NATIONAL SENIOR AND EVEN AGE JUVENILE CROSS COUNTRY CHAMPIONSHIPS 
The National Senior and Juvenile Even Age Cross Country Championships were held in Abbotstown on Sunday, November 24. In the Senior race we had one athlete compete. Kevin Moore competed over the senior course of 10k in a very competitive field and finished 50th. In the the Girls U16 we had two athletes compete out of age and done very well considering. They raced over 4k and Kate Ferncombe finished a strong 27th and Orla Ryan was 63rd. In the Boys U14 we also had two athletes compete and they raced over 3k. Shane Buckley ran an outstanding race to finish a strong 4th just outside of a podium finish. Patrick Colville also ran well to finish 114th in a competitive field. Shane lead the Tipperary team to Gold and the Munster team to Silver.
