Over the weekend of April 25th 24 Irish gymnasts traveled to Wales to take part in a great battle between the Celtic nations – Wales, Scotland, Ireland, Isle of Man and Northern Ireland in the prestigious gymnastics event – ‘Celtic Cup’.
The 24 strong team, comprises of 12 girls and 12 boys of both Minor and Junior age, proudly 50% of the entire female gymnasts representing the Team Ireland were local Galway gymnasts. Selected for the Irish Minors were Kate Molloy, Aisling Fuller, Jane Heffernan and Emma Slevin who joined Dublin’s Jenny McGrane and Cork’s Meg Ryan to make the final team selection. These 6 gymnasts competed fantastically with PB’s across the board on various events successfully returning home with the bronze medal behind the leaders Wales, and in second place – Scotland. This years Minors squad exceeded all previous Irish teams improving the overall team score by a massive 12 marks!! An exciting future ahead awaits these gymnasts to say to least!!
On the juniors Team was Galway girl’s Sarah Hynes and Emer Shimizu joining Belfast international gymnast Casey Bell, Dublin’s Taylor Coyle, Mayo gymnast Li LIng Martin and stepping in at the last moment due to a withdrawal was Niamh Hutchinson from Dublin. Another very exciting competition to watch as Team Ireland put Scotland under some serious pressure during the last 2 rotations, however on this occasion despite some truly outstanding performances it was the bronze medal that the Juniors also proudly returned to Ireland wearing. The Irish Juniors also making significant progress for the Nation increasing this years team score by over 9 full marks.
Super weekend gymnasts, great result and good luck in the upcoming International Flanders Team Challenge which all of these Galway gymnasts will compete within once again representing Team Ireland over the weekend of May 31st – in Ghent, Belgium.

Tumbling Results

Last weekend twenty-seven tumblers from Renmore Gymnastics took part in the National Tumbling Finals in Universirty of Limerick and came home with twenty-one medals and a trophy, consisting of twelve gold, four silver, five bronze and the overall national female champion title.

In the Level 1, 8,9,10 girls category, Síofra Davis won silver followed closely by her team mate Grace Haugh in bronze, and in the boys, Tom Kidd took the gold. In the girls elite 8,9,10 category, Renmore took the three podium spots with Emma Slevin in 1st, Kate Molloy in 2nd and Jane Heffernan in 3rd and elite boys, Éanna ó hEannaigh took the gold.
In Level 1, 13+ Rosalie Hynes toom a well deserved gold medal in a very tough competition.

In Level 2, 11-12 girls category, Alex-Marie McDonagh performed beautifully to take gold medal position with her team mate Aisling Connaughton taking bronze!

The rest of Renmore’s competitors competed in the elite stream. In Elite Boys 11-12, Hugo Kinehan who travels an hour and a half each direction from Cratloe, Co.Clare to train took gold after a great performance and his team mate Carrigh Murphy fought through illness to secure the bronze for himself.

Elite girls 11-12 again took a clean sweep with Sarah Hynes and Grace Colleran (who also travels all the way from Co.Clare to train) took a joint gold and after watching these girls compete it would be near impossible to seperate the two fantastic performances!! Maya Banarjee then took the remaining bronze after performing more difficult passes than her team mates which were of a very high standard for her age!

Elite boys 13-14, Darragh Moane of Raheen, Co.Limerick who also travels long distance to train under his Renmore coach took gold and maintains his unbeaten record at Nationals from the age of 8. Patrick Flanagan took the silver after an outstanding performance. Elite girls 13-14, Nicole Shaw and Emer Shimizu took gold and silver respectively after fabulous tumble passes!!

Elite boys 15-15 Dean Murray took gold and in the 15-16 girls Emma Greene took gold. Both these tumblers are training towards international competitions over the next few months and did fantastic competing very difficult tumble passes of very high standard.

Some of our tumblers were unlucky not to medal and were in very tough categories with big competition but still performed excently and all competed new, more difficult tumble passes than their last competition. These were Síofra Molloy, Anna Kidd, Aoife Walsh, Nicola Lawless, Eimear Flanagan, and Kim-Li Loke.

Finally the judges announced the finalists which consisted of the top six girls and top six boys between all levels and all age-groups of the day who would go head to head in the final with one shot to win the overall title of National Tumbling Champion of Ireland!
Renmore took ten of the available twelve spots in the finals and whilst the boys were beaten by a strong and experienced 17+ boy from the south, the girls held strong and after a tough battle with everybody giving their very best, Renmore’s Sarah Hynes took the title of Female National Tumbling Champion!! This was a massive achievement and a first for the club!! The rest of the finalists did fantastic but throughout the day every Renmore tumbler shone, looking strong and happy on the tumble track!!

Hard work and persistance pays off!! Well Done Renmore Tumblers!!

Celtic Cup Results and Photos!

Renmore Gymnastics made history this month when four of its members were selected for International competition to represent Ireland at the 2013 Celtic Cup Championships in The Isle of Man on the 11th of May.

All selected gymnasts represented Ireland in the Minors Category across both the women’s and men’s teams. The Irish WAG Minors competed with great focus and determination resulting in some of the strongest Irish women’s artistic performances to date for this event. PBs were achieved for many of the girls across all apparatus and despite their young age the team looked strong and showed much future promise. Renmore Gymnastic’s Ellen Hynes and Old Bawn’s Shauna Kelly returned this year to the team bringing both experience and determination. Joining them on the Irish team for excellent debut performances were Sugarloaf’s Niamh Hutchinson, and Renmore gymnasts Emmeline Anghileri and Amy O’Neill. All team members competed very well, Emmeline placed 5th overall also achieving the second highest floor score of the competition and collectively the team counted just one fall throughout the competition. In the Men’s event Renmore Gymnastics’ Patrick Flanagan had a fantastic debut into International competition, hitting PB’s on the parallel bars, rings and floor exercise.
Last year Renmore Gymastics qualified their first gymnast into this event and to return this year with four members was a very proud moment for the club and evidence that their sporting strategic plans for developing both a high performance programme and athletes to match is having huge success. Well done to all and keep up the good work!!!
