Cathriona Farrell made a very successful debut at the National Senior Indoor Championships which were held in the Odessey Arena in Belfast at the weekend. Cathriona won the title at her ease in the absense of the National senior record holder Deirdre Ryan and can look forward with confidence to next weekend's U20 AAA championships in the UK.

Cathriona was one of 4 Connacht athletes who took National titles in these championships, including GCH's Sean Breathnach in the shot putt, Sligo's Mary Cullen in the 1500m and Leitrim's Laura Reynolds in the 3k Walk.
