We are delighted, as well as extremely proud, of the achievements of Charlie O Donovan, who is now the All -Ireland Schools Senior Boys 1500 metre Champion. He is the first student in the school's history to achieve this unique feat.
Charlie is developing into an elite athlete and this was proven last weekend, when , in Tullamore, Charlie won the 'Irish Milers Club Irish Schools 1,500 Metres Champions Cup'.
This is a wonderful achievement and all concerned are justifiably proud of him.
We congratulate Charlie himself as he is a credit to himself, his school and his parents, Michelle and Reynolds, as well as to Ken Nason of Leevale Athletics Club.
We also acknowledge the great work of his school coaches Brendan Crowley , Alan Haynes , Barry Kelly and the late Eoin Deasy.
We wish Charlie all the very best in his future athletics career.
