NORTHERN IRELAND and ULSTER RANKING LISTS
This is an ongoing project which will be added to over the coming months. Women's ranks in the early 1970's were prepared by Maeve Kyle. Brian Rowan is responsible for the 1972,1976 and 1981 Men's lists and Alan Keys produced Men's lists from 1983-2011. John T Glover took over from Maeve in mid 70's and has continued producing Women's lists to 2016. In 2020 I and Paul O'Neill collaborated to produce complete Northern Ireland and Ulster lists for Male and Female of all ages. With the help of the National Union of Track Statisticians Handbooks we hope to add the leading performances by Northern Ireland athletes from the 1950's through the seventies when local lists were first produced.
It is doubtful that the rankings from 70 years ago will mean anything to the majority of visitors to this website however for various reasons I believe they are worthy of a browse. I am indebted to the late Sean Kyle who compiled all these lists by hand. My only input was to add forenames where known and to convert feet and inches to metric measurements.
