Report from the Launch Night

31 January 2011

launchThursday 13th of January marked the official opening of Kilkenny Triathlon Club as the launch night took place in Hotel Kilkenny. The people of Kilkenny duly showed that they are not only a fit and healthy bunch but also love a challenge when over 150 people attended the launch of Kilkenny's first Triathlon Club.

The club committee were astounded by the number of people on the night, with fears of only a handful of people turning up quickly being discarded!

Welcoming everyone to the launch, Chairperson of the new club, Emmet McAviney said that he was delighted with the attendance and glad to see that there were so many people taking an interest in the sport: "We decided to set up the club as an outlet for people of all abilities in Kilkenny, interested in the sport to be able to train together and participate in the many events that are taking place around the country as a group, and judging by the number of people here tonight there is a demand for such a club"

Committee member George Sherwood of sherwoodsdigital, the club's main sponsor, said that anyone could complete a triathlon having gone from been very unfit a few years ago to completing the Tri-Athy and the Ironman in Switzerland early last year. George’s story of couch-athlete to Ironman in 2 years was very well received and will hopefully prove inspirational to all in attendance as the tri season kicks off shortly!

Many thanks to Hotel Kilkenny for the use of the room for the evening and also thanks to our sponsors for being present on the night. It was a great way to kick off the club and we are all excited to get to know the members better and get training and racing.

Today, I went to the beach front with my kids. I found a sea shell and gave it to
my 4 year old daughter and said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear." She
placed the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a
hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back!

LoL I know this is completely off topic but I had to
tell someone!

Very good blog! Do you have any recommendations for aspiring writers?

I'm hoping to start my own website soon but I'm a little lost on everything.
Would you propose starting with a free platform like Wordpress or go for a paid
option? There are so many choices out there that I'm totally confused
.. Any recommendations ? Cheers!

Take a look at my website ... เสื้อยืด:
