Two All Ireland titles won – Junior Boys 1500m and Senior Girls Javelin

Congratulations to our club athletes Patricia Curtin, Lauren O’ Mahoney, Fearghal Curtin, Sean Broderick and Ben Daly who did the club and their respective schools proud at the All Ireland Schools Championships at the Tullamore track on Saturday 1st June.

Patricia Curtin won the Senior Girls Javelin title with her best throw of 35.28m. This was a tremendous win for Patricia who seems to be making a recovery from her injury. Lauren O’ Mahoney took third place in the Intermediate Javelin with her throw of 30.86m and Lauren also did well in the Intermediate Shot 8.29m

Fearghal Curtin had a good win in the Junior 1500m and was happy with a PB of 4.12.78. Sean Broderick stumbled at the start of the 80m hurdles which cost him unfortunately in this very competitive final. He had a huge finish in the Junior relay to come from 4th to 3rd down the finishing straight. Ben Daly ran in the 3rd leg of the relay. The day came to good close when Ben and Sean won their Bronze All Ireland relay medals. More photos available at www.youghalac.com/photos
