Congratulations to David Purcell who took a fine silver medal at the All Ireland Juvenile Indoor Championship last weekend in AIT. David was against very strong competition in the U13 60mH but put together two fine sprints to secure a well deserved second place overall. Well done to David.
Holly O’Brien also had a great outing, running a fine time in her heat/ U12 600m to easily qualify for the final where she finished 5th overall. Jack Moraghan was very unlucky, failing to make the 800m U18 final by one place finishing seventh fastest (top 6 made final). Well done to both athletes.
The previous weekend, Ella Cowman in the girls U15 1.5K Walk, produced an outstanding display finishing 5th overall (in only her second race at this discipline). Rachel Kiely also performed well in this race whilst Abbie O’Connor (U12) and Anna McCarthy(U15) did well in the Shot Putt.
Congrats to the athletes and next up are the Relay finals on April 7th.
