Career Highlight to date: European Junior Bronze Medal 2017 / National Champion 2021

Aims for 2022 Season: Qualify for and compete well at both the World + European Championships in Eugene and Munich respectively. I also want to retain my national title.

How the Jerry Keirnan Foundation help you achieve these aims: The foundations funding help me to pay for flights to high quality meets abroad, and ensure I can acquire new shoes + spikes when my current ones are worn which is very important for injury prevention.

I recently opened my season in the Belfast Irish milers, where I won the 800m in a PB of 1:46.41. My next races are in Toulouse on the 26th May and Rehlingen on the 6th June.
