After a number of months analysing Juvenile Indoor results Seamus Lynch has recorded the GCH Juvenile Indoor Best Performances for County, Province and National/International Championships. It has taken many hours delving through the archives to produce such a comprehensive document. The club is very appreciative of the work that has gone into this. We would also like to acknowledge the help received from Iain Shaw with the sourcing of historical records.
Please note that there are three tabs on the excel Document.
