Thomas Barr (Ferrybank) and Ciara Mageean (UCD) will lead a strong Irish team of 41 athletes competing at the European Athletics Championships in Berlin on August 6-12.

Barr and Mageean are the leading Irish athletes on the European rankings, and will be looking to bring their first place form from last weekend’s Nationals into the event.

Phil Healy (Bandon) also led the way in the 200m on Saturday, and a podium finish at the European Championships would crown a groundbreaking season for the Cork native.
