Congratulations to Michaela Marnell who secured a double victory at the Masters All Ireland Championships in Tullamore yesterday.

Michaela was competing in the M1 category and battled the horrendous weather conditions to take the 100m and 200m National titles and in doing so making it a clean sweep of honours both indoors and outdoors this year.

Well done Michaela.
