All-Ireland bronze for Feidhleim, 7, at the Community Games


A bronze medal smile for all of Ireland for the Seepersad family

Recognized today as the “Boy from the Meath Chronicle” at the Community Games final in Carlow, seven-year-old Feidhleim Seepersad won the All Ireland Bronze Medal in County Royal.

Everyone in Yellow Furze NS and the surrounding area was in turmoil when Feidhleim’s story was spotted in the Meath Chronicle this week ahead of today’s track and field final in Carlow.

He was even recognized by two Meath supporters in today’s national final as “the boy from the Meath Chronicle”.

And this morning at 11:10 am, Feidhleim competed for Meath and Leinster in the All Ireland National Under-8 60m sprint.

Feidhleim finished an impressive third place for Meath and celebrated with a beautiful bronze medal as well as a participation medal.

Feidhleim trains himself and the Community Games were his first running experience.

It all started on Friday August 6 when he showed up at Seneschalstown to earn a place to represent his club.

He went on to find success at the county and provincial level and has now raced in the All-Ireland series.

Feidhleim is second class at Yellow Furze NS and plays football with Seneschalstown.

Feidhleim had the support of the club, the community and the county behind him today and he made everyone very proud.

Her kitten Oreo and her dogs Thomas (13) and Bowser (one) also all cheered Feidhlim today.
