Post date: Oct 04, 2013 12:52:13 AM

Youghal AC had an U/15 boys relay team in action at the All Irelands on 20th July. They came 4th in the heat and had a massive performance in a very fast and close final to finish in 5th place in a time of 50.59. Liam McCarthy also competed in the U/14 200m heat and narrowly missed out by a fraction of a second for the final; nevertheless a very good performance especially as this was Liam’s first time competing at such a level.

Fearghal Curtin won silver medals in both the B/16 3000m 9.32.02 on 7th July and 1500m 4.16.19 on 21st July. He suffered from heat exhaustion in the final 100m of the 3000m as temperatures were extremely high on the day. Jennifer Hennessy also competed well in the G/16 800m. Unfortunately Lauren O’ Mahoney had to pull out of the All Irelands as she suffered a fractured thumb.
