Commins and McMahon for Leinster Performance Squad
Ardee & District Athletic Club duo Conor McMahon and Jonathan Commins have been selected on the Leinster Track and Field Performance Squad.
On Tuesday, details of both the Leinster and Munster Performance Squads were revealed by Athetics Ireland. Commins returns to the Performance Squad for the second time after selection in 2016/17. McMahon will compete for the first time.
The Performance Squad is for selected athletes only among the Under 16 to Under 19 age groups. The teenagers make the squad off the back of their combined results in the year’s track and field events for their club.
Young athletes from Dunleer AC, St Peters AC, Boyne AC, Blackrock AC, Drogheda & District AC and Dundalk St Gerard’s have also made the squad for the 2017/18 training sessions.
The Leinster Performance Squad will train four times with two sessions each at Morton Stadium Santry and the Athlone IT Arena between now and April.
