AmyRose takes brave bronze at Schools International in Kent after mid race fall

Comments Off Uncategorized

It was a busy weekend for the Irish Junior athletes who were competing in Kent & Tiblisi. Our very own AmyRose Farrell was in action at the Schools International T&F in Kent. And what a race she was involved in. Having been in a commanding position half way through the race she was involved in a “heavy” collision with one of the English athletes. By the time both athletes got back on their feet a gap of over 30m had opened up to the main group with the leadrs a further 10 metres ahead. AmyRose battled bravely to get back to the main group and then pushed on again finishing in third place in surely what was the “comeback of the day”. Well done to AmyRose on a brave performance and maybe on another day it would have been a different colour medal.

AmyRose & Lara shine at Tailteann games

Comments Off Uncategorized

Congratulations to AmyRose Farrell who closed out her 2015/16 season with another victory over 3000m in the Tailteann games on Saturday last. AmyRose was in fine form taking up the running over the last 500m and securing the title for Leinster in the provincial competition. She will now go on to represent Ireland in the SIAB T&F Championships in Kent on July 16th.

Lara Gilespie was also taking part and narrowly missed out on a podium finish in a pulsating 800m race but got a well deserved medal when running a fine leg for the victorious girls 4 x 300m relay team.

Both girls played starring roles in helping Leinster retain the Girls provincial team title.

Report by Barry Thornton:

Well done to all 20 children who competed in relays tonight.  Everyone ran well and baton changes were excellent..
We had two girls teams and our A team narrowly missed out on getting into the final by half a second (again!).
We had three boys teams.  Our A and B both qualified for the final and the A team just missed a medal, coming fourth.
