All Ireland Schools and Versities CC

Mar 8, 2009 [Brian McDonald] Some great performances from the Clonliffe Harriers athletes that were running for their school or University in the All Ireland Schools & Universities cross country championships.

The meet was held at the University of Ulster, Jordanstown on Saturday 7th March 2009.

Our local school St Aidan’s CBS came away with 2 team medals, much the joy of the coach Alan O’Neill.

They took the bonze medal in the junior boys race and one of the highlights of the day, was when the senior boys took home the silver medal.

Notable Clonliffe performances include in the Senior Boys Eoin McDonnell 8th and Colm Murray 9th .

In the senior Girls race Sarah Finnegan had a gutsy performance running for Loreto St Stephens Green, finishing 15th, and eligible to run in this race again next year.

In the Ladies Universities race Becky Woods finished in 5th place, with her team mate Louise Reilly in 7th both running for Trinity College.
