The All Ireland schools XC took place on Sat 5th March in Sligo racecourse. Youghal AC had 3 athletes in action on the day.

In the opening race Lucy O Keeffe judged her race well and had a brilliant run to finish 3rd in the minor girls 2000m. It was a super result for Lucy after a long XC season . A well deserved reward for all her training.

Jake McCarthy ran in the intermediate boys race. Unfortunately the testing crosswinds and climbs took their toll and Jake had to retire due to injury.

Fearghal Curtin was up next in the senior boys 5000m race. He battled hard despite the bitter cold and testing terrain and finished a very good 19th position. A good result as his current training is geared toward track.

Well done to all. More photos available at
