Annual Awards Night 2017

A great night was had on 15th 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, and parents for their continued support. We were delighted to welcome Ciara Durkin (long time club member and European Cross Country Team Bronze Medalist) and Isabel Carron (also long time Club member, currently on Athletic scholarship at North Carolina State University) 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 2017 were presented.
