All Ireland Championships 2020

Unfortunately, because of the current lockdown due to Covid-19, athletes living in County Kildare were excluded from taking part in the All Ireland Championships (Senior & u23) that took part over the weekend in Santry. We hope our affected members get over the disappointment soon.

Some Le Chéile athletes have been living outside Kildare in recent times so were able to compete.  A huge Huge congratulations to Ciarán Connolly who took bronze in the Senior High Jump & gold in the u23 category. A great clearance of 2m and unlucky not to clear 2.05m. 

Keeley Hogan ran a seasons best 400m in 52.56 and Roís Ni Domhnaill had a good 5.20m in the long jump.

All the results from the weekend are here: http://live.athleticsireland.ie/menu.html

Le Chéile Senior Summer meet 2020 – event information

Thank you to all athletes who have entered the Le Chéile Senior Summer meet this evening.

With the ongoing COVID-19 situation, we have to communicate some very important information and it is critical all those in attendance at the event adhere to all conditions. Athletes have been sent an email with this information.

Everyone that is attending needs to fill out a Covid-19 Pre-Entry form and submit online (link here: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLScbpfEAd4a7IousBT3c8mVvDOgP3ZPK_fdN6wthuSJ6LUITig/viewform?usp=sf_link). This is mandatory and you will be refused entry if you have not completed this form.

Sprint + LJ Athletes will be allowed in to warm up on the back straight of the track. Middle Distance Runners will only be allowed into the venue 30mins prior to their event start time. So initial warm up should be done outside in advance of then.

Bib Numbers are only going to be allocated to Middle Distance Athletes.

Athletes must leave the venue as soon as their event is finished – Athletes who fail to follow this requirement will be jeopardising the schedule and preventing other athletes from having their chance to compete on time later on.

Limited parking will be available outside the venue. Spectators are not permitted inside Le Chéile AC grounds.

Toilets will be available at Le Chéile AC grounds, they are located beside the clubhouse for athletes and beside the club entrance gate.  Toilets at The Leixlip Amenities Centre are not for use of general public and nobody in attendance at the event should try to gain access there to use them.

All in attendance should bring their own water bottles, hand wipes, sanitising gel etc.

Athletes must sanitise before and after their event.

Any athlete who is unable to attend to compete please email info@lecheileac.com.
