Welcome to the official Athletics Wexford web site where you will find pretty much everything you need to know about athletics in Wexford. This includes information on the county’s clubs, upcoming fixtures, results and general happenings on the Wexford athletics’ scene.
This year’s T&F season must have been the latest and the shortest on record, starting the penultimate weekend of August, wrapping up September 13th. National Championships for Seniors, Masters, Juniors and U23s all went off without a hitch. Well done to all Wexford athletes who competed. Medal winners were Padraig Hore, DMP U23 Discus); Joe Mooney, Adamstown (U23 5000m Walk); James Hanlon, Taghmon (Junior 5000m Walk); Michael Bowler, Enniscorthy AC (Senior Pole Vault); Jack Forde, St Killian’s (Junior High Jump); Ronan Gately, DSD (M50 Quadrathlon).
Our Fixtures page is regularly updated so keep an eye on that for latest events, rescheduled and otherwise. Wexford, Leinster and National Juvenile T&F Championships have been cancelled.
Keep up to date with general goings-on at the News page. One bit of news we are delighted to announce is that young Kilmore athlete Rory Cassidy has been accepted into DCU to study journalism. Rory has been responsible for some of the fine athletics reportage here and in local media over the last couple of years.

Healthy Mind, Healthy Body
We take the development and promotion of athletics very seriously in these parts. That’s why we have one of the most dynamic athletics communities in the country.
We also pay attention to the big health and social benefits which athletics brings. “Mens sana in corpore sano” as the Romans say! And the good news is that you are never to old, or too young, to start. If you are new to athletics you will find details of the club nearest to you under ‘Clubs’.
Running really is good for you! We spotted an article entitled 10 Mental Health Benefits of Running on Competitor Running (online).
