Proud KIllybegs man, Bernie O Callaghan currently chair of Donegal Athletics Board had an invitation this week from Chris Cohen Competition Director of this year’s London World Athletics Championships due to take place this upcoming August in London. He has been invited to act as an NTO a technical officer at the walks due to be held on The Mall
Bernie is a former international athlete and national champion and indeed is currently very active coaching young javelin throwers at Finn Valley AC and this is indeed a signal honour as normally only host country officials are in engaged in this prestigious position.
It’s a fitting acknowledgment of the former athlete and current official/coach as the former army officer has been involved in athletics a lifetime, indeed was a founding member of Donegal athletics board with Patsy Mc Gonagle ,the late Ben O Donnell and P J O Carlin .
