Ferrybank AC T&F
This T&F is always very competitive with clubs coming from Kerry, Cork, Limerick, Wexford, Waterford, Kilkenny, Kildare and Tipperary. For some of our athletes it was their first competition or first time trying events so it was a great start to the track & field season for them. Three of our athletes won medals and with McDonalds vouchers given to every athlete from U9-U11 each family dutifully made their way to McDonald’s on the way home.
Great day of athletics for all.
