Super day for the ladies at the Laois Novice CC on Sunday 29th September with individual and team gold collected. Sandra Fitzpatrick took the title with a mighty run, with Maria Cuddy close behind in second spot and Pammie Grogan hot on their heels in 4th. Amy and Charlie were not far behind either as team gold was secured. Paul Cuddy was our only male on duty, coming home on 8th position. Well done all on a great start to the CC season. 


Rathfarnham 5K - 29.09.19

Four club members travelled to Rathfarnham for the prestigious 5k and we had some excellent performances in our new singlets. Mary Mulhare took pride of place, coming home first lady in an excellent time of 16 46, another massive performance by Mary.  Her brother David returned to action by posting a fabulous time of 15.25, taking 20th spot in a class field.   Next up was Colm Fitzgerald in 16.51, with Aengus Burke taking 2nd 0/50 in 17.27.
