Lombard Finishes in Top-10 at Nationals as Leevale Performances are Below Par

The Air Lingus sports complex provided a perfect setting today for the highlight of the domestic cross-country season, the AAI National Inter-Club Cross Country Championships.  While the weather was near perfect, the Leevale performances were far from that.  Cathal Lombard did well finishing 8th in the Senior Men’s race on an otherwise dismal day for Leevale.  The men’s team finished 7th overall, while Leevale did not field a team in any of the other 3 races.  Other finishers in the men’s races included Roy Fahy (33rd), Cillian O’Tuama (35th), and James McGee (68th).  The race was won by Seamus Power of Clare, followed by Peter Matthews and Noel Cullen.  Ann Keenan Buckley of North Laois won the women’s event.
