Last night, 9th February, a very successful meeting of senior Galway athletes and club members was held in Athenry. The objective was to generate ideas to improve participation and competition at a senior level across the county. A wide range of issues were discussed including racing, training and communications. Nearly forty very enthusiastic and positive participants helped to make the meeting a success. The meeting will be reported to the Galway County Board meeting next week.
