Youghal AC had 5 athletes in action at the Munster Indoor Championships on 28th February and Ist March in Nenagh. Brid McCarthy competed in the U17 60m and was unlucky not to qualify for the final. Liam McCarthy was 8th in the U16 200m. Simon Upton was 6th in the U16 1500m; this was his first time competing at the Indoors. Lauren O’ Mahoney finished in an unlucky 4th in the U18 Shot with her best throw of 8.39m. She was unlucky as she was coming 3rd until the last round and beaten for the bronze medal by 20cm. Kerrie Barrett had a super run in the U14 800m achieving a big pb of 2.35.88. She was only beaten by a fraction of a second on the Line for the bronze medal. However it is early in the season and this Championship will stand as good experience for these athletes.
