Sean Cronin silvers in All Ireland Cross

Clonliffe Harriers today hosted for the first time in our history the all Ireland schools cross country at Santry demesne. Congratulations to the army of volunteers from the club who were out from 8 AM right through until the cleanup was completed at 5 PM. An outstanding job by each and every one in putting on what was in our completely unbiased view the best All Ireland Schools cross country to date!

It proved to be an historic day in the senior boys race as Belvedere College finally took the senior title. Throughout the course of the day there was brilliant close racing and all of the athletes competing should be proud of the contribution to a wonderful day’s sport. From a Clonliffe perspective the highlight came in the second race, the minor boys all Ireland where Sean Cronin put on yet another exciting display and unbelievably lost out on gold in a photo finish with both athletes being credited with the same time. Silver in an all Ireland cross country championship is an outstanding performance. Congratulations Sean. Fine runs also in the minor race by Eddie Joyce 16th, Devan Morrisey 37th, Rory Quill 44th, Mark Goss Keogh 62nd and Noah Rossi 88th.

Niall Carbery gave it is all in the inter-boys race finishing in a highly credible 36th place. An excellent run in the senior girls race by Aoife Hession saw her finish in a fine 32nd. Likewise Callum Simpson ran very well indeed in the senior boys race to finish in 27th.

And so the 2019/2020 cross country season has now come to an end and it was indeed a fitting end. Once again a huge thank you to all in Clonliffe who contributed throughout the course of this season and a particular thank you to our junior women and men’s squads who today gave back to the club by giving up their
