Joint Statement from Athletics Ireland and Athletics Northern Ireland for the Belfast Irish Milers
27 May 2021
Athletics Ireland and Athletics Northern Ireland have worked together behind the scenes to jointly support our athletes to facilitate the issue of a European Athletics Permit with Category D ranking points for the Belfast Irish Milers meeting at the Mary Peters Track this Saturday 29th May.
Our commitment to the athletes in both the North and South of Ireland, their health, safety and status has always been the central theme throughout the management of this matter, and we are grateful for the support of UK Athletics in working collaboratively with us in ensuring that this meet could proceed with a European Athletics Area Permit.
We wish the athletes and officials a safe, enjoyable meet this weekend and look forward to some excellent performances.
