Four Old Bawn Gymnasts to Celtic Cup 2012!!

More great news for Old Bawn. The Celtic Cup delegation was announced on Tuesday and we can now announce that FOUR of our gymnasts have been selected to represent the Republic of Ireland at the competition. As a club we will have the biggest representation at the competition which is great testament to the hard work of the gymnasts and coaches over the past year.

On the Junior team we will have Beth Gillmor, who has been selected onto the team for the 5th year in a row, and Ali Kavangh who has returned from a difficult injury to regain her place on the team this year. This will be Ali’s 4th time to compete at Celtic Cup. On the minor team we have Shauna Kelly and Katie O’Hara who have both only moved up to full FIG level competition this year. A pretty impressive achievement for their first attempt! Coach Evelyn Burke will also travel as part of the delegation to the competition as Team Coach for both the Minor and Junior teams.
