Weekend Results

D.S.D athletes were in action at the National Indoor League, Athlone and at the Northern Ireland International Cross Country in Belfast at the weekend, with positive results from a competitive point of view. Our Cross Country Coach, Donal Hennigan, was manager of the U.20/23 Irish teams, which was well earned following a successful D.S.D. season at Junior U.20 and Senior levels. Our Senior Men’s team has qualified for the European Club Finals in Portugal in February and will be led by National Championship winner Hiko Tonosa. Hiko finished 2nd in Lyon, France in 7.56.24 on Saturday and won the 3,000m at the National Indoor League, on Sunday in 7.55.61.

D.S.D. Women’s Team finished 1st in Athlone with the Men’ Team in 4th place. Kate Doherty continued on her winning ways with a great 60m hurdles win, and also notching up points for the Women’s Team was Molly Hourihan, winner of the 400m. (Separate report to follow).

Congratulations to Emma McEvoy, on her 3rd place finish in Belfast, where she led the Irish team to Bronze medals. This follows upon her 24th placing in the European U.20 Cross Country Championships in Abbotstown. Emma is less that one year in the sport and has two more years in this age group. Emmet Jennings had one of his best performances at International level, finishing strong in 10th position, in a great International field. Paul O’Donnell was also in the lead group, until a back injury halted his progress, he finished in 25th position. Meghan Ryan was also in the National vest and ran her usual solid race to finish in 16th place, in a top class International field.

Georgie Hartigan was happy to open her season with a 3rd place finish at the World Athletics Indoor Tour, clocking 4.14 for 1500m.

At the National U.15 Pentathlon Championships Daniel Conway finished in 3rd place to take the bronze medal.

Well done to all our athletes and coaches!
