GOOD RUNS IN NATIONAL CC:
At the National Underage Cross Country in Sligo on Sunday last there were some excellent displays from Tinryland athletes. Mary Ann O’Sullivan produced an exceptional performance to finish 5th in the Girls Under 13 event and was bronze medallist with Leinster in the Inter-Provincial section. Mary Ann is a daughter of Tinryland Senior athlete Jeremiah and is definitely a name for the future.
In the Girls Under 17 race, Deirdre Doyle ran well to finish 21st and she also won a bronze as part of the Leinster team.
Pat Byrne had what was probably his finest run in a National CC to date with an excellent 10th place finish in the Senior Mens Race.
The race was won by Irish CC Champion Gary Murray of Donegal with fellow internationals Mark Kenneally 2nd and Gareth Turnbull 3rd.
