National Underage/ Masters and Intermediate C/C C/ships
Well done to all our athletes and our fellow Sli Cualann and County athletes who took part in the National Underage/ Masters and Intermediate C/C C/ships, which were held in Avondale on Saturday 8th February. Congratulations to the organising committee and all the volunteers who helped to put on an excellent event. Congratulations to Orla Phillips, who had an excellent run, finishing 2nd in 0/65 category. (Results on AAI website show Orla in wrong category). Ashling Smith added to her evergrowing collection of medals, finishing 3rd in 0/45 category, with Suzanne Foot hot on her heels, finishing 4th in the same category. Our Masters men, Paul O'Brien, Paul Allen, Conor Maher, Bernard Quinn and Richard Kavanagh, all had fine runs. The competition for places in ALL categories was fierce, the first 3 in the 0/65 men were the 2019 0/65 European 5000mtrs champion, 2019 0/65 European 800 and 1500 mtrs champion and 0/65 Irish 10k record holder. We also had a number of juveniles take part, all of whom performed brilliantly. Well done to Elanor, Ella, Eile, Adam, Samuel, Dara and Bobby.
