Sean McMullin honoured by Irish Masters (25th Feb)
Congratulations to Sean McMullin on being presented with the Tadhg Lynch Perpetual Trophy by the Irish Masters Athletic Association at its AGM on Saturday 25th February. This award is made annually in recognition of an athlete who has made a major contribution to Masters Athletics over a number of years.
Tadgh Lynch was one of the founding members of the Irish Association back in the 1970s and was well known in the European Masters Athletic Association until his untimely death in 1991. As both a competitor and official his contribution to Athletics and to Master’s Athletics in particular was immense.
Sean is the first current member of Mullingar Harriers to receive the award, though founder member and first Chairman, Sean Cooney, received it in 2016. The award was first presented to Eamonn Coghlan on being the first over 40 year old to run sub-4 minutes for the mile in 1994, so Seam is in very good company indeed!
