The South Dublin Primary Schools Cross Country took place in St. Enda’s Park on April 12th. This was the 15th year of the event and it has grown exponentially. There were over 300 in the girls’ race and 270 in the boys. The girls’ race is the largest of its kind in the country and is hosted by Rathfarnham WSAF AC and Scoil Mhuire NS, Ballyboden. Brian Rankin has kindly given sponsorship to this event in recent years. The girls’ race was won by Zoe Ritchie with her sister Jodie in 3rd place. This was an incredible achievement as they were running against the best children in the county. Ryan O Neill was 3rd in the boys’ race followed closely behind by Cathal Keogh in 4th position. Both of their performances were excellent. Cathal was first scorer for his school (Ballyroan BNS) who took the gold team medals for the first time this century and wrested the trophy from St. Brigid’s Foxrock. Ryan contributed towards team silver for his school, St. Mary’s BNS (Grange Road). Thanks to the volunteer stewards from the club who gave of their time and to the staff of Scoil Mhuire who co-ordinated the whole event. All in all it was a great occasion with soft conditions underfoot!
