What a year for our star athletes and coaches!!

A fantastic evening was had this evening to recognise and celebrate the wonderful achievements of Sarah, Rosin and their coaches Noelle, Haley and Drew and to appreciate the joy and excitement they gave us over the last few years and especially in most recent times.

Sarah blew us away with her performances especially this year. To be the fastest women in Ireland, to hold two national records is truly amazing. What an achievement, we are so very proud of you.

What a fabulous athlete and ambassador for Irish athletics, our club, and the people of Limerick.  We are all so very very proud of our wonderful champion Sarah.

    And on top of all that, to add to Sarah’s impressive season:

1.    In the world championships in August this year(2023) in Budapest, Sarah broke the 100m hurdles national record held by another great Irish athlete Derval O’Rourke in a super time of 12.62.


2.    And on the 4th September this year (2023) in Switzerland Sarah broke the national record for the 100m in a time of 11.27 becoming the fastest women in Ireland.

Congratulations and well done to you Sarah.

Also Roisin was part of the 4x400meters relay team finishing in fantastic time of 3:27.08. Roisin and her team finished in top 8th at the world championships  We are so proud that you wear our club colours and compete for Emerald AC.  Congratulations and thank you Rosin
