Carrick-on-Suir athlete wins hurdles silver at National Track & Field Championships

Hurdles champ Miriam Daly of Carrick AC

Carrick-on-Suir AC athlete Miriam Daly produced a brilliant performance at the National Senior Track & Field Championships at the Morton Stadium in Santry last weekend to finish 2nd in the 400m hurdles. 

The U-18 star athlete ran a personal best time of 1 min, 01.32 seconds in the race. 

Her success follows hot on the heels of winning the U-18 Girls 400m hurdles title the previous week and representing Ireland in the European Youth Track & Field Championships in the event earlier this month. 

Catherine McManus won the gold in a time of 1 min, 00.24 seconds.

At 17 years-old, Miriam was one of the youngest athletes competing in the National Senior  Championships where Ireland’s best athletes were trying to secure their places at the European Track & Field Championships in Berlin next week. 

Miriam, who is a student at Scoil Mhuire in Carrick-on-Suir, will finish her summer campaign next weekend by representing Ireland in the 400m hurdles and relay in the Celtic International in Scotland.
