The club had one athlete – Jack Hickey – competing at this prestigious competition where the top schools athletes from across the Country came together in Tullamore on Saturday for the national finals.  Jack has qualified as part of the Thurles CBS Intermediate 4 x 100mts Relay team but following some withdrawals from the 400mts he was also selected to compete in this event on the day.  In one of the toughest events on the track he produced a personal best performance to finish 7th in a time of 54.16.  Not content with this great performance he produced another one in the relay to help the CBS team to 2nd place and a coveted national schools silver medal.  Well done Jack on a terrific performance and indeed to all of the County athletes who produced some remarkable performances on the day.
