In what was a fantastic week for the Irish squad the best was saved until the last day when Sarah Healy turned in an emphatic performance to take the EYOF 1500m title in Gyor yesterday. The win was all the more sweet as she produced a new Personal Best in the championship final of 4.19.85. Once Sarah took control of proceedings mid way through the race, there was no looking back as she turned on the style with a scintillating last 400m. And just in case you haven’t seen her majestic performance please click here to relive the magical moments.

Congratulations to Sarah on her fantastic run and European Youths Olympic title from everyone at the club.

Lara storms to Silver medal in EYOF cycling Time trial

Congratulations to club athlete Lara Gilespie who clinched a silver medal for Cycling Ireland with an outstanding display in the EYOF Girls Time trial in Gyor last Tuesday. Lara also finished 18th in the road race on Thursday and but for an early race fall in challenging weather conditions, she surely would have figured prominently again. Well done to Lara on a superb few days.

We had some fine performances over the last few weeks:

SIAB Schools International: Oisin Kelly (Newpark CS) rounded off a great season with a fine performance in the Schools International @ Santry. Oisin took the 1500m Steeplechase race out with his English counterparts and whilst he finished in the middle of the pack it was a fine way to sign off on a great season. Training partner Roisin Treacy (Ashford AC/ St Gerards) had a tremendous bronze medal in the girls 1500m Steeplechase.

In Tullamore we had some great performances from Pappy Tucker who won the U16 100m B championship and James O’Brien had a fine top 4 finish in the U14 800m in the same competition. Robyn O’Brien was 5th in the girls U18 100m whilst in the boys U13 our relay team just missed out on qualifying for final and both Anna McCarthy/ shot and Ciara Thornton/ Javelin performed very well.

Well done to all involved.
