It was a very good result for Kilcullen athletes in the Finals of the County Championships in Community Games, writes Papillon Rabbitte.

Track Events
The County Athletics Finals took place in Clongowes over two fabulously warm and sunny evenings. Leah Tyrrell who competed in the girls under-12 600 metres took the gold medal against some top class opposition. Leah now goes forward to the National Finals.

Well done to everyone and a big thanks to Alma and Yvonne for all their work in supporting the athletes.

Field Events
Well done to Ben Holloway (Long Jump), James Deane (Shot Put) and Paddy Taylor (Javelin) who all won county Community Games gold medals in Crookstown Millview A.C. All qualify to compete at the National Finals.

We would like to wish Leah, Paddy, James and Ben the very best of luck at the National Finals as they compete for their county this August in the University of Limerick.
