Our athletes had some fantastic runs which brought home team medals in all catorgories that they ran in,which made for very happy athletes.

Some very impressive indivual runs from Limerick AC were rewarded with medals on the day.

Our own Sophie Mc Namara running U9’s worked her way through the athletes to finish 3rd.

Aidan Donnelly U9’s took on his very first X Country race and gave a flying finish to claim the Gold in style.

Rosie Hickey U11’s who out of age seemed to skip over the mud as light as a feather and with a strong finish to take 3rd.

Luke Calitz and Diarmaid Hurley U11’s found themselves in front early on in the race and both continued running shoulder to shoulder until the battle for 1st position was inevitable. In the end Luke took Gold and Diarmaid took Silver.

Meabhdh Hurley U13’s took the lead from the start with Victoria of Dooneen AC always close by until the fight for the Gold.Victoria tried a few times to pull away with 250m to go but Meabhdh was having none of it on Sunday.Meabhdh pulled away and aimed for the finish line taking 1st place.
