Ardgillan Castle – Cross Country

Cross Country season kicked off in earnest yesterday with the first round of the juvenile leagues taking place on home turf in the stunning surroundings of Ardgillan castle. Despite the biggest sporting clash of the year taking place later in the day at GAA headquarters, the numbers competing from clubs all over Dublin and indeed guest clubs from Meath certainly didn’t disappoint. In the younger age groups, from u9s up there were on average between 50 and 60 children in each race. Thankfully the weather held up for the morning with conditions near to perfect for our budding young athletes. The course itself featured a few tricky hills combined with a steep downward slope, nevertheless all the athletes showed their steeliness in negotiating their way around the course. From a Skerries perspective there were a number of stand out performances with both Conor Tuck and Orla Bollard coasting to victory in their races. Well done to everyone and many thanks to those from both Skerries AC and Lusk AC who built the course over the weekend, to parents who helped with stewarding and to the coaches for preparing the children.
