3 of our athletes were in action in Edinburgh on Saturday 9th of January competing in the Great Edinburgh Cross Country Event where they were wearing the green of Ireland singlet. (Donal Devane in the u17 Boys Irish team, Kevin Mulcaire in the Irish junior team and Karl Fitzmaurice in the U23 Irish Team).
Athletics Ireland had this to report on their website “Kevin Mulcaire (Ennis Track) bounced back from his 25th place finish in the junior men’s race at the European Cross Country Championships with an excellent second place finish over 6km in 19:25. Mulcaire, representing Europe, led large portions of the race, before succumbing to Great Britain’s Alex Yee who won in 19:23. Jack O’Leary (Mullingar Harriers) had a good run in 6th in 19:43”
Donal Devane ran exceptionally well being 3rd scorer for the Irish U17 team which took home the gold medal.
Karl Fitmaurice was part of the U23 team that finished in 3rd place.
