All-Ireland Medal for St. Mary’s Athletics Star

During the summer months students usually relax during their time off, not Aimee Hayde. Aimee, who recently sat her Junior Cert, has just won an All-Ireland medal in the girls U17 800m. Not only did she bring her medal back to Newport, but she has also sat a new championship record of 2.10.99, beating a 5 year record of 2.10.99.

We here at St. Mary’s are super proud of you. See you in September!

Sonia Who? St.Mary’s Athletics Star Aimee Hayde Beats Olympians Record

We are so very proud of 3rd year pupil, Aimee Hayde as she has just broken a 32 year old record held by the legendary Sonia O’Sullivan. At the Irish Life Health Munster Schools Track and Field Championship in Cork IT recently, Aimee won the intermediate girls 800m in a time of 2.07.74, which is also a European Youth Olympics Qualification mark (according to the Nenagh Guardian).

On behalf of ourselves here at St. Mary’s and Newport AC, we are extremely proud of Aimee who set her new PB with an improvement of 4 seconds.

Best of luck in the next stages of your journey Aimee, we are with you all the way!
