Today, in 2011, the club is again rejuvinated and has over 100 children registered with Athletics Ireland, including the Grandson of one of the founding members, Sean Cleary, and ranging in age from 7 years to 17 years. Training is now held at the old All Weather Pitch in Shannon between the Rugby and Camogie Clubs Grounds, on Tuesday and Thursday evenings from 6.00pm to 7.00pm. We have 7 qualified coaches, led by Head Coach Josephine McMahon, endeavouring to bring out each individuals ability whether on the track or in field events.
The Club has secured grounds for the future, circa 8 acres, and we are currently formulating plans to develop this into an all weather pitch complex and a full 400m synthetic running track. With help from Clare County Council, we have recently erected fencing around the site. The Club would like to thank Shannon Town Council, Cllr Patricia McCarthy & Tony Mulcahy for their support, and in particular Cllr Gerry Flynn, who's passion for Athletics has helped strengthen our club! Over the next few years we are hoping to develop these facilities on the property to help improve the facilities available to the people of Shannon and the surrounding areas.
