National Senior 400m hurdles

karen dunne

Well Dunne, Karen Happiness is not always as the TV often said “A Cigar called Hamlet” or perhaps the final act of Hamlet. But ask Karen Dunne as she clasps her National senior silver medal today, after producing another epic performance to take the silver in today’s National senior ladies 400mts Hurdles final at Morton Stadium.


In a year that has been long and often documented for the wrong reasons. Today many athletes were delighted and privileged to get a chance to participate in the premier event of the athletic calendar. So winning medals was the big bonus for many and Karen made the choice like many to continue training and today it paid off, as having qualified for the final easily on Saturday. Today she lined up for the final as the 4th fastest on paper. But like the bookies docket it means nothing until the result comes in, the final ran through to form with the title going to Nessa Millet from St Abbans in a time of 59-52 to retain her title , but behind her there was a battle for silver and bronze, which weren’t sorted until the home straight, and with a facing strong wind Karen Dunne entered the final straight in 4th place and true to her nature and her stubborn athletic maturity she pushed hard to the line to win the silver medal in a new personal best and Bohermeen club record of 61- 42, improving on last years, time and position of 3rd place. All Bohermeen AC members extend their congratulations on her fine performance as do all the young club athletes she coaches in Bohermeen, with special thanks to her coach Ciaran Conlon who always has the ability to get the best out of athletes .

Meath track relay Championships

meath track relay championships

Congratulations to all of the 27 teams that represented Bohermeen AC last night in Claremont Stadium in the year that the club celebrates its 50th anniversary since being reformed in 1969 one couldnt be more prouder of all these young people who represented the club last night. The club realises the huge effort that both parents many who were past members and the children put in to get there and be part of a memorable night, as said many times before the there are no children standing on the Olympic podium but some clubs fail to recognise this, children are meant to enjoy not endure their youthful years with their friends in sport.

Thanks to Patricia for orchestrating the planning in advance to have 27 teams on the track and also thanks to Ollie, Annie, Olivia and everyone on the night that helped get every Boherrmeen athlete to the line that wanted to run. Many club members recently did an updated child course in sport and the word SQUAD was being repeated as being the way of inclusion in all clubs and last night we were very proud of our SQUAD.
