Silver & Bronze for DSD at National League Final

Our Men’s and Women’s teams were in action yesterday in Tullamore, at the National League Final. Both teams produced great performances with the Women finishing 2nd and Men 3rd. Kate Doherty won the 100m and 100m hurdles, with Molly Hourihan 1st 200m, 2nd 400m and 2nd Long Jump. As well as finishing 3rd in 1500m walk, Ciara Wilson Bowen braved the elements in the Steeple Chase to take 3rd place. Special mention must also go to our long serving Olympian Maria McCambridge, who finished 2nd in the 3,000m and 6th 800m. Paul O’Donnell was the winner of the 5,000m and also placed 3rd in the 1500m. Zak Curran ran a fast 400m but in a very close finish he had to be happy with 3rd place in 47.66. He later ran a great relay leg in the 4x400m moving the team up to 2nd place. In the field events, Padraic White was 2nd in the Hammer and 3rd Weight for Distance.
