Happy Christmas ๐ŸŽ„โ˜ƒ๏ธ๐ŸŽ…๐Ÿผ

Hard to believe but Training has finished until 2019.

Congratulations to Shauna, Lottie and John who did not allow Storm Deirdre to deter them from competing in the National Uneven Age Cross Country Championships in Navan on Saturday.

All put in great performances under very tough conditions, with Shauna stepping up an age group to U/13’s. Lottie was the 6th scorer in 39th place helping the Dublin team secure gold in the County competition. John had an amazing race finishing in 8th position in the individual race and was 2nd team scorer for Dublin securing a silver medal for Dublin County team and a bronze medal for Dublin province team.

The Senior groups joined by the Sprint Group finished up with the annual Christmas cake run in Ardgillan on Sunday. As always a hotly contested competition with Nathan, Aoife and Shauna battling out for the first cake, Aoife just taking it on the line.

Another sprint finish for the older group with Philip just beating Josh.

Thanks so much to Joanne for organising and as always supplying the beautiful cakes. Thanks to the parents who supported and brought cakes, treats and hot chocolate, (including the Ericson & Fanning families for the warm sausages, and Nathan for his amazing healthy (at least that’s what I’m telling myself ๐Ÿ˜‰) brownies.

Thanks to the coaches and committee members for all you do for our athletes during the year, the parents for your ongoing support and of course the athletes whose hard work and commitment make it all worth while.

Have a good break. Wishing you all a Happy and Peaceful Christmas. Look forward to seeing you all back at training in the New Year.
