We traveled to Templemore for our county championships this weekend with U13/19 on Saturday and the stars of the future our U9/12 were on Sunday. We had almost 90 athletes out over the two days and every one of them competed their hearts out.
With so many athletes each in two or three events we couldn't do an indept analysis of every event so starting with our wonderful U9 girls here's a quick run through, see what I did there.
Results and pictures of each of the events published on our facebook page & results can be found via Tipperary Athletics facebook page. https://www.facebook.com/Tipperary-Athletics-112962225429349/?epa=SEARCH_BOX
