At 3:11pm (8:11pm Irish time) on Saturday 11th February, Scoil Naomh Pádraig’s Bernard Ibirogba will lace up his racing spikes and the toe the line against America’s fastest 8 year old boys at the world famous Millrose Games. Having become Irish National Champion last December, Bernard will pull on the Irish vest for the very first time and compete in the Fastest Kid on the Block 55 metre sprint. With 12 Olympic Gold Medallists competing at the same meet, this will undoubtedly be a very proud moment for Bernard, his family and friends. The entire school community of Scoil Naomh Pádraig are so proud of Bernard and we all wish him the best of luck in New York City. As often said during our training sessions; RUN LIKE THE CLAPPERS BERNARD!!!
