Last weekend we had athletes competing in day 3, 4 and 5 of the Dublin championships in Santry. On Fri night Joe Fogarty finished 4th in the 1500m under 16. Our under 18 boys 4x400m relay team of Sam, Sean, Ian and Rowan finished 2nd. In the under 12 girls relay our team Martha, Bianca, Erin and Aimee won the heat very well. In the final our cracking little team came 2nd but a minor lane infringement meant they were unfortunately disqualified. The girls were very upset but these things happen even in the Olympics. We know and they know how well they ran and there will be plenty more opportunities in the future.
On Sat morning Clare Murphy, Ashley and Ian finished 4th in their 400m races. In the afternoon Sam had a great run in his 200m , he made the final of the Dublins for the first time and came 6th. We had 3 in the under 16 girls 200m final, Antonia was 3rd, Aontoinette 4th and Keelin 7th.
On Sunday Erin and Aoibhinn ran strongly in a very competitive 600m final under 12, Aoife Corcoran finished a very good 6th in the 800m under 14.
On Saturday Dave Gogarty ran a personal best for 5mile in the National 5mile in the Phoenix Park. Well done to everyone and thank you to all the parents for their support.
