Ireland’s Fastest Feet

Congratulations to Annalyse McInerney, Tommy Mongan and Cian Horkan on their fantastic achievement at the finals of Ireland’s Fastest Feet.  They were crowned Offaly’s Fastest Feet a few weeks ago when they had the fastest times of all the Offaly competitors following their run in Mucklagh Community Centre.  The finals were held at the fantastic indoor arena of Athlone Institute of Technology.  They rubbed shoulders with athletes from all over Ireland and it was very exciting to watch as they lined up for the semi-finals to the cheers and applause from proud mams, dads and friends.  Tommy, Cian and Annalyse ran faster than ever before down the wide blue lanes to the loud cheers and applause from the crowd, we were so proud.  Annalyse was very excited to hear that she won a place in the final eight and had to race again.  That means she is among eight fastest eight year olds in Ireland.  Over 8,000 children competed at Ireland’s Fastest Feet and we are really delighted that our 3 super athletes, Cian, Tommy and Annalyse made it to the top 24.  Keep running, everyone!
