The first ever Fermanagh and Omagh Gymnastics Championships, which attracted entries from more than 300 young competitors from across the district, took place recently.

The competition, organised by Fermanagh and Omagh District Council, brought together male and female gymnasts aged 5 to 17 who train at any one of the Council’s four leisure complexes, to compete in the closely contested Junior and Senior events.

Eimear Shannon, who trains at Castle Park Leisure Centre, Lisnaskea, was named Senior Champion while Tiarna McCullagh, who trains at the Bawnacre Centre, Irvinestown, was named Junior Champion. Eimear was also awarded the title of Overall Champion.

Speaking about the competition, the event organisers said:

‘The introduction of gymnastics classes at Omagh Leisure Complex has made gymnastics accessible right across the district helping it to grow. It was wonderful to see so many young gymnasts from across the area coming together to enjoy and compete in the sport at the first district championships.

The coaches from the four leisure complexes are extremely proud of every single competing gymnast, where they showed great skill and fantastic sportsmanship.

None of this would be possible without the continued support and dedication from the gymnasts’ parents and guardians and we would like to express our thanks to them also.”

The Fermanagh and Omagh Gymnastics Championships took place on 7 and 9 April in the Bawnacre Centre in Irvinestown and the Castle Park Leisure Centre in Lisnaskea respectively.
