This is the most dramatic finish to a race we’ve ever seen

Last weekend’s Irish Intervarsity Track and Field Championships produced one of the most dramatic races we’ve ever seen, writes Stephen Barry.

UCC’s Phil Healy began the anchor leg of the Women’s 4 x 400 metres relay final in fifth and the best part of 100 metres behind runaway leaders UCD, but soon began to catch up.

Or in the commentator’s words: “UCC from the depths of hell are powering through!”

Check out what happens next…

It just goes to prove that relays are the best!

Well done to Phil and the rest of the UCC team, Christine Neville, Niamh Moore and Louise Shanahan.

Last week, I shared my lockdown experience. I asked for a more uniform approach, should there be another lockdown. I explained that I worked mornings. Maybe I should have been more specific: working 8am to 1pm without a break, I gave feedback and covered the curriculum, using our school’s online platform. In the afternoons, I looked after my three kids (all under ten) while my husband worked. It was a challenging time for everyone and the uncertainty around what I should have been doing as a teacher made it harder.Diary of an Irish teacher: I want to get back to work.
