KILMACOW was the place to be as the St Senan’s club held a smashing open sports meet on Easter Monday.

Despite the cold conditions organisers were pleased to see athletes travel in large numbers from far and wide to participate in their chosen track and field events.

Waterford AC took the overall Shield with St Laurence O’Toole from Carlow second place and local club St Senan’s third. Maria Griffin (St Joseph’s) was an easy winner of the senior women’s 1,500m race while Eoin Brown (Ferrybank AC) won the men’s 3,000m race.

The organisers thanked all the participants and the Kilmacow community for the use of their sports complex.
