Congratulations to Tommy O’Brien (Blackrock College/ Leisnter) when earlier today at Santry he secured a fine second place finish in the 100m hurdles and in doing so also ran a PB of 13.73 secs. Tommy continues his fine form on the track in 2014 and today’s performance was a fitting reward for him at this very prestigous event.

Dublin Uneven Relay championships- Title for Girls U13 squad

Comments Off on Dublin Uneven Relay championships- Title for Girls U13 squad Uncategorized

We had a low key turn out on Friday night with only two teams taking part namely the Girls & Boys U13 squads.

Congrats to the Girls team who took the Dublin title. It’s been a very busy few weeks for Emma O’Brien, Ellen Cheung, Laura Gallagher and Kristina O’Connor. The girls will now go on to represent the club at the Nationals in Tullamore in July. Well done to you all.

The boys U13 team came fourth in the final after a great tussle on the final leg. Cianan Martin, Evan Walshe, Flinn Storan and Pappy Tucker were the quartet. Hard luck to the lads for narrowly missing out and a speedy recovery to Pappy who picked up an injury on the night.
