Santry played host to the East Leinster T&F qualifiers over the last two days. The competition attracted large crowds on both days with weather conditions bordering on Baltic at stages!! Well done to all involved and a summary below:
Minor Girls & Boys Day 1/2: Congratulations to Emma O’Brien (Mount Anville/80m) and Ellen Cheung (Mount Anville/500m) on securing individual titles on Wednesday.
