The last 2 weeks have been incredibly successful for local sports club, Galway City Cougars. On March 31st, the Cougars youth and junior level 1 squads aged between 8 and 13 competed at the UK Cheerleading Association’s Northern Ireland Championships in Antrim with great results. The junior squad came in first place by 19 points and the youth squad secured a bid to the Eurpoean Cheerleading Championships which take place in Italy in June and are by invitation only. On April 6th, the Cougars competed in Scotland with our junior level 2, senior coed level 3 and adult level 2 squads. Juniors placed 8th, seniors 4th and adults took home first prize in a competition that was a very high standard of competitive cheerleading. And finally, the Cougars coaches Jamie Byrne, Hilton Holian and Micheal Curley, who also coach at their sister club GMIT Trampolining, were delighted when GMIT students Laura Aiken and Danielle Kelly took home bronze and gold respectively in the Tumbling division at the Irish Student Open Trampolining competition in Belfast also on the 31st of March. The Cougars next competition will be at the Irish Cheer Sport Association All Irelands in May when their youngest group aged 5-10 years will be competing for their first time.
