All Ireland Silver Medal For Sinead Keavney with the Cork Team in the Nationals

Once again Sinead Keavney did her club and county proud helping the Cork team to a silver medal position in Dundalk today where she was second scorer on the Cork team. This was after a week of colds and flu but no excuses are required this was an excellent result and as a club we are truly proud of her season. Well done Sinead and Orlagh thanks from all in Midleton AC.
With results like these it was definitely worth missing the Christmas Party for.)

 Orla Farmer also had a great run finishing 53rd and from all reports she also did our club proud with a superb start showing her experience and especially with little racing  this year it is a fantastic result. Welcome back Orla.

There will be more exciting news on Sinead tomorrow but we are sworn to secrecy until the announcement but all club members will be delighted.
