Donal Devane ended the All Ireland Cross Country Championship in style by winning the Novice Men All Ireland Championship in Dunboyne, Co. Meath. In a flat muddy course he found a reserve to stay ahead for the Gold spot. As quoted by Athletics Ireland “Devane delivered a blue chip performance”
Jamie Kelly was the 12th man home in the U19 Boys Championship, a sterling performance which saw a very strong Michael Morgan for Sligo AC race to the gold spot.
Laura Healy ran a very strong race to finish 6th in the U19 Girls
Dean Casey finished a very very tight race in 2nd place just being beaten by Scott Fagan in the final stretch. Mark Hanrahan never let him get too far out of sight and finished strongly in 11th position.
Neasa NiAinifein finished her U17 Girls race in 8th position, running a great race.
The U11 Girls kicked off the Uneven Age Championship and Faye Mannion 9th, Sophie Maher 10th and Millie Watts 11th showed how it was done finishing together as a team and doing the club super proud.
