Congratulations to Sarah Healy on her superb victory at the prestigious British Milers Club event in Sportscity, Manchester last weekend. Sarah was running in the 1500m A race and once again produced an outstanding display in a high class field. Her victory included lowering her PB to 4.15.53. Well done to Sarah on her performance/ PB which was just marginally outside the Irish Youths outdoor record.
