Report on Dublin Cross Country Championships Even Ages - Phoenix Park - 19th Oct 2014


On a very blustery day and a very hilly course, our 42 MSB juvenile competitors performed brilliantly to win a large collection of medals!


Our U10 Girls claimed the team Bronze medal over the 1,000m distance and Aoife Brown lead the way winning the individual Silver medal with strong performances also from Saoirse Nic Seoin, Ava Casey (both running-up from U9), Alison Callinan and Ruth Linnane. Great running girls.


Our U10 Boys team won team Gold - marvellous running boys - lead home by Tom Bolton (running up from U9) who claimed 4th place and great running also from Louie Woodger, Adam Nagle, Adam Brennan, Ben O'Neill, James Monaghan, Ethan Monaghan (running up from U9), Oisin Tebite, Oisin O'Shaughnessy, Donal Fitzmaurice, and Remus Onitiu.


Our U12 Girls won team Silver over 2,000m with Sadhbh Mohan (running up from U11) winning the individual Silver medal too. Other great performances from Aisling Sheridan, Leah O'Neill, Aimee  Fitzmaurice, Emma Furlong, Roisin McGuinness, Roisin Fitzmaurice and Niamh Glynn.


Our U12 Boys also won team Silver. Well done to Triain Rebega, Sean Og MacSeoin, James Bolton (running up from U11), Cian Prior, Finn Woodger and Josh Duggan on a tremendous effort.


Over a really tough 3,000m course our U14 Girls also won team Silver. Aisling Mohan lead the way for MSB in 4th place, with Molly Brown in 7th and super running also from Rebecca Ward, Ciara Hogan and Greta Hoey. 


Our U14 Boys worked very hard in a very competitive age group - well done Sam Turner, Paul Morgan and Owen Watt.


And finally we had great efforts also in U16 Girls from Rachel Furlong (running up from U15) and in U16 Boys from Mark O'Connor (running up from U15) and Adam Watt.


Overall, a brilliant day out for MSB juveniles in the Dublin Even Age Championships and we look forward to lots of entries in the Even Age Nationals (U12, U14, U16, U18; there is no U10 Nationals) in Dundalk on 23rd November, but before that our Uneven Age juveniles can look forward to Sunday 2nd Novemberin Santry Demesne for the Dublin Uneven Age Championships (U9, U11, U13, U15, U17, U19). The Uneven Nationals (U11, U13, U15, U17, U19) are also in Santry Demesne - the date for your diary is 7th December 2014.


In between we have League 4 in Tymon Park, Tallaght on 30th November.

Castleknock 5k Sunday 13th July 2014

on .

There was something special about the inaugural Castleknock 5K held last Sunday...!!!!!

             Maybe it was the course, a fast first downhill mile, into our wonderful Pheonix Park, a tour through Farmleigh, a tough climb up to the Castleknock College gates, a majestic finish in front of the College itself. 

            Maybe it was the participants, all in flying form and the reasons they had for taking part, the spirit of Rory Doherty, the funds they were raising for Cystic Fibrosis, the quest to raise awareness for organ donation, the desire to do something for a good cause or simply the joy of running or being out for a walk in the open air with friends and family.

            Maybe it was the enthusiasm of the organizers, Rory’s family and friends, the sponsors, the donators, the supportors, the stewards, the gardai, the OPW, the Zumba dancers, and all who combined to make this a race to remember.   

            One thing was agreed, race organizer Kate O’Neill had a lot to do with making it a special day, Kieran Gallagher’s skills at coordinating were evident and without Eamon Dolan on the PA we’d be lost.
