There were some very impressive performances at the East Leinsters this year. Debutant, Fia Donnelly won the senior 100m, came second in the 200m and anchored the victorious 4x100m relay team which also starred Anna Heavey, Kate Howlett and Amy Connolly. Another newbie, Róisín Gilmore came second in the first year 80m sprint as did second year, Abbie Sheehy in the 800m. Our second year relay team (Katie Connolly, Ruth Connolly, Rachel Deehan and Fiona Dwyer) finished third and our freshers came fourth in their respective team sprint. Other noticeable achievements were Anna Heavey qualifying for the 100m and 200m finals, along with Julia Grzelak coming sixth in the shot putt.

Two weeks later, Fia finished a credible fifth and sixth in the 200m and 100m respectively at the Leinsters and the senior relay team came fifth.
