We were lucky to have some age groups in the Munster Championships held in Castleisland this year so were able to take small numbers of athletes over to take part. Mainly to see if we were anywhere near the required standard yet. U9, 10 and 11 is a team event with times, distances etc combined for a final score.
On Sunday 6th, Joan O’Sullivan took Cian O’Sullivan and James McCarthy to run in the U10 60m. Unfortunately I don’t have an overall placing for them as yet.
On Sunday 13th, Tessa Dennison took 4 U10 girls to compete as 2 teams and also to run the 4 x 100m relay. In the U10 60m Elinor Dennison and Cara Daly took 12th place overall, with Elinor running the 7th fastest qualifying time in Munster. Cara and Elinor then took 9th place in the long jump while Ellen O’Sullivan and Caitlyn Moriarty were 8th in the ball throw. Clodagh Quinlan was 9th in the U14 800m. Great achievements all round for our first outing at this event and we hope to have many more teams competing in 2011.
