North Leinster Schools - 23 Jan 2015

Karen Hayes got things off to a good start with a 10th place finish in the girls minor race. This qualifies her for the Leinsters to be held in Santry on February 11th.. Aine O Connor was another to qualify with a fifth place finish in the girls intermediate after a great tussle with Rose Finnegan for most of the race. Aine was well supported by Lauren Kelly, Katie Lewis, Aoife Reynolds, Jennifer Bradley and Kate Byrne in the team competition. The boys intermediate race was probably the most competitive of the day with Alan Monahan, Paddy Shaw and our own Philip Marron battling it out at the head of proceedings. In the end Philip had to settle for third but this was excellent running against top class competition and augurs well for the rest of his season. Ben Mahon continues to improve and is one to watch out for over the coming track season. Ciaran Crowther (5th) and Ciaran McCarthy (15th) were others to catch the eye in the senior race and both will now go on to contest the Leinsters
