Irish Milers Club - Friday 22nd May 2009
It was a balmy 21 degrees, no wind and blue skies when the athletes arrived in Irishtown for the first IMC meet of 2009. A perfect night for racing and the times that followed proved that. Both Sligo AC and North Sligo had athletes involved in two events with Tommy Casey running 4.06.16 in the mens 1500m A Race. The 3000m A Race pitted Martin Conroy and Emmett Dunleavy against some of the best athletes in the Country. Both ran fast times with Dunleavy achieving a PB over the distance in 8.18.06 whilst Conroy was just behind in 8.24.56. Such performances augers well for all these athletes over the coming season.
