The Wexford athletics community is still reeling from the sad passing of Athletics Wexford President Pat O’Leary. Read our tribute to Pat.

This is shaping up to be another good year for Irish athletics with some of our top athletes impressing on the international stage, including at the European Championships. Wexford can claim some of the credit for the successes at the latter as Sophie Becker is a New Ross girl and Thomas Barr’s ma Martina is a French from Fethard on Sea! Come August, all eyes will be on Paris and the Olympic Games.

It is very much a case of steady as she goes on the Athletics Wexford front although the T&F season is a little rushed this year because of the Olympic Games.

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).
