Portaferry GAC has congratulated Ciara Mageean on her brilliant run in this evening's World Athletics Championships 1500m final in Doha.
The former camogie star finished 10th and achieved a personal best time of 4:00.15 in the race which was won by Sifan Hassan of The Netherlands.
Before concentrating on athletics, Ciara was a talented camogie player with Portaferry, while her father Chris was part of the Down team that famously relegated reigning All-Ireland champions Kilkenny from Division 1 of the Allianz League in 1993.
