|DSD – defend women’s title|
In the throws, where DSD is weak, Cara Kennedy and Kate Hickey are sure to add to the Ferrybank tally, while Irish heptathlon record holder Mairead Murphy will pick up the slack in a number of events. Still, in the second round of the league in Santry, DSD came out on top comfortably.
Mark Hoey of Star of the Sea and Raheny’s Fiona Roche were the winners of the Dunleer 4-Mile, with impressively large groups turning out from the host club Dunleer, as well as from Drogheda and District and Team Carrie. Even bigger numbers showed up for the Celbridge 5km, where the winners were Rathfarnham’s Paul Fleming and Kerry Harty of Newcastle.
