Glaslough Harriers would like to congratulate Amy Hamill on her All Ireland success
in Tullamore on 4th, 11th and 12th of July. Amy won Gold in the U18 800m on the
4th of July. This was a very tactical race with Carla Sweeney trying to overtake
Amy with 200m to go, but Amy's superior fitness saw her win the race comfortably.
On Saturday last Amy also won U18 400m and on Sunday Amy came 2nd in the U18 1500m.
These fantastic achievements are a testament to Amy's hard work and dedication all
year round. Amy is a fantastic ambassador for our club and a great role model for
all our athletes. Amy clearly demonstrates what motivation and hard work can bring
to any athlete. Glaslough Harriers would like to wish Amy continued success. A big
well done also to Rachel Callery and Jack Murphy, who put in Great performances in
the All Ireland Championships.
On Tuesday, July 14th Glaslough Harriers organised a reception and presentation for
Amy to mark this fabulous achievement. This took place at the Sportsfield. I was
unable to attend but Charlotte sent me on these photos of the event and we once again
add our congratulations to Amy and wish her continued success into the future.
New Ulster Champion
On Saturday, October 24th Amy Hamill captured an Ulster U18 Cross Country title in
Jordanstown. Last year during the Cross Country season Amy was hampered by an injury
and was looking forward to this years competitions. She trained hard in preparation
for the Ulster title and succeeded in crossing the line in first place against tough
and talented opposition. This is a great win for Amy and another prestigious title
to add to her ever growing store of trophies and medals. Congratulation to Amy, her
coach and trainer and the Glaslough Harriers Club on this achievement and we wish
her continued success. Thanks to Kieran Carlin for the photos
