Euro Cross Country Championships

We had 2 club athletes representing Ireland at the European Cross Country Championships in Chia, Italy. Carla Sweeney finished 31st in Junior women's race, 2nd lady home on the Irish team which finished 10th. Mitchell Byrne represented Ireland in the U23 race. Mitch made his international debut in warm conditions in Sardinia, finishing 57th, so training & studying in the United States looks to be paying off. Well done Mitch.



The AAI National Novice Cross Country Championships took place in Dundalk IT.

Rathfarnham women's team finished 7th, with Clare Sullivan 15th, Lynne Hennessy 29th, Suzanne Ryan 71st, Aisling O'Connor 93rd.

Rathfarnham men's team finished 14th overall: Eoin McLoughlin 78th, Oisin Boland 148th, Peter Twoomey 120th, Neil Skelton 126th.
