On a Tuesday night every metre of track and field at Claremont Stadium is packed with boys and girls training for Navan Athletics Club. You will find lots of the Ard Rí Community among the athletes, coaches, volunteers and spectators and plenty of the Ard Rí mums, dads and teachers will be at the adult training afterwards. Claremont is also home to PT Fitness, Badminton, Basketball, Soccer, Wheelchair Sports, Special Olympics, Navan Men’s Shed. After 20 years of training for all ages and abilities and hosting schools, county and provincial competitions the track at Claremont is worn and torn. This summer a new state of the art track is being installed and the club need to raise €50,000 to get the job over the line.
