LEINSTER SCHOOLS TRACK & FIELD
Huge congratulations to Patrick MacGabhann and Paul O' Donnell of 5th year who competed in the East Leinster Track and Field Championships in Mortom Stadium, Santry last Saturday the 16th of May.
Patrick had a fantastic race in the 1,500m, taking Silver in an impressive time of 4.06.19 min, and securing himself a place in the All Ireland finals.
Paul was up straight after him in the 5,000m and made a very brave decision to take a very fast early lead in the race. He held his lead until the last 1,000m, where he was caught and finished in 4th place with a time of 15.52.27 min. This was very good running by Paul who smashed his PB.
Well done to both students and best of luck to Patrick in the All Ireland's on 30th of May in Tullamore.
