The first two days of the All-Ireland juvenile T&F Championships were held in Tullamore over the weekend. This year we had a total of 25 athletes qualified in over 50 events. Some of the older athletes did not compete as they were either on international duty in Germany or at the Cork City Sports, thus the younger juveniles took up the mantle of representing the club at national level. There has been a notable improvement in the performance of all the juveniles this year with most athletes improving their individual results.
We now look forward to Day 3 of the individual championships on July 24th and the inter-club relays on July 25th. Athletes who want to be considered for relay teams must attend training over the coming weeks and trails will be held to select the fastest four for each team.
