Thanks to our long serving Ballina based member Ronnie Naylor for these results. He says it was a difficult evening for the event with the Irish /Italy match and the visit of US Vice President Joe Biden to the town.
Good luck to Declan Owens in the Irish Senior Athletics Championships which take place at Santry Stadium over the weekend. He runs in the 100 and 200 metres. Also to Hugh Armstrong (Ballina AC) who runs in what looks like a strong field listed for the 10,000 metres.
