Some fantastic performances this year have seen 9 junior records and 6 senior records fall in the last few months. Well done done everyone and well done also to all who took part in the indoors and broke or came close to setting new PBs. Following are the record breakers!
- Claire Ryder, 8.44s in the 60m sprint which claims both the junior and senior record and breaks the old record of 8.50 set by Cathriona Farrell in 2005.
- Rachel Finnegan, 10.02s in the 60m hurdles which is a new junior record breaking the mark of 10.76 held by older sister Sarah.
- Linda Porter, 4.59.94 in the 1500m which again is both a junior and senior record – breaking her own previous mark of 5.07.56 set in 2009.
- Tomas Keehan, 25.11 in the 200m at the Connacht Indoors to set a new junior record – one that he may threaten again in a weeks time in the National indoors, and 1.75m in the high jump to set both a junior and senior record breaking the old senior record of 1.74 held by William Finnegan.
- Peadar Harvey, who has broken the junior records for 800m, 1500m and 3000m this year so far with times of 2.13.2 in the Connacht 800m, 4.17.41 in the National 1500m and 9.10.8 in the National Indoors Relay 3000m – with the 1500m and 3000m also claiming the senior records. Mark's senior record of 2.08.22 looks like it will come under serious threat from Peadar the weekend after next!
- The 4x200m relay team of Tomas Keehan, Peadar Harvey, Niall Rooney and David Farrell who ran 1.43.0 at the National Indoors Relays earlier this year to break both the junior and senior records.
