Dublin senior championships

A cold miserable evening greeted our athletes in Santry on Wednesday evening for the senior 100,400 and 1500m races. The high jump had to go indoor as conditions outside were unsafe for jumping. First into action was Catherine McManus in the 100m and she ran really well to win the gold medal. 25 mins later she ran her first 400m of the season and she won that as well in a personal best time. Great running in trying conditions! Caoimhe Lynam had a strong run in her 400, Emily Corcoran came 2nd in the high jump. By the time the 1500m races got under way the rain has stopped and conditions were much improved. Niamh Donnelly took out the pace and made most of the running but got caught by the group on the last lap, herself and Clare Brennan finished together in a sprint finish with Cliona Murphy not far behind. Edel McNamara had her first outing on the track, surprised herself and can’t wait for her next one! Pierre continued his comeback with an impressive 2nd in the men’s 1500. Muireann Mc Ginley had her first please vault competition since she hurt her ankle in early April. All results will be on the Dublin Athletic board website today or tomorrow.
