On the 21st of September, 36 students from Kilmurry went to Lee’s Road to compete in the East Clare cross-country championships. When we got there we found our base. Then the U-8 girls went to the start line. Sadly we had no luck with the U-8 boys or girls. Then the U-10 girls went to the start line. Fortunately Grace Stafford came 7th place and got a medal. Unfortunately we had no look in the boys U-10. It was then the turn of the Over-10 girls. Louise O’ Mahony came in 2nd place and in 8th place was Aoibhín McNamara. Last, but not least, the Over -10 boys. At the end Adam Holloway came 3rd and Dara Fitzgerald came 9th. Anyone who got in the top 12 is through to the finals. Well done to all our competitors and thanks to all the parents who came us support us despite the terrible conditions.
