All Ireland Track and Field Championships. Tullamore 15th July, 2012

I was not at the event myself but I received a first hand account from Lisa.  Le Cheile had 2 athletes competing today, Conor Murphy and Conall Hayes.  Unfortunately Conor had a tough day running well below his best but we know he will have better days ahead so keep the head up Conor we are all still very proud of you. 

Conall Hayes turned in yet another Personal Best to claim the silver medal in the Under 15 800m final.  Conall finished in 2:08:18 knocking a full second off his PB which he set only weeks previously in the Leinster Schools Championships in Santry.  So it was a great day for Conall, his family, his coaches and all at Le Cheile, it is great to see our athletes competing and achieving at this level.

Just a quick reminder of the 87th rendition of the Millbrook Cup on Punchestown Racecourse, Sunday 22nd April at 3.00 pm.
This is a handicap - each runner is allocated a projected time based on past performance, slowest off first - so everybody has a chance of victory. The race is over 3 laps of the steeplechase course (without the jumps), and while all Kildare athletes are welcome, it is not recommended for outright beginners.
Prizes for first 3, First Veteran outside first 3, First woman outside first 3 (if the entry warrants the award), and fastest time. Entries to by Wednesday 18th April, the fee (€5) can be paid on the day.
