Conor Sheeran U12 60m in his heat he ran strongly and focused but finished just outside the qualifiers.
Peter Kilgannon U14 80m Silver medalist with a powerful run.
Saorlaith Delanty ran well in the heat of the U13 60m but was just outside the first 3 qualifiers.
Abraham Zaidan U18 5th in heat good learning experience, also 5th in the 400m a good performance from Abraham as it would not be a distance he trains for.
Eamon Wallace U18 won his heat and finished a very close to win Silver in the final. Good strong run just couldn't make it up from a poor start
Neil Finnegan Bronze medalist in strong Senior race
Peter Doherty Double Gold for this Master in both 100m and 400m
Hannah Talbot U12 Ball Throw Gold medalist with some fine throwing into a strong gusty wind.
Orla Byrne U10 ran strongly in this her first outing at 500m finishing well up the field.
Fergal Kilgannon U11 600m great strong run over the distance finishing in the top 10.
Tomás Brady U11 600m ran well, trailing with 200m to go he dug deep and sprinted the last 100m passing 7 on the finishing straight
Hannah Talbot 600m first outing at this distance and she ran very well finishing in top 10.
Ella Healy U9 fine run to win Silver in the 60m at this her first competition. Well done.
Tom Kilgannon Silver in the U9 Ball Throw again this was his first competition, excellent result.
Phillip Marron U14 6th in the 1500m good strong controlled run from Phillip as he's just getting back into training
Tomás Whitty strong steady run from Tomás finishing 7th in U16 1500m

Feed back from Lily Murray's Dad,
"Lily finished 4th in her 60m heat and missed a place in the final by a yard or so having made up some ground in the 2nd half of the race. She also took part in her first long jump competition and managed to jump further with each attempt although she wasn't close to a medal. She thoroughly enjoyed the experience."

This is not an exhaustive list and would welcome any extra results/reports or corrections to add to this. Please email me on
