The National Aquatic Centre in Abbotstown, Dublin was the perfect venue for the AVIVA All-Ireland Schools Cross Country Championships. The flat course provided great underfoot conditions and as a result fast running was the order of the day. Louise Shanahan (Scoil Mhuire) competed in the junior girls event and she had a great run to achieve a top eight finish.
Philip Crowley (Glanmire Community School) finished 15th in the intermediate boys event.
The schools’ events took place in conjunction with the IUAA Championships, where there were a number of Leevale athletes in action for their colleges.
