The All Ireland schools T & F was held in Tullamore on Saturday 4th June in hot, humid conditions . Youghal AC had 4 athletes that qualified for events on the day.

Lesley Cashman (Pobal Scoil na Trionoide ) was the first up, competing in the junior girls 1200m walk. She finished 6th with a PB of 6.22min.

Lauren O Mahony (St. Mary's Midleton) competed in the Senior girls javelin where she finished an unlucky 4th , throwing 32.77m.

Killian Nolan ( CBS Cork) competed in the U16 boys mile. He had a great run( 4.54min) to finish 11th in a very competitive field.

In the senior boys 5000m two athletes made a break from the pack to take an early lead . Fearghal Curtin ( midleton CBS) kept with the pace and worked hard throughout the race to catch the leaders. However the sudden injection of pace in the last 600m was too much and Fearghal finished an unlucky 4th in a very exciting race.
