National Festival - August 2017


St Francis Credit Union Clare Community Games did extremely well in the National finals held over the weekend in the National Sports Campus in Abbottstown. The 180 children who participated did themselves, their area & County proud. They took part in a wide variety of sporting & cultural events. They achieved 9 firsts, 17 seconds, 2 Thirds & 8 Fourth places. Make a total of 109 medals. A large number of children reached the finals but were unlucky not to be in the medals. The standard was extremely high in most competitions. Some children won two medals including Gabriel Kehinde who won silver in Saturday in their relay and Gold on Sunday morning in his 100m U16 which was a brilliant finish to his career in Community Games as he is over age nest year. Brothers Morgan & Jack Leahy From Cratloe won Gold medals in U10 & U14 Model Making this was not Jacks first national title. Zoe Quinn from Tulla won a silver medal in the u11 project then went ahead to win another silver in u10 Model Making.

"We thank you Joe Connolly for the great idea you had
For without Community Games we would indeed be very sad
We like to compete and try our best
But always have fun and enjoy with the rest
So here's to the next 50 years of Community Games
And onwards and upwards for some to Olympic Games"
