First All-Ireland medal

Patrick Mills won the  first individual All-Ireland medal for Moy Valley Athletic Club on the 10th July after securing a bronze medal in the All-Ireland outdoors javelin event.  Throwing into a very strong head wind and with the rain coming down Patrick threw in excess of 50 metres.  It is just reward for all his hard work and everybody in the club is delighted for him and his proud parents Helen and Martin.
