Congratulations to Athenry Juvenile athletes who were selected to run for their county today in the beautiful surroundings of Charleville Estate, Tullamore in the national cross country relay championship on today Sunday (24 February 2013). On the Galway Girls U12 team, we had Sarah Gilhooley, Danielle Collins and Freya Bohan, who all ran really well against some very tough opposition. Well done girls you did great at a national event!

On the boys U12 team we had Christian Mullen and Ruairí Collins who along with their GCH team mates ran very well to finish fourth. Another great performance against several strong teams from all over Ireland, some of which included national chamions - well done lads ye did Galway proud on the day!  The girls U14 team won a brilliant silver.

Sincere thanks to Anne Burke (Ballinasloe and District) and others who put the teams together for this event.
