From humble beginnings our wonderful Athletics Club was
founded. Through the sheer love of running and thoughts of bringing a community
closer together, we started as a simple running group with little more than 20
people flying the flag on a Tuesday night in Watergrasshill.
With every step we prospered and grew in ranks, 20-30-40
and more. We are a club that somewhere along the way picked up the title of
"The Friendly Club"!!!
With growing numbers and growing input we put ourselves
forward to The Cork County Board, following that Athletics Ireland and so
Watergrasshill AC was born, January 2014.
A little over a year later and we boast 120+ numbers, and
are in the top 10 Cork Clubs.
As a runner, I wear my club gear with pride, when I see
members wearing our gear, I think back to the very first night, where it all
began and cannot believe how far we have come.
As chairman, I consider every member a good friend, I
have and will continue to do my upmost for this club and its progression. We
are learning as we go, but with a strong committee and members who care, we are
the up and coming club in Cork.
We train hard, we compete at all levels and are "The
Friendly Club". Thinking of Joining an AC? WGH AC is for you.
