More Medals and Close Shaves at National Finals

Sinead Treacy, Silver Medallist in the U17 Girls 200m

Sineád Treacy completed a hat-trick of National medals from the National finals hen adding a silver medal in the 200m in a blistering time of 25.64. This brings her haul to 3 when added to the 2 bronze medals she won a week ago in 100m and long jump.

Damien O’Boyle continued his fine weekend with a silver medal in the U17 1500m in a time of 4.11.15 – I’m losing count of the number of National medals that he was won this year!



Both Oisin Lyons and Neil Greaney went agonisingly close to the medals when taking 4th place in their 1500m – Oisin running an impressive 4.42.8 which is the fastest U14 time ever run in the club and Neil racing to a time of 4.07.65 just 1 second outside the club senior record.


A similar fate of 4th placed lay wait for Tara McNally in the U16 200m where she had her best run of the season when recording 26.33 to finish just outside the medals while Conor Duggan had a breath-taking run of 23.36 in the U17 200m to place 4th by just 0.07 seconds.


Also on the track Nicholas Sheehan placed 7th in the U18 1500m in a time of 4.16.46 on his first attempt at the distance while Dearbhaile Walsh placed 11th in the 1500m in 5.21.92. Michelle Duggan made the U14 200m final but had to withdraw due to a back injury.


In the field events, Cathal O’Brien heaved the shot putt to 11.02m to take 5th place in the U16 boys grade while brother Mark placed 12th in the U14 discus with 16.06m. Ellen Fitzpatrick took 7th place in the U17 javelin with 19.26m. In the U18 long jump Claire Ryder placed 8th in the girls event with a leap of 4.68m, struggling to get her mark in windy conditions while Aaron McDonnell leaped to an impressive 5.24m in the boys event in his first season of track & field since returning to athletics. Alison Leahy placed 16th in the U13 long jump with a leap of 3.95m.
