2012 Irish National Squad Members

Its official!!! Old Bawn have qualified FOUR gymnasts to the Irish National Squad for 2012!!

On the senior squad we will be represented by Beth Gillmor who has been a squad member since 2008, and Ali Kavanagh who has made a remarkable recovery following a bad injury last year and regained her position on the squad.  On the minor squad we will be represented by Katie O’Hara and Shauna Kelly both of whom only moved up to full FIG competition this year! This is a fantastic achievement for the 4 girls and for the club.
