Midleton News Update: 12/11/2012

Munster Intermediate Cross Country:

Today was truly great a day for Midleton AC.

Well done to our girls who won Gold in the Munster Intermediate Cross Country in Waterford. Orlaigh Farmer was 2nd followed by Michelle Kenny in 6th and Anna Doris 7th. Ladies Captain Sally Drennan was the fourth of our ladies home. It seems to be every week now that we are congratulating these girls. It is a great achievement by all, week in week out they produced the goods and now they have a cup to show for it. Well done again Ladies. Hopefully we will have a photo of the Gold wining team during the week with their new cup.

Also Orlaigh and Michelle were on the Cork Team which also won on the day. It’s a great achievement to represent your County and win, Well Done.
