PicA Having followed the fortunes of Ferrybank AC for over a decade I was delighted to see the  scintillating performances turned in by many of the club’s athletes at the National Senior  Championships in Morton Stadium, Santry last weekend. Ferrybank athletes have, for many  years, been no strangers to success but the victories that made the club a dominant force at  juvenile level are now being replicated at senior level across a wide range of disciplines both  on the track and in the field. The club brought a strong, fit team to Santry last weekend fully  expecting to pick up national titles. However a haul of eight gold medals (six individual and  two relay) along with two silver and four bronze medals was undoubtedly beyond even the  most optimistic of expectations. Seven years after winning her first national title at senior  level Kelly Proper lit up the Morton Stadium with one brilliant performance after another to  win three individual gold medals in addition to the gold she won with her teammates in the  100-metre relay and was named as ‘athlete of the meeting’.
