Offaly sports partnerships
In conjunction with Offaly Sports Partnership, run by Offaly County Council, we engaged in a whole school athletics programme for 6 weeks at St. Mary’s National School. This programme provides highly enjoyable way for young people to try running, jumping and throwing activities as their first steps into athletics. It gives children their first taste of fun and excitement of track and field events in a safe environment, often in areas where the lack of facilities or the weather prevents traditional outdoor activity. Thank you to Denise from Offaly County Council for providing our fantastic 6-week course.
