Wicklow Senior C/C C/ships

 

In todays C/C C/ships both our senior mens and womens teams performed way above expectations. In the mens event Ian McGrath, with a great run, took the silver medal and with great support from, Neil Wiktorsk (5), Finbar Kirwan (6), Gary Condon (7). Joe Cawley (12),Martin Francis (16), Dominic Horan (17) and Bill Stanley (23), Ian led the team to the team gold medal.

There was a treat in store for athletes and spectators alike in the womens event, as Fionnuala Britton, European Cross Country Champion and one of the best C/C runners in the world, put in a magnificient display to take the Gold medal. Her sister Una took silver and our own Suzanne Foot, ran the race of her life to take bronze. The womens team took the silver medal. In the team event Suzanne was well supported by Helen Barry (5), Noelle Thorpe (6), Denise O,Leary (11), Siobhan Butler (13), Charlotte Stevens (16), Leanne Geraghty (18), Grainne Cunningham (22), Andrea Murphy (23), Susan Dowd (24), Elaine Norton (26), Fiona Moran (27) and Lorraine O,Rourke.
