It may be presumed that the Traceys of Meath are descended from the Uí Bairrche.










The Traceys of Meath can trace their history back to the beginning of historical records, as Meath formed part of the territory of the Uí Bairrche.

At the assizes of Trim, of the 8th September, no less than 27 have been found guilty of high treason. Tracy, who is one of the persons convicted at the above assizes, is a man of some property, and of a respectable family. Thomas Tracy was tried for high Treason, in associating with and arming men to assist the French in case of an invasion. At a meeting of 150 men on the 2nd of March, each man was to raise seventeen men to assist the French on their Landing. Tracy was made a commander of seventeen.

The History of Moynalvey/Kilcloon Athletics Club spans more than two decades. Moynalvey/Kiltale Athletic Club was founded in 1982 by John Durkan and Jim Treacy. While strong links still exist between the parishes of Moynalvey and Kiltale through their respective GAA clubs, the athletics club spread its wings to encompass the parish of Kilcloon and the club as it is known today came into existence c.1989.

The president of the club is Liam Treacy, who got international vests at schools and junior level for 800m and was a multi medallist for 800m at under age levels and competed for many years for Dublin City Harriers.

His wife Siobhan Treacy, is a Chartered Physiotherapist was a member of Dublin City Harriers and won both the inter varsity cross country and 1500m three times representing Trinity College. She was a multiple track and field international at 1500m and competed at the world cross country 3 times. In addition she was silver medallist 3 times in the national senior 1500. Her personal bests are 2.07.0 for 800m, 4.18.0 for 1500m and 2.52 for the marathon. She was part of the only Irish women's senior team to win the home countries cross country international. She was physiotherapist to Irish Athletics for 15 years and was Physio to Athletics at the Barcelona and Seoul Olympic Games.

Daniel, Sara and Fodhla Treacy are their children.




Daniel Treacy (DCU & Moynalvey/Kilcloon AC)

In 2004, Daniel finished 2nd in the 1500m steeplechase in the Schools Athletics International in Chelmsford in July and was part of the Irish Schools Cross Country team in the same year.

In 2006 to 2009, he won a Sports Scholarship
in Athletics to DCU and became a key member of their athletics team. He graduated with a BA in Economics Politics and Law.

26th November 2006 All Ireland Inter County cross country championships, Dungarvan Co Waterford: The Meath Junior Men produced a great team effort to take the Gold medal, lead home by Daniel Treacy in 14th place with all six runners in the top 35.

9th December 2006: All-Ireland novice cross country championships, Athlone Saturday Daniel Treacy was Meath's only athlete in the boys under 19 and he ran well to finish 7th.

She also won the Irish Schools under17 1500m in Tullamore in June 2005 and the Athletics Ireland u17 1500 in July 2005 in Tullamore.

She was a member of a very promising Irish junior cross country squad which finished ninth in the European Junior Cross Country Championship at San Giorgio su Legnano, Italy in December 2006. Sara picked up an injury shortly after the European Cross Country, and was subsequently unable to compete in the spring cross country events. This piece of bad luck ruled her out of contention for another Irish School’s Cross Country title, having already won a record breaking 4 in-a-row previous to that for her former school, The King’s Hospital. Sara’s transition from schools’ to university level competition will no doubt have been made even more enjoyable by the fact that she out-paced two of the UK’s top young athletes, Non Stanford (12:13 ) who has trained with double Olympic gold medallist Kelly Holmes, and 3000m specialist Olivia Kenney (12:55). Of particular note is the fact that this performance came after a 10 month absence from competition.

In June 2011 she took both the 800m and the 1500m events in the Irish U23 National Championships. In July 2011, she was a finalist in the 1500m of the eighth European U23 Athletics Championships in Ostrava, Czech Republic.

In December 2012, she was a member of the Ireland Senior Women Euro Cross Team that won gold in Budapest, Hungary on the 9th of December.

Sara did a one year intercalated science degree at Loughborough University and graduated from the University of Birmingham in July 2013 as a medical doctor.

In December 2013 at the European Cross-Country Championships in Belgrade, in the senior women's race, Sarah Treacy produced her best run yet at this level to finish 31st.

On 18th May 2014 she won the Loughborough International Athletics, 3000m Steeplechase Match.

In August 2016, she finished a creditable 17th place in the final of the 3,000 metres steeplechase at the Rio Olympics.

Fódhla Treacy (TCD & Moynalvey/Kilcloon AC)

9th December 2006 All-Ireland novice cross country championships, Athlone Saturday: Meath Novice Ladies team took the silver medals and Fodhla Treacy (Moynalvey) lead the Meath team home in 7th place.

Fódhla won the Irish universities indoor 800m in December 2006 and places 2nd twice in the outdoor 800m during her 4 years at Trinity (Graduated in 2007).

Fódhla was a 4th year student of Science when she won the Iain Morrisson Award. Her total of 31 Intervarsity appearances in the DUHAC vest speaks volumes about her commitment to the club and to her training. A very consistent performer she has been decorated with seven Intervarsity medals and has represented the club in a number of disciplines including her favourite 800m, Cross Country, Long Jump, Triple Jump, Pole Vault, 4x200m and 4x400m. Fódhla is obviously a very talented athlete but the real achievement was that she saw the importance of her contribution to the team as a whole, always willing to do it for the greater good. Her contribution off the track was equally as impressive. She was on the committee for three years running and held a Captains position for two of these.


Fódhla finished Trinity with a B.Sc. in Biology and graduated from St George's Medical School, University of London in July 2013 as a medical doctor.
