Many of our young juveniles travelled to Sligo for the Even Ages Cross Country and there were many notable performances on the day. Mia Craugwell continued her good form and finished in 4th place in the Girls U12 race over 2,000m distance. Clodagh Quirke also ran a fine race to finish in 43rd position. Richard McGrath was our only U12 boy in action on the day and he had a strong run to finish in 26th position.
