Kiernan to lead Clonliffe in National Intermediates

The Kiernan name once again features strongly in a Clonliffe cross country team, although this time it`s Bernadette. One of the club`s most improved athletes Bernadette Kiernan on Sunday leads the ladies team into battle in Dunboyne on Sunday for the National Intermediate.

The Intermediate women placed 3rd in the Dublins where Bernadette had a fine run to finish 7th. Bernadette will lead the team on Sunday. The full team is: Bernadette Kiernan, Emma Harding, Maura Matthews, Jacqui Dunphy, Caoimhe Cruise, Alison O’Sullivan, Joyce O’Hare and Aisling Andrews.

The men`s team are Dublin Intermediate champions, however, as a number of the athletes who competed that day in Tymon Park are unavailable having turned their attentions to the indoor season a weakened team will line up on Sunday. The final team is as yet unconfirmed. The Captain will run his eye over the form of athletes at a final seassion on Thursday before announcing the team. Update at that stage.
