Six of the athletes who competed on the new track at the first leg of the Senior county championships, held last week, have since been announced on Irish teams for international championships!

Michael Bowler is one of three Irish athletes called up to compete in the European Cup combined events.

David McDonald is off to the schools international in Scotland (sprints), and Chloe Whelan also makes the trip to Scotland in a couple of weeks (300m hurdles).

Sophie McCabe (triple jump) is also on the panel for the schools international in Scotland.
