Youghal AC had two ladies Aoife Cooke and Ruth Millerick who competed on the Senior Ladies Cork team in Beaufort outside Killarney on Sunday 8th November.

Conditions were extremely wet and windy and underfoot conditions were very very mucky and tricky on the course after the running of 11 juvenile races beforehand. Nevertheless Aoife and Ruth both running very well all season didn’t fail to impress. Aoife took an early lead with Shona Heaslip from An Riocht who managed to get ahead of Aoife in the last 1k. Aoife finished in a very strong 2nd place. Ruth ran very well coming in 5th just behind Jessica Coyne. Aoife was the first scorer on the Cork team and Ruth was the 3rd scorer. Cork came 2nd just two points behind the winners Kerry.

Congratulations once again Youghal AC ladies. Next up is the East Cork Senior Men’s and Ladies races in Carrignavar on 14th November and the Masters Cross Country in Cappawhite on 29th November.
