All Ireland Schools - Tullamore 31 May 2014

Deirdre Healy had a great win today in the All Ireland schools senior girls 3,000m. Deirdre took the lead from the start and after passing 1600m in 5 mins .20 sec she had opened up a 25m lead over the chasing pack.  She then appeared to go through a tough patch and with a lap to go Aoife Richardson had worked her way back to be within 10m but Deirdre showed all her experience and determination to maintain her lead in a great last lap. Her winning time was 10 min 29 sec - a new PB and club record by over 5 seconds

Aine O'Connor continues to improve with every race and she posted another PB of 5 min 39 sec in the u 16 girls mile when finishing a magnificient seventh, one day after winning the Ratoath schools Fairyhouse run in a new girls record of 10 min 05 sec. At the same event, Philip Marron won the male equivalent in 8 min 37 sec - another course record
