We had a group of athletes representing 3 schools competing at the North Leinster’s on Wednesday and Friday of this week. Still Dominics Cabra were represented by Alison Burke (1st senior hurdles and 2nd in 100m). Emily Corcoran 1st in senior high jump. Emily Murphy 3rd in senior 1500m. In the inter age group Clare Murphy won the 300m hurdles, Dora was 2nd in the 1500m. We had 3 athletes in the inter 800m, Sara Byrne 4th, Ella Mae 5th (Mount Temple ,) and Aoibh Collins (Dominican Griffith ave)6th. This was a very competitive race with Sara and Ella Mae running much faster than in the graded last week.
