Leinster Schools Track & Field Day 1

After the regional qualifiers the GloHealth Leinster Finals took place in a showery Morton Stadium this afternoon, with day 2 on Staurday. On offer were places in the All Ireland Schools Finals in Tullamore in June, plus of course coveted Leinster Schools medals. In action today were some of the top up and coming young Clonliffe athletes with fine performances in particular from Holly Roche who took silver in the minor girls 500. Silver also in the minor boys 1100 by Colin Sweeney with Daragh Carter also running a very strong race in 5th. Sean Carrig successfully negotiated the barriers in the senior boys 2000 sc placing a comfortable 3rd. 3rd also for Craig Giles in a very bumpy boys U/16 mile.
