Cross country running

September 16th was a very successful day for S.N. Cill Mhuire at Lee’s Rd, Ennis for the East Clare Cross Country Championships. Altogether, 36 children represented the school in boys and girls races across 3 age groups. Almost 100 children participated in each race so competition was very high! All 6 teams raced very well and should be very proud of their performance and behaviour throughout the day. Overall there were 10 individual medals – including 3 podium finishes – while the U-10 boys, O-10 boys & girls came first in their respective team events. The day began in perfect fashion as Grace Stafford finished in 1st place in the girls U-8 race. Louise O’Mahony came in 5th position in the girls U-10. Adam Holloway (1st)and Darragh Fitzgerald (8th) received individual medals in the boys U-10 race. In the O-10 races both the boys and girls’ teams did exceptionally well. Individual medals went to O-10 girls Emma Stanley (7th), Maeve Egan (9th) & Emily Costello (10th) while Oisín Breen (2nd), Oran Carey (7th) & Mark O’Mahony (10th) received individual medals in the O-10 boys race . The U-10 Boys, O-10 Girls & O-10 Boys teams along with Grace & Louise have qualified for the All-Clare CC Finals, taking place at Lee’s Rd on 11th November.
