Dunboyne Winter Throws Festival
A tidy season opener of 59.92m for Sean Mockler last Saturday, February 22 in Co. Meath at the Dunboyne Winter Throws 2020. Placing 2nd, it's also a PB for Sean of over 3 metres in the senior weight which is a big improvement. Also as an interesting side note he has surpassed the great Olympic Champion of 1912; Matt McGrath of Nenagh now as the furthest to throw the 7.26kg hammer from County Tipperary.
