All-Ireland Title for Martina

Carrick AC’s Martina O’ Dwyer made the journey to Tullamore on Sunday last to compete in the All-Ireland Masters Track and Field Championships.Martina’s chosen event was the 1500m and she put in a tremendous performance to take the gold medal in a time of 4:56.This was a fantastic achievement as Martina is a relative newcomer to track racing having started her running on the road-racing circuit.All in the club congratulate Martina on her great success.
