Galway City Harriers Team battles hard to make the National League Final

After the 1st round of National league it was looking like GCH men’s team would not make the final. We were in 11th place and 9 points behind a qualifying spot. In true club spirit though we rallied for the 2nd round and were putting out a super strong team.... that was until week of competition.
