Cabinteely Athletic Club is nearly as old as Kilbogget Park. It's much loved 400 metre track was laid out in the 1970's.
Today there are almost 2o0 athletes and over 30 volunteers within our Club, some who are coaching, some who exclusively help in administration.
Our club was founded by sport loving Pat Finnerty, Belinda Teehan, John O'Driscoll, Declan Egan, all running enthusiasts, and coach Kevin Barry. It was re-established in March 2010 following a lapse in the membership sometime in the mid 1980's.
Within months of 2010, Cabinteely Athletic Club was noted as one of the fastest growing athletic clubs with attendance ballooning from 30 to 90 trackside routinely.
Our athletes continue to go from strength to strength at Dublin and National competitions.
Whilst fun is at the forefront of our training sessions, we aim to help your children find their limits, and exceed them. We strongly encourage all our athletes to take part in the competitions and help build up the points/medals and records for the Club! We compete at all the major track, field and cross country events and they are great days out to mix and mingle with other members in the club whilst cheering "Cabo" on!
Today there are over 30 volunteers within our Club, some who are coaching, some who exclusively help in administration.
As our membership numbers are rapidly growing we need your help and support in all areas to help build on and develop our great club.
Every little bit helps whether you are or were sporty and would like to help coach or whether you are a whizz in design, marketing, PR, fundraising, administration or excel sheets we need YOU.
