Our athletes braved terrible weather conditions on Sunday last at Castlelyons to compete at the Munster Cross Country Championships. It was a true test to their ability as the heavy rain never let up and the course was completely cover with mud making it really hard to get going.
Donal Bourke just missed out on a medal for the Cork team by finishing 7th for the team but he has qualified to run the All-Ireland Championships in Waterford in December. We are very proud of him to be wearing the Millstreet A.C singlet at such a high level and we wish him all the best.
The club was also represented at Castlelyons by Emily Ring, Sarah Bourke, Orla Buckley, Ian Buckley, Daniel Buckley, James Buckley, Ian Buckley and Eanna O’Mahony. While they didn’t bring home any medals they will all go forward to running in the Munster “B” Championship at Beaufort on 1st December next and we look forward to this event.
