Flashback to 1986 - Club Newletter Archive:
Like top secret government documents that are unclassified after 30 years for public consumption we have our own bit of history now digitalised. The very first club newsletter that was created on a typewriter by Fr Liam O'Brien gives a great insight to the foundation of the club and the happenings during the first season. Some interesting takeaways:
- We were promoted to 2nd in the National Road Relays due to a disqualification.
- We were 6th in the National Intermediate XC in Navan.
- We made a profit of £250 in the first Castlemartyr 4 mile race (This money is still sitting in the account unused!)
- Denis won his first Senior Championship race!
- The much anticipated East Cork Social cost £5-£6
- National Leagues teams were entered for both men and women.
If you want to read the full newsletter it is saved in the "Old Club Newsletter" section at the top of the page.
