New club called Beara AC to launch in Jan 2018

A meeting about establishing a new athletics club on the Beara Peninsula was held in Castletownbere on Friday the 1st of September 2017. Anyone interested in establishing a new club was invited to attend and the meeting seems to have been well supported.

There used to be a juvenile club here some years ago but it seemed to fade away. The current pkan is to officially launch the new club in January of 2018.

From the organisers.... "The idea is to launch a running club for adults, initially, with the hope to move to juniors (12+) within the year and younger juniors in the future. The hope is that we can pool resources to organise races and events of all kinds including road running, x country and mountain ... and maybe shorter distances and track in future, actual track permitting!! We have a running coach (me!) specialising in adult beginners/improvers (endurance). "
