Dublin graded no. 3

The latest of the Dublin graded meets to place in a fairly windy Tallaght Stadium tonight. There was a small Clonliffe group out mainly focusing on the 800s, although having said that 1st into the fray was in the 400 the remarkable Edel Maguire who clocked a time of 70.97. In the women’s B1 800 Jenny Johnston ran 2.31.31, Naoise Cullen 2.39.55 and Orla O’Sullivan 2.42.24. In the C race young Hazel Kenny ran a fantastic race patiently sitting on the shoulder of the leader until 90m to go and then unleashing her kick to take a fine win in 2.35.46. In the men’s 800s Jonny Fitzsimons was 5th in race A1 in 2.03.22. Race A3 saw a brilliant battle between another 2 of the young up-and-coming stars JD Kelly and Sean Cronin, with Sean taking the win on the line in a time of 1.57.69 , JD was 3rd in 1.58.50. These graded 800s also doubled as the Dublin Juvenile Championships, however, no results of that championship have been announced.
