Swansea was the stage for the British & Irish Masters Cross Country International which saw two of our athletes perform admirably. Congratulations to Mary McDermott on winning a silver medal with the Irish team in the over 35’s and well done also to John Downes on his 4th place run in the over 40’s.

Our large group of young athletes performed very well in the last of the Cross Country league fixtures in Newbridge House on Sunday. Eoghan Meyler won the boys u15 and his sister Ellen was 5th in the girls u15. The boys under 11 team of Daniel, Shay and Gabhann ran exceptionally well as did all our young girls. Robert Swaine impressed again in only his second race, finishing a strong second. New boy Luke Foley ran very well in the boys u16 to win his category. A big thank you to coaches, Linda and John D for their great work in preparing our athletes since August. Thank you to the parents for their support. Training is as usual on Tuesday and Thursday.
