Well out of medal contention

Liath Lenihan on day 1 competed in the U13 60m hurdles. Unfortunately Liath did not make it through the heats, but she has not been training that long in hurdles so it was great experience for her.
On day 2 she took part in the High jump where she jumped 1.15m finishing joint 8th.

Fionn Coleman competed in the U10 60m sprint. He finished in 16th place. This was Fionn's first time competing at munster level.
