Great performances at All Ireland schools Cross Country

The Irish Life Health All Ireland Schools cross country Championships returned with plenty of brilliant performances yesterday March 12th in Mallusk. In the Junior girls race Eavann Duffy put in a fantastic race when coming home in 9th position and again was the first home from Munster in a time of 9.31. Our other 3 competitors all went to the starting line in the girls senior category and what a performance by all. Muireann Duffy placed 5th first lady home for Munster in a time of 12.13, Emma Murray placed 14th in a time of 12.40 and Laura Cooney competing for the first time in this event placed 34th in a time of 13.48. A measure of how good these finishing positions were, was had they all attended the same secondary school they would have won the National Silver Schools team medals. Well done all.
