Adam McCann just missed a top 10 spot in 11th.
Jude McGann's fine 3rd place led the Intermediate team to a strong team win. Eoin McConnell was just behind in 4th and Lorcan McCann finished 8th reaping the rewards of his recent consistent training. Casey Walsh and Ben Neal ran strongly in 13th and 14th in their first year in this age group.
The Junior team (Yr10) claimed bronze with Tiernan Conway leading the way in 4th. He was in the top 3 throughout the race and just missed an individual medal in a sprint finish. Se Sweetnam and Cillian McMullan fillowed in 11th and 13th. The year 9's finished 5th in the closest of races where the top 5 teams were separated by a mere 4 points. Cormac Leheny (4th) and Thomas Coy (8th) ran well to claim top 10 finishes. Patrick Hume completed the scoring trio in 21st with both Leo McAuley and Eoghan Hanna close behind.
