Cross Country Masters and Novice County Championships
Lots Of Medals for Midleton AC 

We had a great crew of runners and supporters at the Cross Country Championships in Castlelyons on Sunday and we saw some very fine running from each and every one of them. Sineád O'Driscoll (Keavney) and Siobhán O'Leary had very fine runs and Sineád finished 2nd Lady whilst Joan Hough was solid as a rock as always and Siobhán Murphy making her debut at cross country had a great run and looked like a natural at it.

Our two men's teams also ran very well with with Team Captain Edmond O'Sullivan leading our Master Men home followed by John Cashman and Neilus Aherne. Ger O'Regan followed with a mighty run also especially considering his PB in the Dublin Marathon last weekend.
Big thanks to all our supporters who turned out as well.

Our Novice men's team were lead home by Club Captain Declan Dorgan who also had the Venice Marathon in is legs since last weekend.He was followed by Don McDonald, Andre Brodkerb and Dan Twohig who all had good runs.
