Congratulations to Billy Coogan
A huge congratulations to Billy Coogan, who has just been announced as the winner of the David Buggy Motors Kilkenny Sport Star Award for the month of March. It is getting hard to keep track of Billy accolades for there are many, most recently Billy was a member of the Irish Under 17 schools cross-country team that took home silver at the Schools Internationals (SIAB) last month.
Last year Billy won the All Ireland u17 steeplechase at the athletics Ireland championships. At the Interprovincial Tailteann Games last summer he came 2nd in the steeplechase, securing his place on the Irish Steeplechase team for the international schools race in Derby, England. He went on to finish 6th out of the Irish, English, Scottish and Welsh runners. In October he finished 2nd in Leinster in the U18 6K also running up an age. Well done Billy.
