The result is testament to Anna's years of hard work with dedicated coach Gerry and proud parents Enda & Louise.
Well done and thank you to Juvenile member Ruth Murtagh aged 7 who represented LSA in the parade to celebrate the 150th National Championships. Ruth did us all proud in our retro LSA colours.
