There was double delight for Anna O'Neill of Doheny AC at the first day of the West Cork Track & Field Championships last Sunday.



THERE was double delight for Anna O’Neill of Doheny AC at the first day of the West Cork Track & Field Championships last Sunday.

Held at the CIT track on a cold but dry day, events were competed for by seniors, masters and uneven age-grades. O’Neill came out on top in the longest senior women’s race, the 3,000m, while Bandon had a 1-2-3 in the 100m, Pauline Callan crossing the line first. Dylan Roberts made it a Bandon 100m double while Michael Harrington of Durrus came out on top in the 3,000m. Anna O’Neill also triumphed in the women’s 800m while West Muskerry’s Dara Myers won the men’s re. 

In a new departure this year, the 3,000 senior event had a team element, with team prizes going to clubs in a similar fashion in the cross-county event. There was a great mix of clubs from the region and all the events were keenly contested, with all clubs taking a satisftory selection of medals.  

The second day, for even ages, takes place this Saturday at the same venue, starting at 12 noon. This year, the trophy for best overall club in the West Cork Championships will be the Catherine Duggan Memorial Trophy, kindly donated by the Duggan family in memory of the late Catherine Duggan, long time head coach at Bandon. This will be presented at the second leg of the Championships to the Club with the most points over the two days.
