European Championships

Le Cheile athlete David McCarthy has been officially named on the Irish team for the European Championships later this month. David will be competing in the 800m but has also been named on the 4x100m relay squad. David has represented his club and his country on the international stage many times before and no doubt he will take this oppertunity in his stride. This event displays the strength of Kildare athletes as we will also see Newbridge's Roseanne Galligan in the 800m and Claire Brady from Celbridge in the 4x100m women's relay. Congratulations to David, Roseanne and Claire on qualification and best of luck to them all in the championships.

The European Championships take place in the Olympic Stadium in Barcelona from the 27th July to the 1st August. For more information click here
