Galway Primary Schools XCC - A Few Personal Words

Mick Rice has already posted Mike Tobin's report hereabouts so I will just add a few personal words on the event itself and its organisers here.


I was wrangled in to help Mike put some shape on the Galway Primary Schools Cross Country Championships (lunchtime on Tuesday, 30 September 2008).

Four different races, around a 800 to 1000 metre brass course. 3rd and 4th class girls; then 3rd and 4th class boys; then 5th and 6th class girls; finally 5th and 6th class boys.
