Andrew Takes Leinster Title
Andrew Murphy, Ballyloo, a student in Presentation College, Carlow was an excellent winner of the Leinster Colleges Senior 2000m Steeplechase in Santry on Wednesday last. He will now go on to compete in the National Finals in Tullamore in two weeks time where he aims to improve on his silver medal placing in the same event last year. He also had a fine run on Saturday when he set a new PB of 4 mins 3 seconds for 1500m.
It was a good week for Tinryland athletes with the Tinryland Girls Under 14 team of Kate Morgan, Jennifer Murphy, Stephanie Murphy and Eleanor Purcell taking bronze in the Leinster Relays in Scanlon Park, Kilkenny on Sunday last. Pat Byrne was also 3rd in the Sportsworld 5 Mile Classic in Dublin last week.
