Two Presidents present awards

The Meath Athletics Board held its 2012 awards presentation and dinner at
the Old Darnley Hotel in Athboy last Sunday evening. Over 250 attended the
ceremony which acclaimed athletic performances by young and old in T & F,
road, cross country during the year. The President of Athletics Ireland, Professor Ciaran O Cathain and
the President of Meath Athletics Paddy Reilly made the presentations across
the various categories. The AAI President spoke of the exciting new indoor
arena which he is involved in developing at the Athlone Institute of
Technology. He is optimistic that Usain Bolt will be present at the opening
ceremony in spring 2013. He was full of praise and encouragement for the
volunteers who officiate at events and administer the sport. He complimented
the clubs of county Meath on how they have developed new talent and looks
forward to seeing athletes from the county taking their places on national
squads in the coming years.
