Well done to all the athletes who competed today at Abbottstown. Daphne got us off to a great start with a strong performance in the girls under 12 race. This was followed by our boys under 14 team, Joshua, Ben, Lorcan, James and Hugh, again producing a fine performance. Next up was the girls under 16 team. Despite racing out of their age, and Lily poorly all week, produced an outstanding performance to secure Bronze in the team event. All their hard consistent work over the winter paid off. Each member of the team battled to the end and fought for every place securing a two point lead over West Waterford. Well done Ruby, Lottie, Lily, Anna and Kerrie. Lottie was also fourth scorer in the Dublin team, who took Gold in the inter county competition. Mairead ran a strong race in the under 18 girls, as did Orla B in the under 23 8k (first time racing over this distance) and Ciara in the senior women. Thanks as always to the parents for their support. Also to the coaches for their hard efforts in preparing the athletes.
Beautiful day at Santry (even though a little chilly). Strong team and individual performances. All our athletes did us proud. Thanks to Kevin Cohen and KPMG for our beautiful new flags, (made finding each other a lot easier). Thanks also to the coaches and parents for their continued support, and to Dublin Athletic Board and Clonliffe Harriers for putting on such a great race.
