Below is a copy of the email from Athletics Leinster confirming the Irish Team to compete at the
C.S.I.T. games in Riga, Latvia in June. Massive congratulations to Rathfarnham WSAF AC's Carla
Sweeney and Stephen Gaffney who have been selected, with Carla being the women's captain! 
Best of luck to the whole team.


The following athletes have been selected by Leinster Athletics to compete
as the Irish Team at the upcoming CSIT Games in Riga, Latvia from 13-18 June.
This is a major development initiative by Athletics Leinster to help
our athletes gain experience at international completion at a very
important stage in their athletics career. We would like to thank Athletics
Ireland for their financial support in registering Athletics Leinster with
CSIT and providing gear to the athletes. We would also like to thank all
Counties for their nominations which shows the calibre of athletes we have
in the Province. We would have liked to have brought more than 12 athletes
but we believe it's a major commitment from Athletics Leinster in our
athletes.
