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.

Isabella Burke ran a spectacular race to hold off the challenge of GCH clubmate,  Aoibhe Joyce in the Senior Girls race where the two girls finished 1st and 2nd, reversing last weeks semi final  placings where Aoibhe took first place.  Great performances too from Rachel Fahy who finished 6th and Leana NicDhonncha 7th.  Mia Craughwell also ran a fine race to finish 19th   and is eligible for this race again next year.   In the Junior GirIs race Juno Hayes finished in 15th place which will guarantee her a place in the Connacht Finals.Please see the full results attached below
