Thomas Barr Wins Seventh Consecutive National Title

Thomas Barr (Ferrybank) was smooth as silk speeding to his seventh consecutive 400m hurdles title at the Irish Life Health National Championships in Morton Stadium today (July 23).

Barr showed he’s over his injury concerns for London taking gold in 49.79 ahead of his training partner Paul Byrne (St Abban’s) in 50.24.

Ciara Mageean (UCD) held off Claire Mooney (Naas) to win the women’s 800m in 2:04.06 to 2:04.23 while Brian Gregan (Clonliffe Harriers) continued his fine form to dominate the men’s 400m in 45.74 seconds.  Cliodhna Manning (Kilkenny City Harriers) scored a surprise victory in the women’s 400m in 53.25 in her first proper outing over the distance.

Mark English (UCD) added another 800m title to his growing collection taking gold in 1:50.89 as he looks to sharpen his preparations for the World Championships.

Sarah Lavin (UCD) won the women’s 100m hurdles in a crisp 13.62 seconds while Gerard O’Donnell (Carrick on Shannon) came back to win the men’s 110m hurdles in 13.92 seconds ahead of Matthew Behan (Crusaders) in 14.09.

Kerry O’Flaherty (Newcastle) won the women’s 3,000m steeplechase in 10:01.40 from Michelle Finn (Leevale) in 10:31.14.

Conor Dooney (Raheny Shamrock) made it a happy household winning the 5,000m in 14:25.60 with his brother Kevin winning the 10,000m the previous day in 29:30.16 – both their first senior titles.

Saragh Buggy (St Abban’s) added the long jump to her triple jump crown with a leap of 5.87m. Ellen McCartney (City of Lisburn) won the pole vault with a best of 3.55m with Thomas Houlihan (West Waterford) beating Michael Bowler (Enniscorthy) in the men’s on countback – both cleared 4.55m.

John Kelly (Finn Valley) won the men’s shot put with a best of 16.46m. Adam McMullen (Crusaders) won a brilliant long jump competition with 7.74m ahead of Colm Bourke (Raheny Shamrock) with 7.46m and Keith Marks (Clonliffe Harriers) who had a best of 7.12m.

Amy Foster (City of Lisburn) was the fastest woman in Ireland once more winning the 100m in 11.43 while Jeremy Phillips (Clonliffe Harriers) ran a nippy 10.39.

Sean Tobin (Clonmel) crowned an excellent couple of weeks to win his first national 1500m title in a tactical 3:53.90. It was also a very successful weekend for Emma Mitchell (Queens) who made it a golden double winning the 1500m in 4:31.55 to add to her 5,000m title.
