Craig Lynch makes his individual debut at this level and ran a personal best of 46.40 to finish second at the recent national championships. He is coached by Jeremy Lyons and is a secondary school science teacher. Lynch has formed the backbone of relay teams in recent years having stepped up from the 100m and 200m.

David Gillick, the Irish record holder with 44.77, has made an excellent return to competitive action and has been guided by Athletics Ireland Regional Development Officer Daniel Kilgallon in Tallaght. Gillick will be looking to use his experience and guide the relay team to more success and an Olympic berth.

He has just been returning to action from injury and made his outdoor competitive debut at the national championships – winning his fifth national title.

Paul Byrne made the move down to Limerick to train with Barr and it has paid dividends. Byrne has a personal best of 50.72 seconds and set a national 300m hurdles best of 36.88 back in 2014. He competed in the European U23 Championships in 2011 and makes his senior debut in Amsterdam.

Tomas Cotter (Dunleer) makes his senior championship debut in the 3,000m steeplechase at 16:55. The Louth man has been based in the United States the last number of years and made an NCAA final for Wichita State University. He is guided by long-time coach David Carrie who has made a major impact in Dunleer guiding hundreds of runners across the line in the Dublin Marathon.  

Claire Mooney (Naas) and Sinead Denny (DSD) go in the 400m at 12:10 Irish time having had excellent seasons to date. Womens 400m Startlist

Mooney has returned from St John’s University in New York where she has had a breakthrough season clocking 53.17 seconds for the one lap distance.
Sinead Denny has been going from strength to strength over the last number of years and is coached by Paul Opperman who was on the men’s 4x400m relay team at the Sydney Olympics in 2000.   

Siofra Cleirigh Buttner (DSD) is another to have had an excellent season making the NCAA championships with Villanova and dominating the national 800m – she has a personal best of 2:02.37. Womens 800m Startlist

Cleirigh Buttner, who runs at 17:25, had an exceptional schools career for Colaiste Iosagain where she was unbeaten for six years. She is coached by Gina Procaccio in Villanova who ran with Sonia O’Sullivan during her time there as an athlete.

Athletics Ireland Release - Sat July 2nd

Louise Shanahan Finishing Junior Women's 800m

There were a number of fine performances despite adverse weather conditions at the GloHealth National Junior and U23 Track and Field Championships in Tullamore today (July 2nd).

A number of athletes were looking to seal selection for the European Youth Championships and World Junior Athletics Championships with national medals up for grabs.

For full results:

Michaela Walsh (Swinford) impressed in the throws once more with a double in the Junior Women’s shot put and hammer. Walsh sent the shot out 15.06m and the hammer out to 55.85m.

In the sprints Sean Lawlor (Donore Harriers) won the Junior Men’s 100m (+0.3) in 10.85 seconds from Tallaght’s Joseph Ojewumi in 10.94 and Eoin Doherty in 10.98.

Molly Scott (SLOT) edged Ciara Neville (Emerald) an exciting Junior Women’s 100m (-1.9) in 12.02 to 12.05.

Sharlene Mawdsley (Newport) winning streak continued in the Junior Women’s 200m (-1.3) with a time of 24.04 seconds ahead of Elizabeth Morland (Cushinstown) in 24.44 and Ciara Neville in 25.02. Morland won the Junior high jump earlier in the day with a best of 1.71m.

Ryan Carthy Walshe (Adamstown) won the Junior high jump with 2.05m while Jaime Murtagh (Cushinstown) won the U23 section with 2.08m

Jenna Bromell (Emerald) and Mollie O’Reilly (DSD) did battle in the Junior Women’s 400m with Bromell getting the win in 54.26 seconds – O’Reilly finished second in 55.52, just outside a second World Junior B qualifier.

The Junior Women’s 800m proved to be a tactical affair with Louise Shanahan (Leevale) getting the better of Carla Sweeney (WSAF) and Rose Finnegan (Bohermeen) in a finishing kick. Shanahan won in 2:17.64 with Sweeney clocking 2:18.21 and Finnegan recording 2:18.97.

Amy O’Donoghue (Emerald) impressed in the U23 women’s 800m with a front-running victory in 2:10.90.

Callum Crawford Walker (Annadale Striders) had the edge in the Junior Men’s 800m winning in 1:58.09 while Harry Purcell (Trim) just held off Conall Kirk in the U23 section after going through the first lap in a swift 51 seconds. Purcell tied up badly but won in 1:52.10 ahead of Kirk in 1:52.27.

Emma O’Brien (Sli Cualann A.C.) was a convincing winner of the Junior Women’s 1500m with 4:38.09. William Crowe (North Sligo) held on for the win in the Junior Men’s 1500m in 3:59.88 from Jack O’Leary (Mullingar Harriers) in 4:00.17 and Pierre Murchan (DCH) in 4:02.09.

In the Junior Men’s shot put Anu Awonusi (SLOT) returned to form with a best of 16.89m while John Kelly (Finn Valley) won the U23 section with 15.67m.

Owen Russell (St. Andrew’s) won a great tussle against Adam King (Iveragh) in the Junior Men’s  hammer. Russell won with a best of 70.33m ahead of King’s 69.50m – both men are bound for the World Junior Championships in Poland later this month.

Shane Howard (Bandon) backed up his National Senior medal by winning the U23 men’s long jump with 7.32m and Sarah McCarthy (Mid Sutton) won the U23 women’s long jump with 5.68m in what were bad conditions for jumping.

Saragh Buggy (St Abban’s) added the U23 women’s triple jump to her National Senior title with a best of 12.39m while Ellen McCartney (City of Lisburn) won the Junior Women’s pole vault with 3.40m.

Athletics Ireland Garda Vetting update

Athletics Releand Child Welfare Logo

Athletics Ireland Vetting Policy
Athletics Ireland Child Welfare Facebook page

Athletics Ireland is commencing eVetting with the National Vetting Bureau of an Garda Síochána, on Monday July 4th.

eVetting will make processing a vetting application faster, and reduce the administration of the system. The National Vetting Bureau will not accept any more paper vetting applications from Athletics Ireland as it transfers to the eVetting system. All paper applications received to date will be processed and completed, as normal. Please do not sent any more paper vetting applications to Athletics Ireland.

Athletics Ireland has developed a one page eVetting Invitation & ID Validation form that can be downloaded here, or on the link below. This form contains the legal declarations required to send an applicant an eVetting invitation by email. The applicants signature is required to authorise the eVetting process. This is the only form that will be required to be posted to Athletics Ireland to trigger an eVetting invitation.

This is a new way for Athletics Ireland to manage its vetting processes. There have been a number of changes in vetting as a consequence of the Vetting Act, which commenced in April. Athletics Ireland thanks all the Club Children's Officers who coordinated and implemented the required policy changes.

Vetting is now a legal requirement and an important part of our safe recruitment processes along with acceptable references and safeguarding training. Athletics Ireland is confident that the transfer to the eVetting system will be smooth and easier for members to engage with. If any club has any queries about vetting please contact Kieron Stout on 086 2450134, or This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

Podium Presentation and Anthem for Olive Loughnane

Olive Loughnane Berlin 2009 BBC photo

Olive Loughnane is to be presented with her World Championship Gold Medal, from the 12th World Championships, Berlin, in 2009.  The full ceremony, complete with podium presentation and the Irish National Anthem, will take place on Wednesday next, July 6th, in Amsterdam's Olympic Stadium, during the European Athletics Championships.

The presentation is scheduled to take place around 20:00, local time (19:00, Irish time)and will be made by Sebastian Coe, President of the IAAF.  Also being presented with Gold is Norway's Trond Nymark, 50km Racewalk Champion, also from 2009.

Olive Loughnane's IAAF Profile

Olive Loughnane Honours


Olive is being presented with the Gold medal following the banning of Russian Olga Kaniskina for irregularities in her biological passport.  Originally banned by the IAAF, Kaniskina, along with ARAF, the Russian Federation,  appealed the decision to C.A.S., the Court of Arbitration in Sport, however this appeal was rejected by CAS

"Olga Kaniskina

All competitive results obtained by Ms Olga Kaniskina from 15 August 2009 to 15 October 2012 are disqualified."

Media Coverage

It is unclear whether RTE2 will be covering the presentation Live.  While the TV station will be covering much of the Championships on Wednesday, from 10:00am to 18:50pm, when it changes sports, to cover the European Soccer Championships Semi-Final, the presentation is due to take place pretty much around the time of the changeover.

If the presentation is not covered live on RTE, there are plenty of other opportunities to see it live, as per European Athletics Release below

European Athletics is pleased to announce strong broadcast intentions have been received for the Amsterdam 2016 European Athletics Championships.

With just two days to go, broadcasters in at least 32 European countries have already submitted their intentions for the 23rd edition of the championships. In addition, pan-European channel Eurosport plans to show the majority of the championships live across its 54 territories.

According to the latest figures received by European Athletics, there will be more than 900 hours of television coverage over the five days of the championships, including more than 800 hours of live coverage.

"The expected television coverage confirms the value broadcasters attach to a European Athletics Championships held during the Olympic year," said European Athletics President Svein Arne Hansen.

"The number of hours are higher than we expected considering the more compact five-day format instead of six and with no race walks or marathon (half marathon has been added) in the programme."

European Athletics will also stream the event live on homepage with English-language commentary, meaning athletics fans around the world will be able to watch the championships live in their entirety. The live streaming platform is provided in partnership with European Athletics' principal sponsor SPAR.

With the streaming of the individual feeds on platform, fans will also be able to follow the live streaming of specific events in their entirety.

As usual, Live Results will be available at

We also invite fans to follow all the latest news on Twitter @EuroAthletics, Facebook, InstagramYouTube. They can also share reactions via #ECH2016.

GloHealth Junior & U23 Championships 2016 set for Exciting Battles

Athletics Ireland Release - July 1st

The GloHealth National Junior and U23 Track and Field Championships sees Ireland’s best up-and-coming athletes on show in Tullamore tomorrow (July 2nd).

A number of athletes will be looking to seal selection for the European Youth Championships and World Junior Athletics Championships but for the majority it will be about shining on the national stage in the first major competition of July. Link to fixtures for timetable:

In the sprints junior athletes will be aiming to make relay teams. In the junior men’s 100m Tallaght duo Joseph Ojewumi and Eoin Doherty will take on the likes of Sean Lawlor (Donore Harriers) and Cillin Greene (Galway City Harriers).

Among the listed athletes in the junior women’s 100m are Ciara Neville (Emerald), Molly Scott (SLOT) and Janine Boyle (Finn Valley) to name but three of the contenders.

Phil Healy (Bandon), bound for the European Championships next week, is listed in the women’s U23 100m while Kieran Elliot (North Sligo), Eanna Madden (Carrick on Shannon) and Andrew Mellon (North Down/Queens) are among those listed for the U23 100m.

Sharlene Mawdsley (Newport) has been in impressive form this season and she is listed on the junior women’s 200m entries while in the one lap event  Jenna Bromell (Emerald) and Mollie O’Reilly (DSD) are down to compete. O’Reilly will be hoping Bromell can drag her to an all-important second World junior B qualifier.

Elizabeth Morland (Cushinstown)is another to have caught the headlines this season and is listed for a number of events including the junior women’s 200m. Morland won the 100m hurdles at the Cork City Sports and will compete in the Heptathlon at the world juniors in Poland in July.

The junior women’s 800m promises to be an exciting race with Carla Sweeney (WSAF), Rose Finnegan (Bohermeen) and Louise Shanahan (Leevale) among the listed athletes. Sweeney has her spot booked for the world juniors but both Finnegean and Shanahan need another B standard – it is sure to be a fast race.

Aaron McGlynn (Finn Valley) and Kevin McGrath (Bohermeen) are among those listed in a high quality junior men’s 800m with Harry Purcell (Trim) the lead entry in the U23 section.

Michaela Walsh (Swinford) has been in record-breaking form in the shot put with a new national junior record of 15.15m and the national senior silver medallist is red hot favourite for gold. Finn Valley brothers, James and John, will be leading competitors in the respective junior men’s and U23 men’s shot put.

The friendly rivalry between Adam King (Iveragh) and Owen Russell (St. Andrew’s)is set to be rekindled in the junior men’s  hammer. King got the better of Russell at the junior international in Mannheim last weekend but Russell is the national junior record holder with his throw of 71.20m this year.

In the jumps some of the leading contenders will be Keith Marks (Clonliffe Harriers) in the junior men’s long, Shane Howard (Bandon) in the U23s long jump and Sarah McCarthy (Mid Sutton) in the U23 women’s long jump.

Saragh Buggy set a championship best performance of 12.96m in the triple jump at the national seniors last weekend and she will be the favourite in the U23 section.

Action gets underway from 10:30am and there will be extensive coverage on social media.

Athletics Ireland Team Named for European Athletics Championships 2016

European Championships - Athletics Ireland Release

Athletics Ireland are delighted to announce a squad of over 50 athletes including a full set of relay teams for the European Athletics Championships in Amsterdam on July 6-10.

Thomas Barr (Ferrybank), Ciara Mageean (UCD) and Fionnuala McCormack (Kilcoole) are three of the leading names in the large Irish contingent but it may be in the half marathon team race where the main medal chances lie.

Barr has just returned from injury and made his season debut at the GloHealth National Senior Track and Field Championships on the weekend where he triumphed in 50.28 seconds. He will be using the European Championships as another stepping stone to get back into full fitness.

“I improved a lot over the weekend and I need to races to get back to my best,” said Barr who made the semi-final at the Europeans in Zurich in 2014. “I’ll be looking to step up another level at the Europeans.”

Two-time European Cross Country champion Fionnuala McCormack has been training at altitude in Font Romeu and finished 8th at the last Europeans. She will be aiming to place higher this time around having finished an agonising fourth in 2012.  

European 800m bronze medallist Mark English (UCD) has decided not to compete at the championships having just returned from injury. He won his fourth 800m national title on the weekend and will gear his training towards the Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro.

Ciara Mageean will compete over 1500m and is looking forward to having an impact at the championships. “I’m really looking forward to going to the Europeans and getting in the mix,” said Mageean who won a world junior silver medal in 2010.

Full relay teams

 A full quota of relay teams will be sent to the European Championships which High Performance Director Kevin Ankrom is particularly pleased about.

“It’s the first time in our history to have full relay teams at the championships and we’ve been working hard to develop a relay culture,” said Ankrom.

The men’s 4x400m relay team includes two-time European indoor 400m champion David Gillick (DSD) who finished third at the national championships in a pulsating race where six men ran 46 seconds. Brian Gregan (Clonliffe Harriers) won that race and he will be aiming to at least match his semi-final performance at the last Europeans. The men’s 4x400m finished an excellent 5th at the Europeans in 2014.

The men’s half marathon team will be spearheaded by Paul Pollock (Annadale Striders) who finished 14th at the World Half Marathon Championships in 62:46. If he can match that type of performance he would lead a strong Irish challenge for team medals which also includes Mick Clohisey (Raheny Shamrock) and Kevin Seaward (St Malachy’s).  

The team sees an excellent blend of developing athletes such as Siofra Cleirigh Buttner (DSD)in the 800m and Marcus Lawler (SLOT) in the 200m alongside the return of experienced campaigners such as Mary Cullen (North Sligo) in the 5,000m who won a European indoor bronze medal over 3,000m in 2009.

High Performance view – Kevin Ankrom

“I’m very pleased to have selected such a large squad of athletes. We’ve had some injuries with athletes pushing the boat out to reach new levels but they are now coming around. Our best chance of a medal may lie in the men’s half marathon team while we have a good blend of developing athletes and experience."

Gregan delivers in 400m classic as Barr and English return

includes top 3 results

Brian Gregan (Clonliffe Harriers) won a top quality men’s 400m in 46.28 seconds while Thomas Barr (Ferrybank) sealed his sixth 400m hurdles title in 50.28 seconds at an engaging GloHealth National Senior Track and Field Championships in Morton Stadium (June 25-26).

Barr has been battling back to fitness and made his season debut in the heats on Saturday running 52.03 and improved considerably in the final to win his sixth national title.

“All I need is races,” said Barr who confirmed he will run in the European Athletics Championships from July 6-10. The full team will be announced officially tomorrow. “I improved two seconds from the heats to the final and I hope I can keep going that way.” Jason Harvey (Crusaders) finished strongly for silver in 51.30 with Ben Kiely (Ferrybank) nabbing the bronze in 51.47.

Mark English (UCD) bagged his fourth national 800m title in 1:51.48 but will skip the Europeans to work on his fitness for the Olympics. The championships for the Donegal man were a similar scenario to Barr’s. “I’m happy with that and now I’ll get working towards Rio,” said English. Declan Murray (Clonliffe Harriers) was second in 1:51.70 with Karl Griffin (UCD) third in 1:51.83.

Siofra Cleirigh Buttner (DSD) dominated the women’s 800m passing through 400m in 58 seconds to win in 2:04.72 ahead of Louise Shanahan (Leevale) second in 2:10.02 with Alanna Lally (UCD) third in 2:10.28.  

The men’s and women’s 400m races brought the championships to a crescendo. Brian Gregan proved his mettle winning the men’s race in a big season’s best of 46.28 in the final meters. Craig Lynch (Shercock) ran a big personal best in second with 46.40 just holding off a fast finishing David Gillick (DSD) who ran 46.44. The first four men ran a European B standard – Richard Morrissey (Crusaders) ran 46.68 – while six men ran 46 seconds.

Sinead Denny (DSD) showed her battling qualities to win the women’s 400m in 53.64 to hold off Phil Healy (Bandon) in 53.78. Ciara McCallion (Clonliffe Harriers) was third in 54.48.

Jason Smyth (Derry City) and Amy Foster were the fastest over 100m running 10.71 and 11.83 respectively.

Ben Reynolds (North Down) went into the championships in search of a European B qualifier of 13.90 in the 110m Hurdles and he duly delivered winning in 13.89.

Sean Breathnach (Galway City Harriers) bagged three gold medals and one silver in the throws. He won the shot put with 17.34m, the 56lbs weight for height with 4.40m, the 56lbs weight for distance with 7.87m, and silver in the discus with 51.18m. Marco Pons (DMP) won the discus with 53.22m.

Clare Fitzgerald (Tralee Harriers) won double gold in the women’s discus and shot put – she hurled the discus 53.38m and sent the shot out to 15.07m.

Sommer Lecky won the high jump at the Tailteann Games on Saturday and returned to win the senior high jump on Sunday with 1.71m. Jaime Murtagh (Cushinstown) caused a surprise in the men’s high jump winning in 2.10m ahead of Barry Pender (St Abban’s) second with 2.05.  

Michelle Finn (Leevale) impressed in the women’s 3,000m steeplechase to win in 9:46.81 with Kerry O’Flaherty (Newcastle) having to settle for second in 9:58.81 – both are bound for Rio in the chase.

John Travers (Donore Harriers) and Ciara Mageean (UCD) won their respective 1500m in tactical fashion. Travers sprinted to victory in 4:01.19 to hold off Eoin Everard (Kilkenny City Harriers) in 4:01.32.

In the women’s race Mageean bided her time before winning comfortably in 4:24.33 to beat last year’s champion Sara Treacy (Dunboyne) who was second in 4:26.10. The Portaferry woman will now go on to the European Championships.

Alex Wright (Leevale) won the men’s 10,000m race walk in 41:11.7.  

The importance of winning a national championship was highlighted most by Conor Duffy (Glaslough Harriers) and Lily-Ann O’Hora (Dooneen) who jubilantly celebrated after winning the men’s 5,000m in 14:32.85 and the 100m hurdles in 14.36.
