Master National title.

Congratulations to Sligo AC's Kevin Mc Glone (Pictured) who won the National Masters 800mts today in Tullamore. Congratulations Kevin from all your friends in Sligo AC.

Generosity knows no bounds...

Pictured above is Mr. Ciaran Donnellan from Amcor Flexibles in Sligo presenting Michael O'Connell (Chairman) and Enda Dineen (PRO) with a cheque towards Club attire and the annual Sligo AC 8K road race, Amcor are one of Sligo AC's main sponsors and thanks to their very generous support the club have already kitted out the members in top class hoodies and will now be able to build on this. Thanks to Ciaran and all in Amcor Flexibles for your support from all you friends in Sligo AC.

Hat's of to Mr. Chairman.....

Any one who Knows Sligo AC's Chairman Mr. Facebook himself Michael O'Connell will know that when it comes to running attire Michael is up there with the best of them, always interested in what's new to the market and what improvements are been made to assist the athlete, one certain item that Michael has a "fetish" for is hat wear, Michael always want's to ensure that he keeps his "noggin" in pristine condition, and this is evident during all seasons of the year when it seems Michael has a hat for every "outfit", so when well known local long distance road runner Ciaran Donnellan was on his summer Holidays in the South of Spain and saw this hat he automatically thought of Sligo AC's Imelda de Marcos of hat's Mr. O'Connell and just had to get it for him at any cost, so now Michael can go for his run with just the one hat for all occasions...
"Health to wear Michael..Looking very classy indeed"....
