Good performances from field eventers at Festival

At Morton Stadium in brilliant weather yesterday several of the club’s athletes took part in the Athletics Ireland Field Events Festival.

Niall Counihan was 2nd in the triple jump (12.49) and Shannon Sheehy 3rd in a quality High Jump as above. Rolus Olusa was 4th in the pole vault (4.20) and young Nicole Lapiy, who is a U/18 athlete, was 6th overall in the women’s pole vault (2.50)
