Leinster Master Cross Country

Our Men's Quartet of Tony Reilly, Cyril Cuddy, Colm Fitzgerald and Aengus Burke represented our club in the Leinster Masters Cross Country held in Dunboyne, County Meath. This is a very competitive race with all the best Masters runners in the province lining up.

All our guys had super runs giving everything right to the line and bringing home 10 Leinster medals. (3 Individual medals, 4 Club Silver medals and 3 County Silver Medals).

Tony Reilly led the team home finishing 5th overall and placing 2nd in the O/45 section. Tony also led the Club and County teams to Silver medals. Cyril Cuddy was next and had a great run passing two guys coming down the home straight, For all his hard work Cyril picked up a bronze medal in the O/40 section and also got a Club & County Silver. This was Cyril's first Individual Leinster medal in Cross Country and well deserved.

Colm Fitzgerald, our Laois Novice Champion was next and Colm's strong run got him Club & County Silver medals, Aengus was next in and Aengus got a silver medal in the highly competitive O/50 section and also got a club silver medal.

Great running by all the lads and just reward for their hard work and dedication.
