Athletics Ireland Preview

Busy Day 1 (Times listed are Irish time)

Niamh Fogarty (Raheny Shamrock AC) will be first in action for the Irish with the Women’s Discus set to start at 7.45am (Group A). Fogarty comes into the championships in flying form having secured the national senior title recently with a 53.73 PB throw.

Heptathlete Kate O’Connor is going to have a busy start to her championships, with the Dundalk St. Gerard's star starting proceedings in the 100mH from 9.10am before setting sights on the High Jump, Shot Put, and 200m later in the day.

O'Connor returns to European Championship action with joyful memories having won a historic heptathlon silver at the European Under-20 Athletics Championships in Sweden in 2019. It was the first time Ireland medalled in the heptathlon at any level.

O'Connor picked up in 2021 where she had left off the previous year and smashed the Irish Heptathlon record (6297 points) to take second at the Multistars World Athletics Combined Events Challenge in Italy last April.

Much like O’Connor’s action-packed schedule on Day 1, the Irish will be competing thick and fast right throughout the day.  

Aoife Lynch (Donore Harriers), Gina Akpe-Moses (Blackrock AC), and Molly Scott (SLOT) will all be looking to make their way safely through the tricky 100m heats from 10.00am. The semi-finals are scheduled for later in the evening (6.15pm).

Jack Mitchell (SLOT) is set to take to the track in the 400m Hurdles from 10.55am. Mitchell has been in tremendous form over recent weeks and will be looking to carry that national championship momentum into tomorrow's heats.

Sean Mockler (Moycarkey Coolcroo AC) is in qualifying action for the Men’s Hammer 11.55am (Group B)

The evening session will see Charlie O’Donovan (Leevale AC) looking to book his place in Saturday s 1500m final. The Leevale AC athlete is set to go in the heats from 3.35pm Irish time
