Fearghal Curtin wins Junior title

The club had two athletes who qualifed to represent their schools at the All Ireland Schools Cross Country Championships in Ulster University, Jordanstown on 11th March last. Conditions were freezing but thankfully missed the snowfall.

Emily O’ Keefe came 52nd in the Junior Girls race and her St. Marys team finished in 6th place which was a good result in very stiff competition.

Fearghal Curtin had a great win in the Junior Boy’s race; he led from the early stages and won by a 30 second margin. This was one of his best races to date. Fearghal’s CBS team finished in a closely contested competition in 5th place. Fearghal was very happy to win his second successive All Ireland Schools title having won the Minor title last year.
