Local athletes Kate O'Connor (St Gerards AC / Michael O'Connor) and Sarah Connolly (North Down AC / Laura Turner-Alleyne) have been named in the Ireland team for the upcoming European Combined Events Cup which will take place in Monzon, Spain on Saturday 1st and Sunday 2nd July 2017.

 Kate has been in excellent form of late - just last weekend she broke the Northern Ireland Under 18 and Under 20 Long Jump record with a personal best leap of 6.10m and bettered her own Shot Putt record with a 14.46m effort.  Sarah has produced some notable personal bests both indoors and outdoors this year and recently impressed at the BUCS Track & Field Championships.

The ladies will be joined on the time by Amy McTeggart (Boyne AC), Michael Bowler (Enniscorthy AC), Shane Aston (Trim AC) and Rolus Olusa (Clonliffe Harriers).
