Craig Giles ran a phenomenal race today and placed 2nd in the All-Ireland’s!! He competed in the U16 mile and ran a great time of 4 mins 37 secs. He placed himself in the top group from the beginning of the race and kept his position through some pushing and pressure from other athletes, but held his own to give a strong performance and a great finish. His hard work and training really showed and the school is very proud of the strong senior athlete he is maturing into. Well done Craig!!
