Our senior ladies put in another fine performance in the National Inter-County Championship in Santry. The tough 8km European Championship course showed the strength and determination of a strong committed team. Our ladies won silver in the B grade. The team consisted of Donna Mahon, Caitriona Jennings, Aoife O Connor, Brid Griffin, Zoe Melling and Ciara Hassett. First home was the elite Donna Mahon putting in another super performance finishing in 10th position overall. Unfortunately, Caitriona Jennings was forced to pull out on the day. Aoife O Connor continued her cross country debut with a great run finishing well up and securing second place on the team. Another great run for Brid Griffin who's strength endured well over the distance was next home. Zoe Melling ran strongly and was fourth place on team. Ciara Hassett also managed well over the gruelling course was next home. Another super performance for our ladies who should be proud of the great abilities and talents displayed over the tough European Championship course.
