All the teams ran brilliantly especially as for many this was their first time competing in the Leinster Championships and in the tough 4 x 200m race. Well done to all the athletes and thanks to all the coaches and helpers. The U15 girls team of Ella Barry, Laura Bolster, Isabella Gogan, Roisin McManus and Aoife Rohan ran brilliantly in their heat getting through to the finals where they ran a fantastic race to finish in third place.
