Big Weekend in Store for Leevale Athletes

There is a big weekend in store for Leevale athletes at home and abroad.

The National Senior T&F Championships take place in Santry this weekend. This is the highlight of the year for most senior athletes and this year’s meet is really shaping up to be a classic.

Among the Leevale athletes is Ciarán Ó Lionáird who has just returned from the US, and is showing form just in time for the European Championships. Ciarán achieved the qualifying standard on Wednesday evening in Watford and he is out to secure selection with performance in the 1500m on Sunday.

Luke Hickey & Alex Wright return from a summer of training in Spain to compete in the walk.

In the meantime Jack Murphy, Andre Christie & Luke Horgan travel to Cardiff as part of the Irish Team who will compete at the International Schools over the weekend.
