When most of us are beginning to look forward to a few peaceful days off over Christmas, some of our intrepid athletes were up early this morning for a long drive to Waterford for the Uneven Ages National XC Championships. It is a phenomenal achievement to make the National Championships and all had solid runs. Well done to our Boys U15 team, Lorcan, Hugh, Josh, Altan and Ben, and Girls U17 team, Lottie, Anna, Kerrie. Wishing Ruby speedy recovery from injury.
Special mention has to go to our two U11 athletes, Shauna and Aoife. It is the first year they have been old enough to compete in the Nationals. They performed outstandingly (having prepared consistently in training all season). Shauna finishing 9th and Aoife close behind in 12th both receiving individual National Medals.
We are so proud of all our athletes. Thanks as always to the coaches and parents for support.
