Youghal AC had four athletes in action at the All Ireland B Track and Field Championships in Tullamore on Saturday 12th July. They won 7 medals which was tremendous.

Kerrie Barrett got off to a flying start by coming third in the G/13 Shot Putt with her best throw of 6.82m. She won heat two in the 600m race in a time of 1.50 which is a PB for her. The first and second placings came from heat one and Kerrie was placed third. Jake McCarthy came 2nd in the B/14 High Jump 1.25m. He was unlucky in the 800m; he came 4th in a time of 2.26.88. Brid McCarthy competing in her first All Ireland had a great race in the G/16 100m to come 2nd in a time of 13.97. She came 3rd in the Long Jump 3.88m. Liam McCarthy was outstanding in the B/15 100m which he won in a time of 12.59. He also won the Shot Putt. Well done to these athletes and hopefully will see more of these at future Championships.
