Athletics Ireland have confirmed that two Sligo athletes have been selected on the Irish schools team for the Home Countries International in Kent in three weeks’ time after their success at the interprovincial Tailteann games in Santry last weekend. Sligo AC clubman Zak Irwin from Sligo Grammar School will contest both the 100 and 200 metre events, and is set to compete on the 4x100 metre relat team as well. North Sligo’s Cian McBride from Summerhill College will compete in the 800m discipline. Both Irwin and McBride still have another year to compete at this level. Well done to both lads.
