Highlights of the 2015 Irish Senior Track & Field Championships

The Irish Senior Track & Field Championships were held in Santry, Dublin last weekend on Sat 8th and Sun 9th August. Despite it being one of the main highlight on the athletics calendar for the year, some of the numbers taking part in some events were very poor, especially the hurdles.

The full results can be seen HERE

The highlights can be seen on the RTE Player Service until the end of August.

These are the various highlights as shown on the programme...

00:55...Womens 400m Hurdles. Very small field.

Persume they are part of Graded league now. If AAI cant get full fields at all events at national level surely Cork would struggle just as bad.
