It was a great weekend for Dundrum South Dublin A.C in the 123.ie National Indoor Championships, at the N.I.A. Our women’s relay team of Molly Hourihan; Charlotte Bourke; Cara Murphy and Mollie O’Reilly set a new National Club’s 4 x 200m Indoor record, whilst finishing first, in 1.39.86. Elizabeth Ndudi also won Gold in the Long Jump, with a leap of 6.28, and finished 6th in the final of the 60m sprint.
Ciarán Carthy ran a terrific 400m, finishing 2nd with a great new PB of 47.49, and is now looking forward to more good times in the outdoor season.
It was also wonderful to see Amy O’Donoghue take a great 2nd place in the 1500m, in her first time competing for the club.
