Bandon AC Open Sports...Sun 7th Sept 2014

Bandon Athletic Club were formed back in 1964 and in 2014, they celebrate their 50th anniversary. To commemorate this, the club is holding an Open Sports Day in Bandon Town Park.

From Bandon AC......The Open Sports Day is being hosted to celebrate our 50th birthday and to coincide with the first open sports held in Bandon back in 1964. 

We are hoping for a competitive and fun day for both juvenile and senior athletes. Admission is €5 for adults, €3 for juvenilles/juniors and €10 for a family which covers entry to any of the events. Junior and Senior pre-entry is available which will help the organisers but athletes can simply enter on the day if necessary. The full order of events and pre-entry can be found on

The day starts with juvenile events at 12 pm with the first senior events starting at 2pm. Linking back to a tradition when cycling was a core part of many athletic events, there are 3 cycle events included on the programme which should make for an interesting change.

Please note that this was originally due to be held on the 24th of August but had to postponed due to wet weather.

Further info...(note the times are the same as originally planned for the 24th)
