Tomás Keehan became the club's first male athlete to represent Ireland when he competed as part of the Irish Schools U16 team in the Celtic Schools International in Cardiff at the weekend. This is an annual competition between Ireland, Wales and Scotland. Tomás who is a student in Gort Community School jumped 1.60m to claim 4th place in the high jump. Well done Tomás!
Tomás joins Ann Loughnane and Cathriona Farrell as the club's small group of athletes who have had the honour of representing their country. This group will almost certainly grow significantly in the next few years such is the talent that is coming through the juvenile ranks of the club.
The club are immensely proud of its athletes as they break through onto National squads. Hopefully for Tomás, this is the first of many international appearances!
