Great Experience at the 2022 National Indoor Competitions

It was another stellar performance by Blackrock A.C. at the 2022 National Indoor competitions. On the final day, there was a Gold medal for the U18 boys Relay team – Robert, Killian, Conn and Donal.

Alongside Mark and Rory, these young men have been training for this event for 4 years and never gave up on their quest to nail this title despite the setbacks of injury and Covid restrictions.
