Greenanstown......A place in the Sun

Star of the Sea AC

Star of the Sea AC held their 25th Annual Cross Country Meeting on September 22nd 2013 in perfect conditions on the hills of East Meath last Sunday. This year while the number competing in the junior senior and masters races were down somewhat all the juvenile races saw improved fields of athletes so much so that last year’s record attendance of just over 800 was easily broken – this was helped also by the Indian summer weather that we experienced over the weekend.

 Once again the course on the land of Mary and Brendan Meade provided a great test of cross country running. The club would like to thank all the helpers and club members who beforehand set up the course and on the day work so hard to make the event the success that it is. Thanks is due to all at the tea tent who quenched our thirst on a beautiful day by making five hundred and eighty mugs of tea along with countless sandwiches, buns, scones. Thanks is also due to the scorekeepers, recorders and officials who help make the programme run so smoothly and lastly the club would like to thank all the travelling athletes and their families who travel from as far apart as North Monaghan and South Kildare to make the event the spectacle it is.

This year represented the 25th running of the cross country meeting and to mark the occasion the club presented the original organising committee with a plaques to commemorate the occasion. The plaques were presented by President of Meath Athletics Seamus Brady (Dunboyne AC) to Winnifred Collier, Joe Monks, Niall Delany, Ann & Colm Hanley, Margaret & Jim Berrill, Marie & Richard Brennan, Lorcan Murphy and John Smith.
