Thomastown also qualified for the all Ireland club relays in the girls U-11 but weren’t in the medals. The team was Aine Kirwan, Orla O’Keeffe, Ellen Ryan and Ciara O’Keeffe.

KCH U-9 girls, Emma Manogue, Caoimhe Carroll, Fiona Dillon and Margaret Mary O’Shea, were in Cork on Saturday for the national pairs finals. Emma and Caoimhe ran well to finish 8th in the 60m while Fiona and Margaret Mary placed 7th in the final of the Ball Throw. All four girls then combined to compete in the 4x100m Inter Club relays. Good running and good baton changes brought success as the team finished third bringing these young athletes their first All-Ireland medals with the club.
