‌It's been an exciting and eventful couple of months for DIT Elite Athletes with sucess in a number of sports. 

Ellen Keane got the ball rolling with a brilliant Gold medal performance in the 100m Breaststroke SB8 at the European Paraswimming Championships held at the National Aquatic Centre in Dublin. Ellen also claimed a Bronze medal a couple of days earlier in the 200m Individual Medley.


In Cycling, Conn McDunphy claimed the top spot in the Mens 4km Individual Persuit at the National Track Championships held in Eamonn Ceant Park while Cian Keogh finished in the top ten of the same event and also took home the Gold medal in the Mens Team Persuit.

And last but certainly not least, Brian Howard and Andy McGowan were part of the Dublin GAA Senior Football team that won their 4th All Ireland Football Championship in a row at Croke Park with a 2-17 to 1-14 victory over Tyrone.
