1962 Cross Country Champions 50th Reunion

On Saturday last, the 1962 Junior County Cross Country Champions from Tuam AC held a very enjoyable 50th Anniversary re-union in Tuam. The team consisted of Tony Blade, Sean and Patrick McHugh, Mattie Flesk, Tom Ryder and Ted Steede. It was wonderful to see these runners meeting up again after half a century to recall their famous victory and they also had their medals from the event in pristine condition and Tuam AC membership cards from the same year. The team was mentored by the legendary Tuam AC coach Paddy Quinn RIP and he was represented by his son Daithi Quinn who also did trojan work for the promotion of athletics in Tuam during his many years as a teacher in St Jarlath’s.
