We were blessed with the weather and the enthusiasm of the great numbers of young athletes who showed up for this inaugural Juvenile competition in Dunboyne. Thank you to their parents who gave up the first few hours of their Sunday afternoon to make the journey to Dunboyne and support their sons and daughters. They all did their club proud with some exceptional performances in many of the events and as an added bonus we won the Perpetual Shield.
For many this was their first example of competition and it will really stand by them as we look forward to the Meath Interclub and Championship competitions. It was a great opportunity for many of our parents to see an athletics competition for the first time and any feedback that I've received has been very positive.
Special thanks must go to Fergal O'Flaherty the man from Dunboyne with the idea for this competition and to all the volunteers from Dunboyne who made the day go so well.
