Coiste Chontae an Dúin and the family that is Down GAA would like to extend our congratulations to Ciara Mageean on winning a Silver Medal tonight in the 1500m at the Commonwealth Games, this is a great achievement for Ciara, and we extend our congratulations to her family and to the Gaels of Portaferry.
Ciara has always been a good friend to Down GAA and we look forward to seeing her at home again and attending our Championship Fixtures in the weeks ahead.
Mageean ran a superb race to finish second behind Laura Muir. The 30-year-old led early at Alexandra Stadium and was the only runner to stay in touch with Muir after the Scot moved in front with over a lap remaining.
Mageean was well clear of Australia's Abbey Caldwell in third as she took silver in a time of 4.04.14.
