English and McGrory selected for European Championships

Mark English

Two Donegal athletes, Mark English and Kelly McGrory, have been confirmed for next month’s European Championships in Italy.

Two time European bronze medallist English will run in the 800m in Rome while Tir Chonaill’s McGrory has been named as a member of the 4x400m relay.

Both have been showing good form in recent weeks.

Meanwhile Finn Valley’s Roisin Flanagan could also be heading for Rome on the 7th of June but the County Tyrone native will have to wait until later in the week to see if her ranking by European Athletics is good enough to make the trip.
