May 24, 2007 [Noel Guiden/Brian McDoanld] From last night`s Dublin County Board Graded Meeting comes the great news that Clonliffe`s Eoin McDonnell has achieved the Qualifying time for July`s European Youths Olympics to be held in Belgrade. Eoin ran a perfectly judged race in last night`s 800M in Irishtown, he was always at the sharp end of the field, taking the bell in 57 seconds, running strongly over the back straight on the second lap and holding off his challengers down the home straight to win in 1.55.19. Athletics Ireland will be selecting the team of 12 for Belgrade after the All-Ireland Schools Championships in Tullamore on June 2nd.
