Classy Dundalk girls reach top tier

The Argus - - SPORT -

DUNDALK RFC U18 girls have been pro­moted to the Le­in­ster League Premier Di­vi­sion for the first time in the club’s his­tory.

This group of tal­ented play­ers and their coaches Suzanne Flynn, Der­mot Len­non, Linda Valen­tine and Kevin Con­way have made our club ex­tremely proud and thor­oughly de­serve this phe­nom­e­nal achieve­ment.

Many Dundalk RFC coaches who have nur­tured and de­vel­oped the tal­ent and skill set of these girls and the club thank them for their com­mit­ment to them and their be­lief in them in­clud­ing Sab­rina Maguire who has had a phe­nom­e­nal in­flu­ence on girls rugby in Dundalk, Chris Scully, Maria Cartwright, Lau­rence Steen and Sharon Toal, all of whom have played a sig­nif­i­cant part in putting girls rugby in Dundalk on the map. GLEN­MORE AC se­nior ath­letes took part in the very pop­u­lar and well or­gan­ised Wild Goose Chase 10k race in Reagh­stown on Sun­day.

Pe­ter Noone led the way in 39:22, fol­lowed by Brid­get McGree­han 58:08, Dara Fa­gan 58:42 and Vicky Leahy 1:05:21.

The equally pop­u­lar Op­er­a­tion Bush4­ma­tion kicks off on 7th Jan­uary for four four weeks at the Bush track at a cost of €50.

FOR an ideal Chris­tams Gift why not avail of the early bird reg­is­tra­tion on Mon­day 10th De­cem­ber be­tween 7 - 8 pm at the track.

With a pro­gramme packed full of ac­tiv­i­ties to kick start be­gin­ners or to mo­ti­vate oth­ers there’s some­thing to suit ev­ery­one.
