Well done to the Girls U/10 team which included Rion Walsh, Emma Landers, Anna Brenner, Eva Murphy and Robyn Buckley who secured bronze County medals when they came 3rd in a very competitive final. The Boys U/15 team had a very convincing win in their relay. Eoin O’ Brien got off to a flying start handing the baton to Liam McCarthy who has won 2 Sprint medals in the Counties; Ben Daly ran the bend in the third leg and passed the baton to Sean Broderick who had a super last leg. Both of these athletes have also won County sprint medals in previous weeks. This team has qualified for the All Ireland Relay Championships on the 20th July in Tullamore. Well done to all relay teams some of which got out of heats and got to finals. Keep up the training!
