It was an under-strength team which made its way to the first round of the national league at the Mary Peters Track in Belfast. A total of seven men competed for us in the Premier Division. Jack Manning was in big demand covering the 400m, Discus, 56lbs and 4x100m relay. Brendan Hyland made an excellent mark with victories in the Shot and Javelin. Callan Byrne covered the 100m and 200m. James Kearney placed second in the steeplechase as did Nicholas Dunphy in the Walk. Rory McGabhann in the high jump and Rory Lodge in the 800m completed the team scoring. Finishing with 65 points at the bottom of the table will require a more complete effort in round two. Otherwise, it will be returning to Division one.
