Keith Fallon and Evan McGuire represented Ireland in the Scottish University & College Athletics last weekend.
Keith had a great run and was 5th in the1500m finishing strong after a few weeks nursing an injury and even managed a 50 sec split in the last 400m.
Last weekend’s All Ireland championships in the Athlone Indoor Arena saw some fantastic medal winning performances from Galway City Harriers AC with top billing going to rising young middle distance star Keith Fallon who took gold medals in both the Under 23 800m- in a time of 1.56, and in the 1500m - in 4 minutes flat . Keith took the lead in both races early on, and won from the front in a very impressive display of middle distance running.
