Grand Prix Series 2019 takes to the Grass !!

The Grand Prix Series continues this Thursday evening at Santry Demesne with the running of The O’Connor Cup, 4 Mile Grass Race @ 8pm. The O’Connor Cup was traditionally a Cross Country Race, but became a Summer Grass Race with the advent of the Grand Prix Series. The O’Connor Cup is one of the oldest Clonliffe club races and is a most special race in our clubs history. The O’Connor Cup is a fabulous trophy, which was first presented to the club by J.J O’Connor, who in the late 1920’s and early 1930’s dominated Irish Cross Country running. O’Connor won the National Cross Country Championships on no less than four occasions with several different clubs, but it was in the colours of Clonliffe that he won the National Cross Country Championship in 1935.

The presentations for both The Mc Carrick Plate, which was kindly sponsored by Paul O’Loughlin and the O’Connor Cup, kindly sponsored by Alan Worral will take place on Thursday.
