The final domestic cross country event of 2021 takes place on Sunday at Gowran, Co. Kilkenny. This actually is probably the biggest, numbers wise, event in the national cross country program drawing juvenile athletes from all round the country as well as the national novice for men and women which also tends to have the biggest field of the season. Clonliffe will have teams competing in both the juvenile and novice events, indeed in the novice there are two men’s and women’s teams.
