Carraig-na-Bhfear AC hosted the East Cork Uneven age cross country championships on Sunday last. As a result of the recent heavy rain, conditions were slippy and challenging in places. This was an event that was really enjoyed by athlete’s, both juvenile and adults. It was just regrettable that we couldn’t make up teams for some of the age groups.
Results were as follows: Girls U-9: Sarah O’Connell (10th) Boys U-9: Conor Hayes (7th), Jack Kiely (15th), Cian Dunning (16th), Daniel Harte (20th) Girls U-11: Lucy Aherne (13th), Doireann Hayes (17th), Lucy Barry (18th), Cliona Dunning (25th), Karina Hartnett (33rd) Boys U-11: Gearoid O’Brien (11th), Nathan Sheehan (21st) Girls U-13: Meghan Carr (2nd), Laura Mellerick (10th), Hazel Sheehan (15th) Girls won a Team Bronze Boys U-13: Kevin Barry (4th), James Hayes (13th), Tom Hartnett (14th)Girls U-15: Laura Hayes (1st), Sara Barry (2nd), Caoimhe Hayes (3rd)……Super performance by the girls which won them a team silver as well.
In our adults section our team brought home a team bronze.
