As many of our athletes and coaches will be attending the Connacht Cross Country Championships in South Park on Sunday 30th October there will be no training for 7 to 12 year olds on this day.

We have had a number of volunteers who have agreed to look after this age group on Sunday 6th November (which is the date of day 2 of the Connachts ) so we will now be able to go ahead with training as normal and do not have to cancel on 6th November as previously advised.
