Cork Junior Cross Country
WEST MUSKERRY JUNIORS RUN WELL
Posted: 2/11/2014 -
Four West Muskerry Juniors were in action in the County Junior Cross Country
Championships on Sunday last the 2nd of November. All 4 were members of the West Cork
In the Junior ladies 4000m Rachael O` Shea is finding her way back in fighting form again and finished a very strong 4th place. Her teammate Stephanie O` Sullivan also made her way back after a year out and had a fantastic race. Both girls have earned their places on the Cork team for the All Ireland Inter counties in Dundalk on the 23rd of November next. Both girls helped West Cork win the silver medals in the team competition.
Billy Cronin and Seamus Gallagher competed in the Junior men 6000m and again both ran fantastic races. Billy stayed with the lead group and battled hard over the last lap and was well deserving of the 6th place. Seamus finished shortly after and while both boys earned their place on the Cork team they both have opted to run their own All Ireland U 18 which is being held on the same day. Both boys helped West Cork secure the bronze team medals. Best of Luck to all West Muskerry athletes who will be competing in the Munster uneven age cross country championships in New Market On Fergus Co. Clare on the 9th of November.
