Cork city Sports 2019 Launch

Not long to go until the 2019 meet which will take place on WEDNESDAY the 14th AUGUST 2019 at 5.30pm.  Leisureworld will once again sponsor the very popular open mens 3000m  race and the always competitive 800m T54Wheelchair Men.

We were delighted to launch the LeisureWorld T54 Wheel Chair Race on Tuesday 30th July with Athlete Cillian Dunne. He will be competing in the invitational 800m. Cillian has been wheelchair track racing since 2011. Within months of taking up the sport he returned to the Irish squad as a track racer and in 2014 competed at the 10th International World Junior Games in London and this year in the Netherlands.


He has now reached number seven in the world junior rankings. Cillian has taken part in the Limerick Run 10K for the past few years. He has competed in many local 10K races and can often be seen training on the walkway at Borrisokane Community College and the Nenagh bypass. He recently came home with 5 medals at the National Senior Para Athletics Championships and is looking ahead now to the Cork City sports!
