All Ireland Cross Country Even Ages – Dundalk 23/11/14

Congratulations to all our athletes that competed at the All Ireland Cross County Even Ages at Dundalk IT on Sunday 23rd November 2014. Having qualified as an individual or as part of a team that medaled reaching the All Irelands in itself is a huge achievement.
Ennis Track secured a number of individual medals and team medals. One or two of teams missed out medaling by a few points thus proving the old saying that “every place counts” and more importantly that every runner counts. These teams have huge potential and are already looking forward to future competitions. Many of our athletes also scored for Munster and the County team.
