Munster Novice/U23 & Juv. Even Ages Cross Country C'Ships

The first Munster Cross Country Championships of the season was held in glorious weather conditions in Ballinahina, Carraig na Bhfear, Co. Cork on Sunday 23rd October. It was the Munster Novice / U23 & Juvenile Even Ages which brought an impressive number of athletes competing.

The club had no juveniles competing in the Even Age group. In the Novice Women's race we had a club team made up of Caitriona Barry, Marie McKenna, Bernie O'Mahony & Pauline Joseph. A total of 66 women competed in this years race. 
Caitriona Barry ran well to finish in tenth place overall and was also part of the Kerry team to take bronze. Marie McKenna, competing at Munster level for the very first time ran consistently and towards the end picked off a few places to finish in 42nd. Bernie O'Mahony following her competitive race last weekend, came in just behind Marie in 46th place. Pauline ran a very good race is shows signs of improvement when she finished in 59th place. No team medal for the girls, but it was great to see the club colours flying high in Cork.
