Conor Duncan 5th in Glohealth AAI Games

Conor Duncan produced another excellent performance today when competing  in the GloHealth AAI games at the Morton Stadium, Santry. Conor hung back off the opening lap of 54 sec to eventually finished 5th in 1 min 57.5 sec behind the very imprssive winner, Harry Purcell. This is yet again another new PB for Conor's and is his third sub 2 mins for the 800m in a matter of weeks. It is just reward for all the tough training sessions he consistently put in over the winter months and with a little bit of luck, there is even better to come from him

Day 2 of Leinster Schools Athletics

Day 2 of the Leinster schools athletics was held in the Morton Stadium, Santry, today. The blustery wind was not condusive to fast times but both Brian Kiernan and Deirdre Healy made light of the demanding conditions.

Brian got off to a slow start in the intermediate boys 400m but finished like the proverbial train to get up for third in a magnificent new PB of 50.96 sec - just 0.14 behind the winner and 0.01 off second. The finish was so tight, nobody was sure who had won until the judges announcement was made.

Deirdre Healy took the field out hard in the senior ladies 1500m and led up to 1100m before Nadia Power put in a blistering last lap to win. Deirdre and Cliona Murphy battled it out all the way down the finishing straight with Deirdre finishing 3rd in 4 min 43.3 sec. Excellent running in the blustery conditions and especially having made all the early pace. It suggests Deirdre will run a very fast time when she moves back up to her favoured 3000m

Philip Marron Takes Leinster Schools Title

Philip Marron was the toast of Ratoath Community College  today when he won the intermediate boys Leinster schools 1500m steeplechase title  at the  Morton Stadium, Santry. Philip just got the better of fellow Meath man Jarlaith Jordan down the home straight to win in a new PB and club record of 4 mins 40.42 sec. This win was all the more impressive considering Philip has only recently returned to training after an injury. Alex Hunter was 5th in the same race in 4 min 55 sec.  Alex  hinself had only resumed training after a short enforced layoff. Ciaran Crowther did his school proud with an excellent 5th place in the 2000m senior steeplechase and improved his personal best to 6 min 46.79 sec. The intermediate girls 1500m s/chase was exceptionally fast from the gun but Aine O Connor gave it everything to finish just outside the medals in 4th place (5 mins 58 sec).

Matthew Buckley just missed out on the gold in the minor boys 100m while Aine Cooney was another to made it to the podium with an excellent third place finish in the junior girls 100m and recording a new pb of 12.67 sec and club record into the bargain.

Darragh Casey was a brilliant third in the minor boys long jump in a new PB of 5.10m and later went on to show his versatility and finish 6th in the 500m, running 1 min 19,7 sec. Karen Hayes improved her 800m by almost 4 seconds when finishing 7th  in 2 min 31 sec. and continues to get better with every race.


 Emma Coroner was fourth in the minor girls long jump with a very consistent series culminating in a best of 4.61m
