There was great local success at last evenings Manchester Track and Field international held at the Etihad Stadium.
West Waterford’s Kate Veale was in terrific form when she took 1st place in the 3 k race walk with a championship best performance of 12 minutes.49 seconds, smashing the old standard of 13.04.
Meanwhile, a homecoming event for European bronze medalist Thomas Barr has been planned for this evening in his native Dunmore East.
