Double All Ireland Gold for Eamon Wallace

Eamon Wallace completed a terrific double last Saturday in Tullamore winning the boys U 19 200m, adding this title to his 100m National title that he won two weeks ago. In very windy conditions Eamon ran a time of 22.5s winning the race comfortably. This rounds off an excellent season for Eamon and we wish him the best of luck in his Athletics scholarship application to DCU and leaving Cert results which will be out in August. Abraham Zaidan just missed out on making the 200m final, running a time of 24.3s, which was outside his seasons best. Abraham has made significant progress this year performing well ahead of his targets.

We had no luck with the Inter club and County relays, the boys U19 4 x 100m team consisting of Eamon Wallace, Brian O’ Connor, Abraham Zaidan and Joey Wallace finished 5th in a time of 46.5, and the 4 x 400m team consisting of Brian O’ Connor, Tom Gannon, Eamon Wallace and Abraham Zaidan finished 4th in a time of 3:48.5. The U19 Boys 4 x 100m County relay team consisting of Niall Flanagan- Cushinstown, Joey Wallace, Eamon Wallace & Abraham Zaidan had a real chance of a medal, but were unfortunately disqualified for a zone infringement.
