  • Jarred Wait 4th Hammer
  • Brian Donnelly 4th HJ

These boys missed qualifying for the Irish by one place with the top 3 going through.

Robbie Marrs won the Intermediate HJ clearing a height of 1.89m and will be a strong contender for the Irish title that he won in this age group last year. He was also just beaten on the line in the 100m Hurdles into 2nd place but has still qualified for both events.

Jack McComb won the Senior Boys 400m Hurdles, easing to victory in the home straight. After having completed his 400mH and a 400m semi-final he just didn’t have the energy in the last 10 metres of the 400m Final and finished 3rd, narrowly missing out on qualifying for the Irish.
