Congratulations to all athletes that qualified for the All-Ireland Schools Cross Championships. On the 12th of February the best schools athletes from the province met in Santry Demesne for the Leinster Schools Cross Country Championships. Unlike the firm and fast course on show at the West Leinsters, the course in Santry offered a different challenge. Its heavy and adulating surface put even the strongest athletes to the test. The climb up the hill along the walled garden proved to be the most challenging aspect of the race. But shortly after that it was a sprint to the finish as runners came off the final turn and powered up the famous home stretch of the course being cheered on by family and friends.
Junior Girls- Our Lady’s Terenure, Inter Girls- St Peters Dunboyne

The All-Ireland Schools Cross Country Championships will take place on the 7th of March. The race will be held in Santry Demesne.
