The County Finals of the 2K Community Games Cycling on grass took place on Monday 11th June at Emo Gaa. Emo/Rath Area hosted the event. We would like to thank them for marking out the pitch for the event and co-ordinating the event. Gilli Walsh Kemmis County Chairperson presented the medals to the winners on the night. We would like to thank Emo GAA for the use of their pitches.
This event is now progressing in Laois with Gillian Keenan Emo/Rath winning Bronze at the National Finals last year. With the performance she displayed in the counties winning Gold she’s certainly in with a chance of winning a medal at Nationals this year.
Eddie Allen Emo/Rath was the winner of the Boys u/12. Again he put in a fantastic performance.
Aoife Langford Emo/Rath put in a great performance winning the Girls u/14 2K.. Brian Ryan Emo/Rath was very strong in his event Boys u/14 2K to win the Gold medal. These cyclists will certainly do their Area and County proud at the National Finals.
It was great to see these children compete even though they had a hectic day on Sunday at the Athletic Track & Field Finals helping Emo/Rath win the Shield for the Best Area in the Competition. Congratulations and well done to all the competitors the first in each event will represent Laois at the National Finals in Athlone in August.
