All Ireland Cross Country Relays

The All Ireland Cross Country 4 x 500m Relays were held last Sunday in Kilbroney Park Co. Down. We had 4 athletes selected from our club to represent Meath at u12, Aimee Doherty and Lili O’ Connor for the girls and Oisin Kelly and Tom Kilgannon for the boys. The U 12 Girls got off to a steady start and were 3rd after the first changeover but slipped back to 5th after the 2nd leg, Aimee Doherty put in a terrific run to bring the girls back to 2nd position but the girls slipped back on the final run in to finish 5th.
The U12 boys took no prisoners and dominated from the first leg with a strong run from Tom Kilgannon, the Leane twins from Dunboyne were on leg 2 and 3 and extended the lead with some very strong running. Oisin Kelly took the baton with a strong lead heading into the final leg and he extended the advantage with another very strong run to claim the National title. 

Congratulations to our Athletes who represented their County with some great performances.
