Clonliffe claims 1st place in Dublin Novice CC Championships

On what was a lovely day for the competition in the Phoenix Park, Clonliffe’s Novice Men took 3 of the top 10 places and overall 1st with a score of 51. Michael MacDiarmada had a fantastic race to come in 3rd place, Ronan Hartnett came in 6th, Sean McDonnel had a storming last lap to come from 15th to 8th and further back Murray Ahern completed the scoring with 34th. His brother Dylan came 39th, Colin Hickey was 48th, Almeida De Capela was 49th and Tony Kernan was 59th, completing the team. It’s a fantastic result for the lads and particularly for Sean McDonnell who was out for most of the last year with injury. Our Ladies came team 5th, with Aisling Coppinger an excellent individual 8th, Bronagh O’Brien 19th, Catriona Boyle was 21st and Helen Walsh was 26th.
