Ciara becomes the latest Ard Scoil athlete to be selected to represent Ireland and this is a well-deserved honour as Ciara has put in a very hard years work under the guidance of coach Len Thomlinson and has made a huge improvement in her throwing. All in the Ard Scoil wish Ciara the best of luck in Glasgow on Sat July 17th .
