John Carlin Athletics Awards

The recipients of the 2017 John Carlin primary school athletics awards were  Abbie Mc Granaghan St Marys Castlefinn ,Blaine Lynch St Pats Castlederg and Sarah Bradley Gael Scoil Leitir Ceanainn . They were adjudged to having been the stand out competitors in the recent athletics finals @ Finn Valley to which 1300 youngsters came from 87 schools and were the culmination in many instances of regional qualifying heats which engaged close to 4000 children . It marks a great honour not only for the youngsters involved but for the school and parents all of whom have embraced the project . The awards are presented in memory of late John Carlin , Crossroads ,Killygordon a former Ulster champion and Donegal high jump record holder by his family whom will be  represented by Sean Carlin himself a former national senior champion ,Irish International and record holder accompanied by Irish Olympic Team Manager Patsy Mc Gonagle . The award ceremonies will be held in each of the schools with a quick visit not to upset the daily routine of the school unduly and obviously with the permission of the Principal  where hopefully we be  joined by the school population and attended by parents ,family members and school athletics coaches  

This award is based on excellent performance in the Finals based on fact that they are final  year primary school children.

I had hoped to get to Letterkenny in morning first working our way to Castlederg and finally Castlefinn on June 9th
