The Irish Schools season is ramping up and Kelly-Ann Doyle was the standout from the provincials with a Euro B Standard (61.22) in the Munsters in Cork. Earlier in the week, Matthew Behan ran a blistering 13.79 but no wind reading will rule it out for record or PB purposes. Garbhan McKenna ran another Euro B Standard of 14.28 in Loughborough and that should book his ticket to Sweden. Megan Marrs debuted for Great Britain in Loughborough, finishing 2nd in 14.31.
Also in Loughborough, Ben Reynolds won the first of the Ben&Gerry challenge when clocking 13.91 to Gerard O' Donnell's 14.10 (PB). Nessa Milllet was on target for a big win in the 400H but clipped the last and lost huge momentum but recovered to claim 3rd in 61.81. Christine McMahon suffered her 2nd bizarre DQ for hooking this season, despite being a left leg lead on the bend!! Jason Harvey and Paul Byrne were slightly off form over 400H at the same meet.
Finally, Santry saw the GloHealth AI Games on Sunday. Simon Taggart made his comeback to take the men's in 15.03 while Elizabeth Morland ran a 13.80 into a -1.9 wind.
