Leinster Uneven Ages and Senior Cross Country – Adamstown 12.11.2017

Well done to Mary Mulhare, Tom Lupton and Amy Walsh who made the trip to Adamstown Co. Wexford to compete in the Leinster Uneven Ages and Senior cross-country championships. Mary had a fine race to finish in second place just behind Una Britton of Kilcoole A.C. in the senior womens race and Amy Walsh performed well in tough conditions in the girls U19 race. Tom Lupton who is having an excellent cross-country season to date finished just 12 seconds outside the top 10 in 16th place. This was enough to earn Tom a county medal with Laois finishing in third position in the mens senior race. (XC pictures – Credit Ballyroan/Abbeyleix District AC)
