Lauren O’ Grady, Darragh Courtney and Aaron Malik were all in action for day 2 & 3 of the National Championships in Tullamore.  Lauren was competing in the hammer whilst Darragh was competing in the triple jump & 250m hurdles and Aaron was in the javelin and 250m hurdles.  Lauren narrowly missed out on a medal in the u17 hammer placing 4th, however she achieved a pb of 33.73m.  Both Darragh & Aaron made the finals in the 250m hurdles & although they ran a great race they were unlucky not to medal.  Aaron was just out of the medals in the javelin too despite having a great competition.  But congratulations to Darragh who came 3rd in his maiden voyage in the triple jump with a jump of 11.46m.  Well done to all athletes involved over the three days of competition.  They can look forward to a well-deserved rest now after the year of competition.
