Longford participants acquitted themselves admirably at the Aldi National Community Games Festival in the University of Limerick last weekend, with Mostrim’s gold medal hat-trick being the highlight.

Talented sprint sisters, Yemi and Funmi Talabi, struck gold in the U-16 and U-14 100 metres events, respectively, while Izzy Masterson captured a third gold medal for Mostrim in the U-8 60 metres final.

Mostrim’s impressive medals haul didn’t end with their golden trio. Their Under 14 relay team, consisting of Solomon Edwards, Fahad Alam, Oliver Kuponiyi, Ali Aqubal and Orrin Murphy, won silver medals. Ali made it a double as he finished third in the U-14 individual 100m, thereby adding a bronze medal to his silver relay award.

Cathal Horkan (Kenagh) won a silver medal in the U-8 60m B Final, and the Clonguish U-12 boys outdoor soccer team also came home with silver medals. Clonguish defeated Munster standard bearers, Doora-Barefield (Clare) 2-1 in the semi-final on Saturday and in the final they went down, on a similar score-line, to the Connacht champions, Clarinbridge (Galway).
