Congratulations to Ella McDaid 1C who represented Ursuline College in the “Irish Life Health All Ireland Schools Combined Event 2016” held in Athlone IT. She was presented with a gold medal in the Minor Girls age category. Ella was the first Connaught finisher in the Connaught Schools Combined Events on 26th October 2016 and this qualified her for a place in the all- Ireland Final.

Ella finished in 7th place overall. The combined Events is an indoors competition held in the AIT International Arena facility and involves the athletes competing in the following five events over one day:60m hurdles, high jump, long jump, shot putt and 800m. This was a fantastic result and we hope she will continue to represent the school in future athletic events
