UNDER 16 GIRLS SCORE AT CASTLELYONS – Liscarroll AC athletes made the trip to Castlelyons on Sunday last to compete in the Cork County juvenile relay Cross Country Championship. Girls’ under-16 did us proud to win a set of bronze medals. The four girls involved found the going tough, because none of them do cross country but they put in a tremendous effort over a 500 metre course. Girls involved were Irene Kellegher, Aoife O’Sullivan, Aoibh Hogan and Ria Murphy.s.
Girls’ under-10 and under-12 along with boys’ under-10 were unsuccessful in their efforts but it is the taking part that counts. Those, who competed were Emma O’Connell, Clara Whelan, Grace Murphy and Louise Flynn at under-10 and Aoibhinn O’Reilly, Niamh Hennessy, Shona Murphy and Ella Butler at under-12. All of those girls were running up an age and the experience will stand to them in the future. The four boys involved were John Butler, Conor Blastland, Evan Murphy and Fionn O’Sullivan. This was the final cross country at county level for 2018 and athletes turn to Munster Championship next, with the juvenile uneven ages at Turnpike, Two Mile Borris, Co Tipperary on Sunday, starting with under-nine girls at 11.30, athletes are requested to be there by 10.30 on the following Sunday it will be the Munster relay.
