on the weekend of Sat 14th and Sun 15th of April 2012. More info on this flyer for the event.
