The All Ireland Juvenile ‘B’ Championship was held in Dundalk on Sunday the 24th January . We had three juvenile athletes travel the long distance to compete in the cross country event. The journey was definitely worth the trip as all three girls performed brilliantly. In the U11 race Orla Ryan ran a fantastic race to finish 3rd winning bronze. In the same race Kate Ferncombe finished 8th winning a medal for finishing in the Top 12. Lorna Ryan took part in the U13 race and ran a great race finishing 13th missing out on Top 12 by a photo finish. This is fantastic running by our juveniles at National Level.


We had 4 athletes take part in the Moyne AC 5k Fun Run/Walk on Sunday 24th January. All 4 ran fantastic to finish in under 20 mins in what was a very competitive field. Dermot Hayes was first home for the club finishing 9th in 17:46, he was followed closely by 12th John Shanahan 18:07, 13th Ruaidhri Devitt 18:12 and 33rd Noel Casey 19:59. Junior athlete Gerry Hayes also took part in the race.
