There was a huge turn out from Kenmare and it was one of our best years for a long while with many athletes getting through the heats and quarter finals on Saturday and returning for the semis and finals on Sunday. The sun shone on both days as did our young athletes and we came away with six individual medals, 2 relay medals and 2 certificates for 4th place.
In the National Finals in Athlone on 21st/22nd August Donal O’Sullivan came 3rd in the 100m and the U10 mixed relay team came 4th.
Well done to all who took part, and of course all the supporters – especially those who stayed late on Sunday to see Conor and Sean Daly’s “Dream Team” take gold in the U10 mixed relay!
