The CSIT Games occur every 2 years with more than 40 countries competing, in a number of different sports, including Athletics. The games are seen as transition to senior competition for promising young athletes.

He is currently the top junior High Jumper in Ireland.  He has won numerous All Ireland Titles, along with Provincial & County titles.  Ciaran has previously represented Ireland in the Celtic International & SIAB Schools International. Ciaran will compete in the High Jump and the 400m hurdles at the CSIT games.

Over the same weekend Caoimhe set a new Leinster championship record in the 400m.  Caoimhe has represented Ireland in the Celtic International and the SIAB Schools international. Caoimhe is a member of the 4 x 400m National Junior U20 relay squad, she is the youngest of this team. Caoimhe will compete in the 400m and 200m in the CSIT games.

Lisa Dixon is coach to both Ciaran and Caoimhe. She has coached several other athletes to county, provincial and national titles. As well as coaching many young and senior athletes she is also busy in the role of Secretary of Le Chéile AC. Her success has been rewarded when she was appointed as lead coach / team manager along with Fintan Reilly of Dunleer AC for the CSIT games.

Le Chéile AC wants to express our support and acknowledge all the hard work and dedication carried out on a weekly basis by all three that has led to this selection. The very best of luck at the games!
