07/06/2017 LORETO COLLEGE ATHLETE SELECTED FOR ULSTER

A student from Loreto College Coleraine has been selected to represent Ulster in the Intermediate 1500 metres event, in the Interprovincials at Santry Stadium, Dublin on Saturday 24th June.

Niamh Carr, a Year 12 student at Loreto College, recently took Gold in the Intermediate Girls 1500 metres event Ulster Schools Track and Field Championships in late May, having taken Silver in the Intermediate 1500 metres at the District Championships.

Niamh is primarily a long distance runner, having won Gold in the Intermediate 3000 metres at the District Championships and Bronze in the same event at the Ulster Championships.

She qualified to compete at both distances in the Irish Life Health All Ireland Schools Track and Field Championships, held in Tullamore in the first weekend of June. Faced with a choice between the two events, Niamh picked the 1500 metres and took Bronze, having been in close contention for Silver after a brilliant race.

This is the latest in a series of superb achievements in middle and long-distance running for Niamh, and she was congratulated on her Ulster selection by Loreto College Principal Mr Michael James, who wished her well for the Inter-Provincial Championships on behalf of all the staff and students of Loreto College.
