Clare Community Games Athletics 2015 Print

The County Athletic Finals were held on Sunday, 21st June on the Synthetic Athletic Track at Lee's Road, Ennis.  Check out the great photos from the date on our Clare Community Games Facebook page (many thanks to Mary Loughnane).

Athletics Results


Ciara Revins, presenter of the Clare FM Breakfast Show and Clare FM's Sports Editor Derrick Lynch of Side Line View featured a number of participants in the run up to the county finals - you can listen to the podcasts here!


Prior to the Finals there was a parade of the athletes, headed up the members of the Tulla Ceili Band.

We extend our deepest sympathy to the family of the late John O'Sullivan, former President of Clare Community Games, who sadly passed away suddenly a few weeks ago. John's presence, humour, patience and kindness was sorely missed by us all on 21st June and a minutes silence was held in his honour before the games commenced.
