Nothing like getting into a different training environment well done Dermot .
Sunday night would you believe a crowd estimated at somewhere near 400 turned up to celebrate the underage athletes that had won national medals in the previous years.

Special mention went to Dempsey Mc Guigan who qualified for the European juniors and James Speight Irish schools champion, steeple plus  record breakers Dalton and Fellan Mc Guigan,James and John Kelly and to international representatives in addition such as Jade Leeper,Blaithnaid Patton and Shaun Woods .
