Tinryland athlete Dwayne Farrell had a great win in the Borrisoleigh 5 km race in Tipperary last week. Farrell held off the challenge of local favourite Pat Heffernan to win the event with Tommy Payne finishing in 3rd position.
There were some fine performances by Tinryland juvenile athletes at the Ardattin Sports on Sunday last. Peter Morgan was a fine winner of the Boys Under 15 Long Jump with a leap of 5 metres and also won the 100m with Christopher Costello 2nd in both the Boys Under 15 100m and 800m. In the Girls events, Kate Morgan won the Under 14 Long Jump and was 2nd in the 800m, Amanda Cassidy won the Under 15 100m and was 3rd in the Long Jump while Michelle Cummins won the Under 17 100m and was 3rd in the 800m.
Tinryland were also 2nd club which was a great achievement as a large number of athletes were absent for various reasons on the day.
