Renmore Gymnastics Club brought more than 100 competitors to the 2024 Gymnastics Ireland National GymStart event, which was held at the National Sports Campus, and saw huge success for the city club.

The club secured 13 national titles across 10 of the 11 levels that they entered. Amongst the RGC gymnasts, there were 22 podium finishes who were awarded gold, silver, and bronze medals; and an impressive 55 individual gymnasts achieving a top ten finish.

With many gymnasts performing new routines for the first time, achieving such a high level of success across all categories is testament to the work that the club is doing and of course its dedicated members who are dedicated to their training.

“I really enjoy the GymSTART event because it recognises all the athletes who love gymnastics,” said RGC coach Maria Lynch as she reflected on the weekend and what GymStart means to both the club and its members.

“It’s an opportunity for them to show off their skills and hard work, and is a really fun day out for all. It’s important to have a goal and something to work toward, and GymSTART gives them a focus,” she said.

For anyone interested in trying out gymnastics, RGC runs programmes right through from pre-school to adult classes. For more information, log on to or send an email to
