Unusually warm conditions were part of this years seniors County Track & Field Championship in Castleisland. Despite the heat and other commitments, St. Brendan's AC had a respectable turn out with 5 women and 1 man competing for senior county medals and they didn't disappoint. 
For 4 of the St.Brendan's AC ladies this was the first time representing our club at senior level.
The best performer on the day was Lauren O'Grady winning shot putt, discus and high jump and also getting medal in hammer throw. Great effort in her first event at senior level.
