Records for Kelly, Bermingham and Drumgoole

There were some great performances by Raheny athlete’s at the AAI Games, with three club indoor records broken. Kieran Kelly was first up in the 800m, running 1:48:82 to finish second with a new pb and breaking Brian Peppards long standing indoor record. Eoin Strutt, running in the same race, ran 1:55:70. Aisling Drumgoole was up next in the 400m. Aisling finished 3rd in 57:37, bettering her own indoor record. In the 60m Colm Bourke ran 7:33 and 7:34. Last up on the track in the 1500m was Daire Bermingham. Daire went out with the early pace setters and finished third in 3:52:28 for the club 1500m record.

The men’s finished in 5th position at the final of the National Indoor League yesterday, 1 point off a bronze medal. Well done to all those who took part in both rounds and the final. Colm Bourke was our only winner on the day in the long jump in 6.95m; he later went on to finish 5th in the 60m with 7:23. Eoin Strutt,  was second in the 800m with 1:58.09 and was unlucky not to take full points. Conor Bermingham was 2nd in the pole vault (4.10m) and 4th in the triple jump with 11.84m. Brion Hoban was 5th in the shot putt with a new club indoor record of 10.66m. Daniel Scully finished 4th in the 400m with 52.70 and Mark Smyth had an impressive 200m, finishing 5th in 23:10. Adam Foley finished 7th in the 1500m in 4.37 and our 4x200m relay team finished 6th in 1:37:99.
