KCK Athletic Club Celebrate 25 Years
KCK (Kilrossanty, Colligan, Kilgobnet) Athletic Club marked a big milestone, as it surpassed its 25th year anniversary. Established back in the Kilrossanty area, the club has grown over the years and its base in Lemybrien in recent years has seen it become a real feature of the community here and in the surrounding areas.
Through the years the club has enjoyed wonderful success, with our athletes taking numerous provincial and national titles. Besides titles and medals, the club is an advocate for fitness and healthy living, providing athletes with a safe and happy place to get fit and keep healthy. Athletes from parishes far and wide have and continue to benefit enormously from the services it provides.
The club today is gearing up for another cross country season ahead. Head coach Richie Browne continues to lead the club. His ever enthusiasm and commitment is admired and most appreciated by everyone at the club. Breda Keane, John Behan and all other committee members have shown excellent dedication over the years and have meant the club continues to thrive today.
A wonderful training morning was held last Sunday with around 50 athletes attending. Laura Behan was on hand to present athletes with commemorative medals and snacks to celebrate the occasion. As well as putting the athletes through their paces on the field, she also had some valuable words of advice for the current crop of young athletes training. Laura has been one of the clubs finest athletes in recent years, taking national cross country and middle distance titles as well as representing Ireland at the European Cross Country Championships on two occasions.
