Weekend round up: Blackrock athletes impress @ IMC in Irishtown

The T&F season continues in full flow with a host of competitions over the weekend making it a busy few days for athletes and supporters:


Amy Rose Farrell and Sarah Healy were both in action at the IMC on Saturday in Irishtown. Sarah was competing in the 800m A race and notched up yet another fantastic time of 2.09 which is comfortably inside the European Youths standard and a B Standard for the Euro U20’s.

Amy Rose made a welcome return to action and won the 3k in 9.48. It was a great performance given it was her first outing in four months. The race was set up for a sub 9.40 time for a few of the athletes competing (Amy Rose already has the qualifying time for the Euro U20’s with 9.35) but very windy conditions but paid to that. 

Well done to both girls.
