The Munster Uneven Ages Cross Country Championships were held in Castlelyons on Sunday 10th November. Weather conditions were not very favourable. It rained throughout the day and it was freezing. Conditions underfoot got very mucky and difficult especially for the older juveniles and adults. Well done to all athletes.

This team came 2nd overall out of a large number of teams and were only beaten on one point by Ennis Track to win the Championship team title. Avril Millirick kept up her good form and finished in a very strong 4th place. Grace Rooney also had a great race to finish 9th. Both of these girls won bronze individual medals and they also scored on the Cork team which came 2nd in the Inter-county section. Avril was the first scorer on the Cork team and Grace Rooney was the 4th scorer. Next in to score on the Youghal team was Alex Cashman 19th and closely followed by Sophie Connon in 20th , Tara Hickey came 56th. All girls won silver team medals.
