Congrats to club athlete Holly O’Brien who was in outstanding form over the weekend in the All Irl U13 2500m at Dunboyne, Co Meath. Having only finished in 8th place in the Dublin County Final back in October, Holly’s hard work over the last few weeks paid rich dividends with a 10th place finish in the race and third Dublin athlete home.
In what were typical XC underfoot conditions, Holly was in the lead group from the start and stayed in touch throughout with a great performance. She was also part of the Dublin team that won County Team Gold and Province Team bronze..
This caps off another fine year for Holly, having represented the club in three National Competitions, and keeping a great club tradition of underage middle distance top 10’s on the National stage.
She also had the added bonus of been recognised as the Club’s Juvenile athlete of the year for 2019.
A great way to round off 2019. Well done Holly.
