Belfast Milers Club 14th May 2022 - There were super performances by Lucan Harriers athletes at the Belfast Milers Club Meet at Mary Peters Track yesterday. Both Aoife Coffey and Dylan Wright were in very strong A races in the 5,000m and both competed really well. Dara Donoghue ran a brilliant PB of 1:54 in the 800m, winning his section and it looks like there is loads more in him. Saoirse Fitzgerald ran a fantastic race to win the women’s B 800m in 2:09 which is a big PB. This time is over 4 seconds inside the qualifying time for the European Youth Olympics. Finally, Liam Fitzgerald made a welcome return to form and ran 10 second pb in the 1500m running 4:17. Well done to all, great to see Lucan Harriers to the fore in such high profile competitions.
