2016 Annual Awards Night

A great night was had on 16th December when the whole club came together to celebrate the achievements of all Skerries AC athletes over the past 12 months. We recognised the achievements of athletes, some whom competed for the first time this year, and those who have trained with us for years and represented the club on many occasions. We also thanked our coaches for the time and commitment they give to the club in supporting our young athletes. We were delighted to welcome Ailis MacSweeney (our Sprint Coach and Irish 100m record holder) and Ciara Durkin (long time club member and European Cross Country Team Bronze Medalist) to present medals and awards to athletes. As well as presenting Dublin League awards, Dublin Cross Country Awards, and National Medals the following Club Annual Awards for 2016 were presented.
