Matthew Behan oozes class in high hurdles

Matthew Behan was a class act in the senior boys 110m hurdles with a new record of 13.79 seconds. It would have been a new national junior record but for a timing difficulty but the young CUS hurdler has plenty more in store this season.

Con Houlihan once told me that tomorrow is now. In taking on this venture I’ve started to try and put his words into action.

I worked for Con from 2007 till his passing in 2012 taking down his copy and a whole lot more. I have a Con Houlihan section which will go in to more depth on that.

I’m a long-time contributor to the Irish Runner magazine and am also working for the Irish Examiner.
