Results are attached, with many superb GCH performances throughout, of which more to follow! Congrats at senior level to Kathryn Casserly, first in the Senior ladies section, and to Niall Murphy who took silver in the Men's race with an incredible run!

There were some great performances  from GCH athletes in Renmore yesterday at  the County Primary Schools Cross Country Finals where over 500 athletes took to the starting line.  Athletes needed to qualify for this event from the semi finals last week where over 1,600 children took part.  It is heartening to see such large numbers participating in these cross country events.  Well done to Brian Bruton and his team for organising this event.
