About 35 schools turned out for the East Leinster Schools Cross-Country hosted by Blackrock College – and mercifully the rain disappeared after the minor races. Highlights included a win for James Maguire in the boys’ inter race, solid victories for Niamh Ni Chiara and Sarah Healy in the inter and junior girls races, and the return of Dylan Keegan in the boys’ senior race.  Huge numbers in both minor girls’ and boys’ races.

* Congrats to Brigid Corrigan of Mount Sackville who is the new president of Leinster Schools Athletics. Best wishes to Fr Ailbhe O Mhurchu who has retired from Gormanston and headed for pastures new in Munster.
