Below is the Roll of Honour of Irish Indoor Champions from their inception on the 12 & 13 of March 1988 to the present day. At that time Ireland had in fact, two World Indoor Champions in both Marcus O'Sullivan (1,500m) and Frank O'Mara (3,000m) who both struck gold at the inagural World Indoor Championships in Indianapolis in March 1987. The Championships have taken place every year from 1988 until 2001 in the Nenagh Indoor Complex, which is a tribute to the foresight and vision of Sean Naughton and the hard working Nenagh Olympic Athletic Club. 2002 saw the historic holding of the Championships in the Odyssey Arena in Belfast and they were rewarded with a World Indoor Record of 11.35.34 by Gillian O'Sullivan in the 3,000m Walk on the opening day of the Championships.

The only result that is missing from our files is the 1997 Men's 60m Hurdles Champion and we would be very grateful if anyone could forward this or any other addition to Pierce O'Callaghan at pierceoc@yahoo.com

(In the opening 3 years of the Championships there were no 200m, 400m, or 3,000m)
