Congratulations to Terry Mc Hugh, who set a world record at Morton Stadium, Santry on Saturday by winning his 19th consecutive national javelin title.

He has competed in four Summer Olympics and in two Winter Olympics in the bobsleigh and has qualified for the European Championships in Munich next month. Terry is a son of the late Francie Mc Hugh, Stranaglough, Glenties and Tipperary and has many cousins in the Glenties area.
