Congratulations to Tony Kelleher (formerly of Minor Row) now based in Cork and runing for Togher AC, who last weekend became the Irish over-40 800m champion in a personal best time of 2:02:33. A fabulous achievement no doubt.
While looking at the Irish Masters Athletic Association website, I noticed that our own Willie Neenan is still the national record holder for the mens over 65s at 800m and 1500m with times of 2.32.12 and 5.08.87, which were both set in September 1998 in Italy.
There are lots of photos of the Irish Masters Athletics Championships on flickr. View the full results of the days athletics.
