Well done to the Club Members who ran the Dublin City Marathon last Sunday. It was a very special occasion, the atmosphere was electric and the crowds of supporters on the day were just amazing. There were some very impressive results posted too and Ruairi has plenty more on this HERE. Alongside the congratulations to the club members running, is a very special word of thanks to the Eagle members who go out of their way to assist other club members in achieving their goals, providing training plans, advice and a listening ear to get people to the start line long before they reach the finish line. This is most sincerely appreciated and peer support is a very strong quality within Eagle AC.

We wish club member Mark Smith the very best of luck as he heads to the USA to take part in the New York Marathon. This will be Mark’s first race in his new EAGLE AC singlet and we will be thinking of him and wishing him the very best on the day.

New club logo!


New month, new logo! The club has now introduced a new logo as shown above on the right.

While the old logo has served the club well for many years, it was thought that the new version would be more distinctive when seen from a distance. The decision to change was made by the club members who voted in favour of it by 64% to 38%.

As part of the change, the club has also decided to increase the subsidy for all singlets so that they now cost just €10. While the old logo is likely to be seen around for a while yet, the new logo will gradually replace it over time.
