Michael bowls them over
Enniscorthy athlete Michael Bowler is the recipient of the athlete of the month award for July.
He was captain of the Irish team at the European Combined Events Cup that month in Monzón, Spain. Michael finished fifth out of 27 in his division, breaking through the 7,000 points barrier for the first time.
He also won silver in the pole vault at the national track and field championships. Michael's dad, John, accepted the award on his behalf as Michael is busy studying for his Masters in Physiotherapy in Birmingham.
