Congratulations to Natasha Rolland (Mt Anville- Junior Discus) and Sarah Healy (Holy Child Killiney- Senior 1500m) on superb individual titles last weekend in Tullamore. Natasha’s performance is well deserved after a lot of hard work in this discipline over the last few weeks whilst Sarah was once again in imperious form breaking Ciara Mageean’s senior record in a performance that saw her take the overall Track Female athlete award. Well done to both girls.

Issy O’Brien (Mt Anville) was part of the 4 x 100m that took gold in the minor girls category whilst Robyn O’Brien (Mt Anville) anchored their team to second place in the 4 x 100m senior girls event.

Bobbi Gilespie (Wesley College- Pole Vault Junior girls) and Beth Sweeney (Sion Hill- High Jump Inter girls) both had solid outings in the field events.
