The Celtic International XC was held in Stirling, Scotland on Sat 12th Jan. Youghal AC had 2 athletes competing on the Irish team, Emma Landers and Avril Millerick. These girls were selected following very successful performances by both, throughout the XC season.

Conditions were challenging in Scotland but this rain and tough underfoot conditions did not deter our athletes .

Emma put in an outstanding performance in the U17 girls 6k competition to finish 2nd overall winning an individual international silver medal. She also led her Irish team to team silver.

Avril Millerick also had a superb run to finish 5th overall and was the 2nd scorer on the Irish team, also winning a silver international team medal.

Well done to both girls on a fantastic performance.
