Ger O’Donnell Gets Ireland Euro Team Call-Up

New National 110m Hurdles champion Ger O’Donnell has achieved another season milestone having been selected for the European Team championships in Sandnes, Norway.

The Carrick-on-Shannon hurdler collected his fourth national championship and made it three-in-a-row as he posted 14.26 seconds for gold.

O’Donnell will be joined on the Irish team by club mate Eanna Madden who was selected in the 4x100m relay team along with Kinnegad’s Niamh Fogarty who won the national discus title.

“Any time to win a national championship is something special” explained O’Donnell after winning his fourth national senior outdoor title.

“It was always going to be a tight race between myself and Matthew Behan and I had got a pretty good start, which probably but him off” smiled O’Donnell.

“I came through strongly and got the win by a couple of tenths of a second so I’m thrilled to get a win” added O’Donnell.

“There’s the Belfast international on Wednesday, I might do that” added O’Donnell” but getting to Sandnes was the goal.

“I won the national championship and my form was good so that was my target” smiled O’Donnell.
