RESULTS: Big Bluefin BBQ

Thank you to all the athletes and their families for coming along to welcome everyone back at the Big Bluefin BBQ on Saturday 7th September 2019!

It was a fantastic day of food, fun and frolics; and even the sun made a special guest appearance!  Games of leapfrog and hardcore-hide-and-seek got appetites ready for our delicious burgers and hot-dogs; salads and drinks.

Our 2019/20 Junior and Senior Team Captains were announced… congratulations to Robin and Sorcha; Daniel and Lauren.

Thanks to everyone who brought food to share, and a very special Big Bluefin thanks to Londis, Kilcolgan for donations of burger buns; and to Londis, Kinvara for generously donating our burgers and hot dogs.

Huge thanks to Karen and Christine for organising this special team gathering; and to the Kearney girls for putting up the Big Bluefin BBQ Playlist on Spotify – a great start to a brand new season!

How do you like your steak burnt?

We’re licensed to grill… at the Big Bluefin BBQ this Saturday 7th September at 3:30pm in the Walled Garden, Kilcornan.

It’s finger smokin’ good!

Big thanks to Londis, Kilcolgan for our burger-bun donations, and to all the parents volunteering to bring food and drinks, so far. We ask each family to bring either a salad, dessert or drinks, to share with the team!

*** Important Note: with Clarinbridge Market on this Saturday; all parents are advised to use the back gate to avoid traffic!***

Romania Mania!

Bluefin SC join three Connacht Clubs to represent Ireland at the FISEC-FICEP Games 2019 in Bucharest in July.

Congratulations to Sorcha, Caoilin, Robin, Rory, Jake and Luke who recently returned from the FISEC-FICEP Games. Headed by Head Coach Eduardo Santos, the team were joined by County Sligo SC; Laser SC and Castlebar SC.

The main objective of the trip was to give young athletes the opportunity to experience the many factors that an international off-shore competition offers.

To perform in a different environment requires a lot considerations! The athletes negotiated a busy agenda between looking after their competitions, recovery and nutrition, and, of course, their social-life – the opening ceremony, living in the youth village, a cultural tour to the Presidential Palace, running a bazar, an Awards Night and the closing ceremony and disco.

It was a fantastic adventure for all involved – athletes, coaches, team staff, parents and supporters. Ultimately, the team made great new friends through our own Team Ireland, and from all around Europe (and Brazil) – giving our athletes a unique experience and life memories!

Team Ireland proudly won two gold, six silver and five bronze medals – and a lot of lessons learned!

“More than winning a medal, to be part of the Team is an athlete’s privilege!” Eduardo Santos

Big Bluefin thanks for the enthusiasm and support from our six athletes and team manager Helen Van de Beek.
