Due to government regulations on event capacities, the AAI Games & National CE Championships are closed to all media, coaches, and spectators on both competition days, June 12th & 13th, nevertheless the smaller fields produced many fine performances, with, from a Cork perspective, pride of place going to Bandon AC's Fionn Harrington, who ran a European Under 20 Qualification performance of 8:22.00 in the Men's 3000m.  Cork winners included Liscarroll AC's Aoife O'Sullivan, who won the Women's High Jump, ahead of the much fanciied Summer Lecky.
