Wins for Clonliffe at Spring throws

The national spring throws took place in far from ideal weather conditions in Tullamore this afternoon. Cold rain is not conducive to bringing out the best throws, Clonliffe javelin thrower Grace Casey described the conditions as ‘brutal’. In any event it was a winning season’s opener for Grace who won the javelin with a best of 39.97. Simon Galligan produced a pretty impressive performance in winning the hammer with a best of 60.76, an excellent throw in the circumstances. In the Masters category Frances Mansfield won the W 75 hammer (18.63). Joe Gibbons was 5th M60 javelin (15.73).
