Golden day at Nationals day 3!

Joseph Fogarty was first into action today in Tullamore for his first National 1500m on the track. Joe didn’t show much signs of inexperience as he powered his way through on the last lap to win a silver medal. Next up Sean Donoghue ran the race of his life knocking over 9 secs off his pb to win his 3rd national gold medal this year. Emily Murphy ran a great new pb of 5mins 7 secs and finished 8th in her 1500m. Daire Finn was unlucky to finish 4th in the under 19 race but he gave it everything and ran a seasons best.

Emily Corcoran got the afternoon session off to a great start with a win and a personal best in the under 17 high jump clearing 1.66 and so, so close to getting 1m69! Next time Emily!!!
To finish off the day in style Alison Burke ran a great 400m hurdles finishing 3rd in a new personal best time. Great day for the club. Well done everyone and thanks to all the parents who supported our young athletes.
