Athletics Ireland
"It was Darragh McElhinney who sparkled most in the heat of the Julie Rose Stadium. He epitomised the spirit of the schools team, in a sensational race. The pace was 2:24 at 800m, followed by a 59 second lap to 1200m, and then a 43 second last 300m. He went to front with 600m to go, with four runners going at it over the last 50m, but McElhinney prevailed in 4:07.15."
