Although weather conditions at the St Clare’s track in Manorhamilton on Sunday last were not very much like those one could expect at the beginning of summer, the large number of young athletes from 12 schools provided exciting competition as they battled for medals and points for the Overall competition.
In the end the Gilmartin Trophy for the best overall school was retained by St Caillins’ of Fenagh after a close contest with St Bridget’s Drumcong with Drumlease NS finishing third just ahead of Gaelscoil Liathroma.
The other two trophies on offer were the “Irish Rubies” trophy for the Under 11 Relay and this was won by Gaelscoil Liathroma while the P J Reynolds Trophy for the senior Relay went to St Bridget’s, Drumcong.
