IRELAND will field their strongest team for some years at the European Team Championships in Estonia next weekend.

Irish 400m record holder and European No 1 Thomas Barr, Diamond League racers Mark English (800m) and Paul Robinson (1,500m), Fionnuala Britton (5,000m), Amy Foster (100m) and Sarah Lavin (100m hurdles) will lead the team.

Ireland hosted the competition in Santry last year when they took their highest ever placing of seventh. While they are hoping to improve again, only a top-three finish earns promotion to the Super League.
