00041f77-642The new international Arena at Athlone Institute of Technology is the best news story in Irish Athletics history. It’s construction, and now finally, the opening of this world-class facility will inspire future generations of Athletes towards greatness for many tears to come. My only disappointment is, I will never get a chance to break a world indoor mile record on it’s magnificent 200 metre oval track.

Congratulations to AIT on the opening of Ireland’s first international standard indoor track. I’m sure this will be a welcome addition to athletics in Ireland and be a winter home for many future Irish Athletes. The investment and foresight by AIT will be sure to enhance the ability of many Irish Athletes to train at a high level throughout the winter months and also perform at home in front of their friends and family in a word class Facility.[/testimonial]
