Lizzie Lee was the top Leevale finisher at the annual Gerry Farnan Cross Country meet held at the Phoenix Park yesterday. Lizzie finished 7th in a tight battle for the minor positions in a race won by Fionnuala Britton. In the same race Sinéad O’Connor finished 27th, Fionnuala Desmond 49th, Ann Moore 55th, and Carmel Parnell 57th. Carmel won the F55 category and the Leevale ladies finished 2nd team, which was a great result for them.
In the men’s race, Bryan Keane was back in cross country action and had a great race to finish 12th, the first Cork man home.
